What People Are Saying

Bill Moyers
Every parent should read this book, as well as every politician and policy maker. We can fight back against the hazards our children face growing up in an environment pervaded by toxins. Here's good information and wise advice.
Harvey Karp
Pesticides, lead paint...yuck! Over the years, we've learned that small amounts of chemicals can hurt our kids. That's why I recommend that all parents read Raising Healthy Children in a Toxic World. It's filled with practical and effective solutions to help you do your most important job - keep your children healthy!
Olivia Newton-John
I highly recommend this book to everyone. We can make a difference and provide a healthier place for our children to live.
