Overview

Raising Healthy Children in a Toxic World: 101 Smart Solutions for Every Family by Phillip J. Landrigan, Herbert L. Needleman, Mary M. Landrigan

A must-have Organic Style title for parents and parents-to-be! All parents want what's best for their children, and protecting them from the toxic materials that surround us—-such as lead, asbestos, PCBs, and pesticides—-is, of course incredibly pertinent to their well-being. Whether choosing where to buy a home, deciding which toys to buy, or just being informed about the safety of a child's school, Raising Healthy Children in a Toxic World provides parents with necessary information and recommended solutions. Tips for parents and parents-to-be include: Test peeling and chipping paint for lead content; Remove wall-to-wall carpets and replace with scatter rugs you can wash; No soap at all is just fine for bathing; Instead of commercial baby wipes, use a cotton cloth dipped in water and baking soda; Written by pediatricians who have done extensive research on pesticides and lead poisoning, this user-friendly volume includes checklists to help readers identify toxins in and around the home and an extensive list of resources for locating more natural products. Each solution is conveniently rated for its importance and difficulty.
