Healthy Child Healthy World
I found the book, Healthy Child Healthy World: Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home by Christopher Gavigan, approximately 6-7 months after my first child was born. As I read it, I became increasingly upset that I hadn’t known about the book and its contents sooner. I would recommend this book to everyone but especially to parents.
Tens of millions of American children now face chronic diseases and illnesses including cancer, autism, asthma, birth defects, ADD / ADHD, allergies, learning and developmental disabilities, as well as a host of lesser but disruptive ailments. The number gets higher each year and more parents ask why. A growing body of research points to unseen threats wrought by exposure to chemicals in everyday products like cleaning supplies, beauty care and cosmetics, home furnishings, plastics, and some foods and toys as contributing to these ailments.
