Children and Our Poisoned Environment

Our children's health is being harmed by many pollutants and toxins, including pesticide runoff from lawn chemicals into our water supplies; gmo's; chemicals in shampoos, soap, lotions, and fabrics; pollutants found in the soil in which our food crops are grown, and in which our children play; and pollutants in the air we breathe.

All of these toxins, and many others, are harming our children through chemical overload. Children are at a higher risk for toxic exposure, due to their faster metabolisms and smaller bodies, than the average adult male on which many pollutant and toxicity studies have been based. If you are concerned about this, I'd like to direct you to the book and website, "Healthy Child, Healthy World," at the following link and the Children's Environmental Health Network at this link

Knowledge is power. Since all children are at risk, adults are responsible for protecting them using a combination of knowledge and environmental activism.
