Healthy Child, Healthy World is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is: “igniting a movement that inspires parents to protect young children from harmful chemicals.” They say:
“Healthy Child, Healthy World exists because more than 125 million Americans, especially children, now face an historically unprecedented rise in chronic disease and illness such as cancer, autism, asthma, birth defects, ADD / ADHD, and learning and developmental disabilities. Credible scientific evidence increasingly points to environmental hazards and household chemicals as causing and contributing to many of these diseases.”

Among many other resources at Healthy Child, Healthy World, including information about creating awareness in schools, you can follow this link to a glossary of toxic chemicals, which provides information on each one.
It’s too late to turn back the clock for those already impacted by multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic illness, cancer and other diseases as a result of environmental triggers, but we can join together a take a positive stand for our children and for our future.
