Here in our household we're making it a priority to eliminate many of the easily-avoidable chemicals in common products. We're in the process of switching from plastic food containers to all metal and glass, which is quite a chore. I never realized how much we rely on plastic these days for just about everything. Cups, plates, kids toys, tooth brushes, medicine bottles, everything. There have been numerous studies linking BPA and other plastics to cancers and other diseases, but since we don't yet have any concrete conclusive results these chemicals are permitted by our regulators. This is just one aspect on our path to healthy living. It can be so overwhelming!
Luckily for us moms, Healthy Child Healthy World is there to guide us! Healthy Child Healthy World is a great resource for parents to learn more about living a healthy lifestyle and instilling these values in our children so that they in turn will live healthy lives.
