With a new baby or toddler in the family, most parents babyproof the home, putting locks on the cabinets and bumpers on the tables. But what about the dangers we can’t see—the environmental toxins that can affect our children’s health, growth and development? To help guard against these dangers, there’s Healthy Child Healthy World, the nation’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to protecting children’s environmental health.
Founded by Jim and Nancy Chuda in 1992 after their daughter Colette died from a rare form of non-hereditary brain cancer that has been linked to pesticides, Healthy Child Healthy World has since become a resource for millions of parents and caregivers worldwide. Check out their HealtheHouse, an interactive virtual house helps make it easy for you to identify environmental health hazards in the home.
