I just heard about a web resource for families, Healthy Child Healthy World. Built upon the premise that our environment directly affects our health (well, yeah!), the organization takes an environmentalist approach to health:
Healthy Child Healthy World is dedicated to protecting the health and well being of children from harmful environmental exposures. We educate parents, support protective policies, and engage communities to make responsible decisions, simple everyday choices, and well-informed lifestyle improvements to create healthy environments where children and families can flourish.
It all sounds like a fabulous resource for families who want to take an active role in improving the health of their own children and children all over the world. Thanks to Squeaky Stroller for the tip!
