SAFER FOR YOUR BABY: A Guide To Living Better with Fewer Chemicals
by Lynn Tondat Ruggeri, Ph.D. and Laura Costa, Ph.D. Third Edition.

OUR BOOK: 

PROVIDES simple ways to protect you and your family from harmful chemicals commonly found

in personal care products, food, cleaners, toys, plastics, pesticides, home furnishings and much

more is wriiten for new and expecting parents, but is valuable for ANYONE who wants
to live a healthier life.
 

EXPLAINS THE URGENCY OF THE PROBLEM:

Unlike any other time in human history, we are living in a world filled with hundreds of thousands of synthetic chemicals.

With over 1,000 new chemicals introduced each year into our environment and food chain,
the potential for harm is staggering. In an attempt to keep the public informed, there is a constant barrage from the media about the dangers of chemicals and additives in seemingly everything.
This includes the foods we eat, the products we put on our skin, cleaning products, insect repellents, products with fragrances, carpeting, and even plastic baby bottles. The findings of melamine and jet fuel (perchlorate) in baby formula and bisphenol-A (BPA) and phthalates in plastic containers and plastic can linings and body care products/containers are just a few examples of recent concerns on contaminants.  Research on BPA for example has been shown to be linked to miscarriages, and a myriad of health symptoms such as obesity, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, and cardiac issues. Most recently, research has shown a link between pesticide exposure during pregnancy and autism.

This book helps consumers to identify the chemicals most likely to cause harm,
to avoid/minimize exposure to those chemicals and to find safer options. Some examples: We give specific guidelines on how to avoid the types of of plastics that contain BPA and on how to adopt least toxic practices and non-toxic solutions when it comes to pesticides and pest control. Harmful effects are generally greatest prenatally as well as for newborns and young children. However, everyone can benefit from strategies to decrease their "chemical body burden".  

Safer for Your Baby is a timely, valuable resource for healthier living.

Our THIRD EDITION has been updated with current resources and information on the topic of non-toxic living.

Our 65-page book is printed on recycled paper with soy ink. The cover picture is now in color.
