http://www.bygpub.com/natural/living.htm - Did you know that many everyday products found in and around your home can be toxic to your family? Children are especially susceptible to toxic substances both because of their small size and because of their fast rate of growth. Studies have shown that many toxins we are exposed to every day are responsible for increased rates of cancer, immune disorders and other health problems especially in children.

CHEC is a national non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public,
specifically parents and
caregivers, about environmental toxins that affect children's health.
- The Center for Children’s Health and the Environment (CCHE) is the nation’s
academic research and policy center to examine the links between exposure to toxic pollutants and childhood illness. CCHE
was established in 1998 within the Department of Community and Preventive Medicine of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
CCHE’s mission is to promote the health of children by conducting environmental health and policy research.
- A comprehensive listing of household products and
their constituents with actual or potential hazards, as identified in the virtual house.
- is an investigation of the history of the chemical revolution and the
companies that drove it –
and how companies worked to withhold vital information about the risks from workers, the government, and the public.
Journalist Bill Moyers and producer Sherry Jones rely on an archive of documents the public was never meant to see –-
documents that reveal the industry's early knowledge that some chemicals could pose dangers to human health that were not
disclosed at the time.
- Awareness of learning and behavioral disorders is reaching more and more
people, either first hand or through someone we know. Can toxics in our air, water or food combine with other factors to keep
our children from reaching their full human potential? How can we protect our children from environmental harm during
vulnerable periods of development? This site is about learning more, finding resources, sharing what we learn, and taking action
for our families and communities. Parents and parents-to-be, physicians and health care professionals, educators,
environmentalists, community activists, public officials and many others will find valuable information and resources here,
because we all have a stake in preventing harm.

According to an article in German in the Ithaca journal, a German university study has found significant concentrations of glyphosate in the urine samples of city dwellers. The analysis of the urine samples apparently found that all had concentrations of glyphosate at 5 to 20-fold the limit for drinking water. As well as being used increasingly widely in food production, glyphosate-based weedkillers often also get sprayed onto railway lines, urban pavements and roadsides.
Disturbingly, the Ithaca journal reports (in our translation), “The address of the university labs, which did the research, the data and the evaluation of the research method is known to the editors. Because of significant pressure by agrochemical representatives and the fear that the work of the lab could be influenced, the complete analytical data will only be published in the course of this year.”
News of this study comes not long after the publication of a study confirming glyphosate was contaminating groundwater. Last year also saw the publication of two US Geological Survey studies which consistently found glyphosate in streams, rain and even air in agricultural areas of the US.
Other recent studies – see the abstracts below – indicate that people may not only be absorbing glyphosate from multiple sources but that it can circulate in the blood and can even cross the placental barrier and so reach the developing fetus.

keeping your baby safe.
- Actress Kelly Preston and Grease icon Olivia
Newton-John have a lot more in common than just their tie to John Travolta. Each has taken on her most serious role yet —
protecting children from household chemicals and toxins.
– This website is dedicated to help educate consumers about the
products that we all assume are safe products because they are sold in stores, and that our government has laws to protect us
against harmful products. But, unfortunately, most of the chemicals in ordinary products that we use or are exposed to every
day have not been tested for safety. What's worse, for years the chemical industry has known the toxic effects of many
chemicals used in products today, but never revealed their studies to the public or to the government.
