Do you think you would be using your current personal care products on your children if you knew they contained harmful and hazardous chemicals? There are over 100,000 synthetic chemicals available on the market. They are in everything: from shampoo to hair dye, nail polish, moisturiser, hair spray, food, water, toys, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, cleaning products, clothing. We ingest, absorb and inhale these chemicals every day. They get into our bodies and end up in our bloodstream or get stored in our organs. The problem is, over half of these chemicals have never been tested for their toxicity on the human body. Many are carcinogens, suspected carcinogens, hormone disruptors, allergens and other harmful substances. Chemical Free Kids is one of the few resources for parents in the world to address the issue of chemicals and their impact on human health and specifically on children and young people: What are the toxic chemicals? How do they get into the body? What are the health and behavioural problems they cause? Why are children particularly exposed and susceptible to chemicals? Chemical Free Kids teaches parents and care givers how to protect their children from the toxins of the modern world.  Keywords: Parenting, Feeding Your Family
