Resumen:

The Toxic Sandbox : Mercury. Lead. Pesticides. Plastics. Air pollution. PCBs. How can parents sort through the hype, propaganda, and misinformation - and find out what is and isn't a threat to children's health? Investigative journalist, advocate, and concerned parent Libby McDonald separates the facts from the alarmist myths. Based on the latest research along with interviews with top medical, toxicological, and environmental experts, The Toxic Sandbox covers a wide range of essential concerns, including: How can kids be protected from mercury poisoning? What are the sources of lead poisoning, and how can they be avoided? What pesticides are children ingesting, and does eating organic keep them safe? Which teenage beauty products contain carcinogenic phthalates? What are PCBs and PBDEs and why are they found in breast milk? What can be done to stop the childhood asthma epidemic? Delivering reliable, up-to-date information, this indispensable resource will empower parents to protect their kids - and raise awareness for the greater good.
