Phthalates in shampoos, chemicals in baby bottles, flame retardants in mattresses, VOCs in carpeting, dramatic increases in childhood asthma, autism, behavioral disorders, and cancers— are all confusing and disturbing issues and trends affecting our families today.  How can parents raise the healthiest children possible and create a healthy and non-toxic lifestyle for their family? To help navigate these concerns and offer credible and easy solutions, comes an essential book for all parents - Healthy Child Healthy World: Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home (Dutton) which is set to become the eco-friendly lifestyle guide for everyone who loves a child.

Written by Christopher Gavigan, CEO / Executive Director from the nation’s leading children’s health non-profit - Healthy Child Healthy World, this new book features practical advices for all stages of parenting. Each of the ten chapters in Healthy Child Healthy World deals with managing a different aspect of the home environment—cleaning supplies, food, beauty care, toys, air quality, gardens, pets—clarifying the risks and offering user-friendly green tips that anyone can take at their own pace.

“This book helps us all learn about the opportunities we have to make simple, everyday choices to prevent harm and clean up our act at home,” Gavigan writes in his Introduction. “We all can’t do everything, but we all can do something for children’s health and the health of the planet.”
