If you have children, you must be educated about the risks of lead and flame retardants. Here are some new articles I came across today:
From the FDA: Survey Data on Lead in Women’s and Children’s Vitamins – We use Rainbow Light, and all of our vitamins were listed on this report as containing lead.
What You Can Do – This article is helpful in giving suggestions for dealing with the flame retardants already present in your home; as with lead, wet mopping is key. However, it’s also depressing to note how much of this stuff is in our home and how unwilling I am to get rid of it.
If you haven’t already, consider signing up for the Environmental Working Group‘s Newsletter. It will keep you up to date on the latest research.
