This book provides parents with information and latest research about everyday environmental concerns and the link to illnesses such as asthma, ADHD, obesity and precocious puberty. The book features practical suggestions of how to avoid the everyday environmental triggers that enable parents to create environments for their children’s health and well being.

‘This book helps provoke much needed questions about exposure to toxic chemicals, and provides the pathways to finding answers.’
Ray Moynihan, international author ‘Sex, Lies and Pharmaceuticals’ & ‘Selling Sickness’

“What an excellent book! A boon for young parents wanting to do the best for their children but deprived of information”
Peter Thompson, film critic and reviewer

'It’s a great resource for anyone wanting to get a handle on the toxic threats to children but importantly it has heaps of information on how to create healthy and green spaces for children that won’t cost the earth.'
