Sandra's argument that our environmental issues are also parenting issues is right on - I'm so happy to see her articulate it for me! I have felt the frustration she describes of running around trying to educate myself and make our home, food, cleaning products, etc. safe for our family - it's a part-time job! And seeing the financial impact of health issues among our children from environmental toxins all in one place is sobering. It is certainly having an impact on education in our country as well...

What to do next?...
