"Parents get a lot of advice about what to feed their children and how to baby-proof their home," he says, "but many are still completely unaware of the toxic risks posed by everyday basics found in many products, like diapers, home cleaners, body washes, and laundry soaps. Yet, there's growing scientific and medical consensus that some chemicals used in these products are linked to chronic diseases like asthma, ADHD, behavioral disorders, and even cancer."
