Children are particularly vulnerable to the toxic effects of pesticides. Birth defects, developmental disorders, learning disorders, and brain abnormalities are more common in babies that have been exposed to pesticides...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Toxins are a nasty addition to our world, floating and landing far and wide. Get a handle what's clean and what's dirty to buy in foods to avoid the worst offenders and perhaps lessen the impact of the negative impact on baby's health.
You’d think a newborn baby would have a fresh start when it comes to toxic chemicals. But chemicals move across the placenta, so a baby emerges with some of the same pollution in its system as its mother...
Editor´s Note from Zorica Denton: This article is very informative about toxic chemicals that can be passed to unborn child try mothers placenta. Once born, infants take in even more pollution, through breathing, eating, and passage through the skin, just as adults do. They are more sensitive to the chemicals and toxin than adults.

We all occasionally have glimpses and experiences of enlightenment, experiences of awe and grandeur in observing a sunset or listening to a symphony, of unconditional love for a partner or newborn baby, of gratitude in surviving an illness or accident, and of pure joy in just being alive.

Editor's Note: Dr. Feder does a good job of making you think in this article about the CDC recommendation of a flu shot during pregnancy. Flu shots contain mercury, yet they tell you to stay away from mercury ladened fish while pregnant. Mercury is a known neurotoxin that crosses the blood brain barrier (meaning it gets in the brain).

Sunday afternoon, with an hour to spare, I wander to the garden to thin some baby carrots - those wee beginnings of carrots, just tufts of green really - so as to create more space for the few I leave to fully grow and flourish. The sun is warm on my back as I get busy with this task that takes focused attention: one pull too many and a whole potential carrot is gone!...
