Quick Tip
Prep your produce. The FDA says that all fruits and vegetables, including those that are organically grown, could benefit from a thorough washing to remove soil, surface microbes, and pesticide residues. Skip soap since fruits and veggies are porous and can absorb soaps or detergents. Most experts agree that a water rinse with brisk rubbing works just fine. If you want to go the extra mile, use a non-toxic wash.

Watch NOW -- New Documentary Film: Unacceptable Levels

Yekra Player

Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if were not vigilant, it may take us.

“What I so appreciate about Healthy Child's book is the way the information is delivered. It offers the most credible parenting advice, passed through a trusted filter that makes it understandable and doable.
