Quick Tip
Choose personal care products that are fragrance-free. Testing has revealed the average fragrance product has 14 secret chemicals not listed on the label. Some of the most common components of fragrance are hormone-disrupting phthalates, as well as sensitizers, which may set off allergic reactions and asthma. Check ingredients lists and look for products that don’t have any artificial "fragrance" or "parfum."

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.

Voices For Change

“Many people do not realize that the environment in which we live is just as important to our health as the nutrients we consume. We all want to make our homes the safest place in the world for our families. Many of us think about the potential impact of climate change, but very few think about the chemicals we are exposing ourselves to in our homes. Thanks to the efforts of Healthy Child Healthy World, moms, dads, and caregivers are gaining the knowledge they need to make smart choices and keep their families safe. It is our greatest hope that we make the world a healthier place for future generations by inspiring change in one person, one life at a time.”
