Healthy Child Healthy World has named me as a one of their new Parent Ambassadors.

Healthy Child Healthy World is a non-profit organization that works to help parents protect children from harmful chemicals found in the environment and in the products we use every day.

Healthy Child is on a mission to increase awareness one parent at a time.  The organization was created because more than 125 million Americans, especially children, now face a historically unprecedented rise in cancer, autism, asthma, birth defects, ADD/ADHD, and learning and developmental disabilities. Credible scientific evidence increasingly points to environmental hazards and household chemicals as causing and contributing to many of these diseases.

Healthy Child Healthy World has named 21 volunteer Parent Ambassadors, including actress Amy Brenneman to expand awareness about the environmental hazards that are dangerous to our children.

The Parent Ambassadors are part of an on-going effort to create a safer world for children everywhere. Healthy Child Healthy World has assembled individuals with diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and expertise. Here are a few of the many parents and activists who are part of this organization’s efforts to educate families and protect children:

Jeffrey Hollender -President, Seventh Generation, Inc.
Anna Getty – Green Living and Holistic Lifestyle Expert
Erin Brockovich – President of Brockovich Research & Consulting, Environmental Advocate
Sheryl Crow – Musician
Olivia Newton-John - Singer, Actress, Environmentalist

A recent CNN special, Toxic America investigated the toxins people are exposed to on a daily basis, with a focus on children. Toxic America featured new research linking early exposure to harmful chemicals with obesity, autism, ADHD, lower IQ, sexual reproduction issues, cancer, and more.
