    Hi Rachel,
    Thank you for sharing this vital information! Believe me, I have been accused of sounding like a broken record as well–by my own family, in fact, however, this is such a critical issue to raise awareness of. As you so aptly clarified, “pesticide exposure has been linked to asthma, allergies, neurological disorders, autism and even cancer—which is now the leading cause of death by disease for American kids.” Such a warning should definitely make moms take notice! We have been lulled into a false sense of security by engaging advertising and marketing campaigns. I have begun to make my own home care and cleaning products to avoid toxic exposure. I buy organic food, use castile soap and avoid antibacterial products.

    Oh that’s so great, thank you for sharing! Please take a look at http://www.MommyGreenest.com for more info like this. I’ve spent the last eight years building up the library, so there’s a LOT to read up on–but it sounds like you’re already on top of most of it! Thanks again for commenting, I really appreciate it 🙂 Rachel
