Title: Reduce your child's exposure to chemicals

URL: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/health-fitness/health-care/reduce-your-childs...

Abstract: In addition to largely unknown chronic effects, many chemicals in common household products pose immediate danger if accidentally ingested. For those reasons, consumers should read labels carefully and choose products that appear to pose the lowest risk. It's not easy. You may see product labels that say "nontoxic" or "nonirritating," but those claims are not clearly defined or verified, says Consumers Union. This article identifies four areas of concern: auto, medicine, pest control and art supplies.
