Please note: The above information only briefly touches upon the environmental toxins children are subjected to throughout their childhood. The above seven were chosen based on the prevelancy in an American child's daily life; not necessarily on the degree of toxicity. There are many other toxins that every parent should be aware of, some of which are at least as toxic as those above. These include:

Lead

We did not include this toxin, as it is already among the most well known childhood toxin.
