Healthy Child, Healthy World: Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home (foreward by Meryl Streep) is a must-have for all parents hoping to raise their children in a healthy environment. The book is packed full of helpful information about the toxins we and our children are exposed to on a daily basis, and explains how these toxins are making us sick, with cases of chronic diseases and illnesses climbing every year.

Making the world a cleaner, greener and safer world starts at home. Christopher Gavigan's book, divided into ten well-organized and empowering chapters, is the best resource available for parents who want to learn exactly how they can make a real difference in the number of toxins their families are exposed to while 1) pregnant, 2) cleaning, 3) eating, 4) beautifying, 5) playing, 6) gardening, 7) drinking and breathing, 8) caring for a pet, and 9) improving their home. The last chapter focuses on how motivated parents can make an even larger impact on the environmental movement.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Extremely useful information
  • The suggestions are doable and easy to follow


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:
  • None. There aren't any disadvantages to reading this book or keeping it as a reference in your home. All the information is relevant, useful, and everyone can make at least some changes in their home and lifestyle that will make him or her and their families healthier right away.

Highly recommended!
