In the book, Growing Up Green, the author points out a lot of "dangers" in our homes and environment that I think are ridiculous, but they were mixed in with what I consider reasonable suggestions to lower the amount of toxins and other unnatural products in our lives. She lists many useful resources for organic / non-toxic cleaning agents, children's clothes, toys, and furniture. I thought the book had enough useful information to warrant reading it, but I had to take a lot of the information presented with a grain of salt.
