Small Steps to Effect Big Change:

Simple Ways to Keep Your Family Safe from Exposure to Common Environmental Toxins

Dr. Lauren Zajac recently teamed up with Parents Magazine to help create a list of easy and effective changes families can make to reduce exposures to potentially harmful chemicals at home. While complete avoidance of toxins can be difficult, studies have shown the following tips can dramatically reduce exposures:

· Air things out: open windows to reduce pollutants in indoor air

· Read the label: avoid phthalates, antibacterials, and other harmful chemicals

· Leave your shoes at the door: pesticides and other chemicals can be tracked into the home

· Wash your hands: plain soap and water can rinse away both germs and chemicals
