The Earth-Friendly Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care
More and more we are hearing concerns about the toxins in our environment and that dozens of toxins are already in babies when they are born. There is growing interest in the effects of chemicals in our food and homes on our children. The issue of malnutrition in well fed children concerns many parents. How do we avoid the poisons and increase our nutritional intake in today’s world? How do we raise children in a more “green” environment?
These are some of the questions I address with Dr. Alan Greene. Dr. Greene is a pediatrician and a leading voice in the green baby movement. He advises parents how to make healthy green choices for pregnancy, childbirth, and baby care—from feeding your baby the best food available to using medicines wisely. As a father of four himself , Dr. Greene has devoted himself to freely giving real answers to parents’ real questions. From questions about those all too common childhood conditions to those that address the most recent and rare pediatric illnesses. His answers combine cutting edge science, practical wisdom, warm empathy, and a deep respect f or parents, children, and the environment.
