Great resource Apr 7, 2008
This is a very good reference to have on hand. It very specifically tells you what chemicals and pesticides are in various products so you can make choices. You can use it to choose better if you don't go the whole organic route.
The most valuable book you'll ever buy Jan 29, 2008
This book has changed the way I shop. It has given me the most valuable tools as a consumer, wife and mother when I'm deciding what to use to clean with, foods to buy, I could seriously go on and on. I have repeatedly bought this book as gifts for new moms since it lays a wonderful foundation for becoming a healthy family that isn't choked by toxic products in the home. It is very easy to digest, the tables make for quick reference while shopping. I go back to it often for a refresher!
Most helpful Sep 8, 2007
Most helpful and informative and a guide to consummer goods that are chemical free and safe to use for health and well being.
out of date for products but good general info Aug 6, 2007
Unfortunately this book was published too many years ago to have many products that are still around or cover recent products. The good part of this book is that it educates you about the harmful and toxic things that are in so many of the everyday products we use.
