We love our babies! We spare no expense as we try to walk them safely through life. It starts with covering our outlets, baby gets and childproofing everything within sight...and it just get trickier and more expensive to keep them safe as they age. (And a little more nerve-wrecking once they develop that whole "free thought" thing!)
I was downright terrified to learn that we are not doing as great of a job keeping our babies safe, before they are born, as we thought. The Environmental Working Group did a study, and our babies are not as safe in our wombs as we thought.
"Not long ago scientists thought that the placenta shielded cord blood — and the developing baby — from most chemicals and pollutants in the environment. But now we know that at this critical time when organs, vessels, membranes and systems are knit together from single cells to finished form in a span of weeks, the umbilical cord carries not only the building blocks of life, but also a steady stream of industrial chemicals, pollutants and pesticides that cross the placenta as readily as residues from cigarettes and alcohol."
This is terrifying!!! What's worse is the date of the study, 2005... why are we so slow to change? Where was this information back then?
This stuff matters.
They go on to state, "Of the 287 chemicals we detected in umbilical cord blood, we know that 180 cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests."
There is a better way. We want to teach you!!! Or at least provide you with better options.
