Pesticides are everywhere, from our food to our lawns. They can be harmful, especially for children. Contact with chemicals can lead to problems with memory, reflexes, and attention. Experts recommend washing fruits and vegetables. Take shoes off at the door so you don’t track chemicals (and dirt) through your home. Wear gloves when using chemicals and be extra careful. Learn about ingredients in products used in your home or yard. Store hazardous products in a safe place. Instead of using bug sprays, clean more often and put food away. And don’t forget pets. Keep fleas and ticks away with the least toxic treatment you can find.
