Do you ever feel like you have information overload? We are constantly being bombarded with information. And this information is scary. Our toys are tainted with lead, plastics are poisoning us, high fructose corn syrup contains mercury, vaccines may cause autism, watching television affects language development, etc. Sometimes I wish I didn't have all of this information at my fingertips.
We have gotten rid of all #7 plastics. We are no longer buying any products that contain high fructose corn syrup. I have worried myself sick over Izzy's last round of vaccines. And I always feel a nagging concern when I turn on the television. But despite all of my efforts to protect my children, I still worry. What will the scientists and researchers discover tomorrow? How have we created such a toxic world? There are dangers lurking in very corner, and I am trying desperately to shelter my babies from them.
I just want my children to grow up in a happy and healthy environment. Why is this simple goal so hard to achieve?
