Dr. Greene on USA Today.com

Our spokesperson, Dr. Greene, was quoted in a recent USA Today.com article on the highly discussed topic of environmental toxins. The article by Liz Szabo begins by noting the prevalence of lead and arsenic in everyday items such as handbags but then goes on to share how these chemicals have made their way into items our children use and play with.

“I’m less concerned about handbags than I am about things that are meant to be mouthed, like teethers,” says Alan Greene, a pediatrician at Stanford’s Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and author of Raising Baby Green. “But parents should at least know about the handbags, so they don’t let it become a toy.”

When considering chemical risks to children, Greene says parents should place a priority on products that go in a child’s mouth, such as pacifiers; foods or food containers, such as sippy cups; and products that go on their skin, such as lotion.
