This blog discusses the EPA’s list of chemicals in our environment that are dangerous to children. Some of them will be no surprise, like BPA, which has gotten a lot of bad press in recent years. Aspartame made the list too, an artificial sweetener that’s found in all kinds of foods and beverages. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is associated with Chinese food, though many Chinese restaurants don’t use it anymore. However, it’s in a huge variety of packaged foods you buy at the grocery store. Make sure to read the whole list and know where these chemicals are coming from so you can try to minimize your kids’ exposure.
