May is National Asthma & Allergy Awareness month. More than 60 million Americans suffer from asthma or an allergy. According to Allergy Kids Foundation, allergies have risen 400% and asthma has risen 300% in the past twenty years. In other words, the increase in rates has been alarming and we all must become educated on how to protect these children.
Asthma & Allergies Require Us All to Be More Knowledgeable
My almost 3 year old has TONS of food allergies so this topic has been important to me lately. And as a parent with a child who struggles, I know it’s super important to be vigilant about what he is exposed to. One thing true of ALL children is they are far more likely to react to common household chemicals because their little bodies are still growing. They don’t have the protective immunity we have built up over the years as adults. They require more protection than we do and that is why I’m proud to sit in the Board of Healthy Child Healthy World to assist them in educating families about the potential dangers they can avoid. We all want happy and healthy children. Taking some time out of your day to follow the campaigns of Healthy Child gives your children the competitive edge they will need to do their best in school, thrive in their community, and avoid disease.
Healthy Child Healthy World encourages parents to avoid dangerous toxins in the home when it comes to cleaning products because the air inside your home is precious and can be contaminated very easily. According to the American Lung Association, using toxic chemicals to clean your house can lead to chronic respiratory problems, allergic reactions and headaches.
