Too many of our children are getting sick. Increases in occurrences of pediatric cancer are being linked to decades of nitrate use, and the chemicals on playing fields and civic green spaces are causing all kinds of allergies and health problems.
We know that our country’s municipal leaders and great farmers care, so, we are launching a Parents Against Chemicals campaign to not only create awareness, but to also help decision-makers learn about real alternatives that are cheaper, natural, and better for our soils and our health. In other words, it is time to help municipalities and farmers save money, make their soils healthier, and get chemicals out of our soils, our foods, our watersheds, and out of our children!
As can be seen by our section on news and research, the extent of the problem is vast. This is why, we are putting together a national petition, that we will present to municipal and school leaders across our country telling them that we want to see change. We also have a section below that will keep you informed on the latest news, research, and data about your own state, plus, for those wishing to take a deep scientific dive, we have a section on the Bibliography of the current Research: Effects of Nitrates on Health
If you want to help our children play and live in a safer environment, join us by signing the petition. You can also show your support by purchasing a T-Shirt, knowing that all of the net proceeds from each sale are donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
