Great article in Washington Post highlighting how toxic chemicals are seen as posing risks during pregnancy

Summer 2018 in Washington Post

“For years and years, we’ve talked about alcohol, tobacco and recreational drug use — limiting all those during pregnancy...,” “But in the last decade, ACOG has come to realize that lead and pesticides and PCBs and mercury that are found in certain fish — that all of those pose a harm to the fetus in the womb and that it makes an awful lot of sense for women to minimize their exposure to those chemicals.” Dr. Philip Landrigan, dean for global health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York

SafetyNEST is delighted to be called out as a resource recommended by UCSF to provide doctors and pregnant women easy access to research on prenatal environmental health. We will also provide clear and concise guidance on what to avoid, what to select, and safer alternatives. Our goal is to launch the full platform in the late fall 2018!
