Healthy Child Healthy World was founded by Nancy and James Chuda, who lost their four-year-old daughter to cancer caused by in utero exposure to pesticides. Since its inception in 1991, Healthy Child Healthy World has been a national leader in educating people about the health hazards and environmental toxins present in and around what should be a child’s place of greatest security and safety: Home.

Among the organization’s goals are: to expand awareness of toxic risks; encourage easy corrective actions and responsible choices; advocate for change in corporate policies and governmental legislation to protect children; and engage grassroots community action and commitment to creating a healthier world.

With the support of legislators, medical doctors and celebrities such as Olivia Newton John, Meryl Streep and environmental activist Erin Brockovich, Healthy Child Healthy World has inspired millions of parents to create and maintain cleaner, greener, safer environments in which to raise their families.
