Pregnancy and the 2014-2015 Flu Season



Are you pregnant or know someone who is? If so, whether or not to receive a flu shot while pregnant will be a decision to consider carefully. There's some information below to help with the process - some of which is conflicting. Remember... Trust your gut. We know what to do. Deep down, we know what's best for us and for our babies. And whatever you decide, know that this is your decision and no one else's.

The Ugly Truth: The Story of Cosmetics

The Ugly Truth: The Story of Cosmetics by Annie Leonard is a must see...and only 7 minutes long. It's the perfect video to pair with the Safe Chemical Act just introduced in Congress.

CALL your representative 202-224-3121 because for the first time in 70 years, we have a real chance to pass a bill to stop chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and learning disabilities from being used in our consumer products. With 1 in 60 boys with autism, and 1 in 6 with a learning disability, Americans can‘t wait any longer.

Just what is the truth about those chemicals in your baby shampoo? your lipstick? your aftershave? And what do they have to do with asthma, cancer and learning disabilities? Learn, share and help give the beauty industry a makeover.

Please watch the video, and we need all hands on deck for this effort - urge your elected officials to co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act.
