We are really excited that The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) has published this report on Chemical Exposures during Pregnancy: Dealing with Potential, but Unproven, Risks to Child Health.

This can only be a good thing to ensure we can all make an informed choice about exposure to the cocktail of chemicals in the environment. It’s not regulation but it’s the next best thing.

We want you to tell us the product you most hate, the one you think should never have been put on the market because
a) it’s not necessary
b) poses a risk to human health
and
c) damages the environment

Please comment on this blog and then email nappies@lcrn.org.uk (to enter the competition)

The prize is a copy of Healthy, Happy Baby by Pat Thomas. Former Health editor of the Ecologist she is a well respected author, journalist and broadcaster in the field of alternative and environmental health.

We will draw names out of a hat at 12 noon on Thursday 13 June.
