How to Protect Your Children, When Our Government Cannot with Environmental Test Kits

November 1, 2013 1:21 pm

As a parent, so many things nowadays scare me when it comes to the well being of my children aged 5 and 10, (my most sacred possessions a true labor of love!)  As a rationalist I realize I cannot control everything,  however, I am smart enough to know there are some things I can control.  As a professional and business owner, for over two decades, while also a father and husband, like many, I have finally accepted and realized our government and its systems, designed to assist and protect us, are BROKEN!  Maybe even beyond repair and unfortunately our children and our future are at the greatest risk?

Why you ask? As a nationally recognized expert in the environmental field, and as a regularly requested governmental subject expert who works closely with all levels of health and housing environmental related programs, I will let you in on a big time secret. Our government is NOT promoting good science.  Much of today’s politics are entwined in scandal, driven by money and power for one party.  What’s forgotten is “the good of the people!”  Our Government has squandered away our economic power and stability and as a result we now see long term government downsizing (which I am mostly in favor of).  However, this comes at a price and the price is our kids!  Kick the can down the road, is what our government has been doing for too many years.

One example of this comes from The Center for Disease and Control (CDC).  In December 2011, the CDC was provided a final report on lead poisoning from a panel of the nation’s best subject experts which included, doctors and PhD’s. When the commission first commenced, 5 years previously, President Obama, at the time Senator Obama, and his wife were big supporters and advocates of protecting children from lead poisoning.  After the report came out and as the election heated up and campaign dollars were needed, however, the White house made no mention of how important protecting our children from the long term permanent adverse health impact of lead poisoning is. Instead, they substantially watered down the existing regulations.  Additionally, the CDC was provided with no resources to educate and inform our citizens that the five year advisory panel concluded, based on years of research, data, studies and analysis, that the long term, detrimental impact of inhalation or ingestion of lead can occur at much lower blood lead levels.

It was not until April 2012 that the CDC was able to release and address the U.S.  On its website it stated, “In the past, blood lead level tests below 10 micrograms per deciliter of lead in blood may, or may not, have been reported to parents. The new lower value (of 5 micrograms) means that more children will likely be identified as having lead exposure allowing parents, doctors, public health officials, and communities to take action earlier to reduce the child’s future exposure to lead.”

Since our system will no longer have the resources, money or labor to effectively protect its citizens, we as parents, must take on that responsibly.  Something we can control is what our children are exposed to.  We can preserve their greatest assets and give them the best chance to be successful in a very competitive global future.  There are hundreds of environmental toxins that we live with, breath in, drink, and work in. I found, however, that I can obtain a full line of in home environmental test kits that test for a variety of common household toxins including lead, asbestos, in-door air quality, BPA, pesticide, etc here.

As an environmental professional, this line of environmental test kits s very reasonable priced for a REAL Accredited laboratory analysis with all the supplies, lab analysis, shipping and results included.  The environmental test kits make it very easy to determine if my family and my kids at risk or not! I highly recommend you do the same and give your children the greatest chance by controlling their exposure to toxins that can negatively impair their ability!   Check out
