The World Health Organization (WHO) has released the most extensive research to date on the impacts of environmental toxins on children's health. The report indicates that over 30% of childhood diseases can be linked to exposure to environmental toxins. According to WHO researchers, 13 million human deaths could be prevented annually by improving the environment.
While the WHO report deals specifically with the human animal, not pets, we know that many of these same effects do occur in non-human animals. Much like children, our pets have an increased risk of exposure to toxins on a lawn, as they are low to the ground, spend a lot of time rolling in the grasses, chew on almost anything they find in the lawn, and their metabolic rate is higher than an adult's. In addition, our pets don't get bathed every day, and chronic dermal contact can add up to overall doses that may be lethal.
