Review of The Safe Shopper's Bible: A Consumer's Guide to Nontoxic Household Products, Cosmetics, and Food
This book has changed the way I shop. It has given me the most valuable tools as a consumer, wife and mother when I'm deciding what to use to clean with, foods to buy, I could seriously go on and on. I have repeatedly bought this book as gifts for new moms since it lays a wonderful foundation for becoming a healthy family that isn't choked by toxic products in the home. It is very easy to digest, the tables make for quick reference while shopping. I go back to it often for a refresher!
