    Most parents have heard about the dangers of BPA in infant bottles, and as such, stores usually sell BPA-free options. However, there are other dangers that parents do not yet know about.

    Disposable diapers pose a health risk to children. We have previously reported on sanitary pads and tampons causing endometriosis through dioxin exposure. Dioxins are a byproduct of chlorine, which is used during the bleaching process. Dioxins accumulate in the body throughout the lifetime of the victim, which makes this particularly important. Dioxin exposure as a child will impede the immune system of the individual forever. They will never be as strong as they could have been. Dioxins are responsible for a range of reproductive and developmental problems, damaging the immune system, along with causing major hormonal imbalances and cancer. Many infants are now exposed to dioxins 24 hours a day, and yet society wonders why girls are beginning puberty younger than ever, and hormonal disorders are becoming increasingly common in children.

    What information do you have on how African women potty train their babies? I've heard/read that this can be done at a very early age--earlier than we are traditionally taught in this society.

    Good question, i'll ask my cousins and get back to you. I do remember when we were kids my grandmother waking us up( the younger children) at-least twice in the middle of the night, putting us on the potty, and we were expected to pass urine.

    But... what chemicals are in the washing detergent that you use to clean them?

    Please ask them about babies as well---I seem to recall that those some months old could be trained in a certain way.
