Healthy Child Healthy World began after five-year-old Colette Chuda died of a rare form of non-hereditary cancer linked to environmental factors; her parents, Jim and Nancy Chuda, turned their grief into action and formed Healthy Child Healthy World (formerly the Children’s Health Environmental
Coalition) in 1992.
Today, millions of America’s children face a historically unprecedented rise in chronic disease and illness such as cancer, autism, asthma, birth defects, and learning disabilities. Credible scientific evidence increasingly points to contaminants in our environment and chemicals in everyday products as causing and contributing to many of these diseases. Playing a leadership role in one of the most important public health and environmental movements of the 21st century, Healthy Child Healthy World, a national, non-profit 501(c) 3 organization headquartered in Los Angeles, ignites the movement that empowers parents to protect
children from harmful chemicals. www.healthychild.org.
