Information to help your family reduce their environmental exposures

Information for Families: All That Matters


Toxic substances are synthetic chemicals and metals that can harm your health.  The potential for exposure to toxic substances is present in nearly every aspect of everyday life and these exposures can affect all aspects of reproductive health. As we learn more about the nature of these exposures and their harmful effects on human health, there is a growing demand for simple and accessible information on how to protect against exposure. In order to meet that need, PRHE has developed a series of brochures that describe the common types and routes of exposure to toxic substances and provide evidence-based recommendations on ways to reduce those exposures, called the All That Matters brochures. Explore each brochure to find the information that is most relevant to you and your family; getting informed is the first step towards better health.

All That Matters brochures are nontechnical, patient-centered guides that provide tips and suggestions for avoiding toxic chemical exposure at home, in the workplace and in the community.  The All that Matters compendium  is an outcome of the collaborations we have built through our From Advancing Science to Ensuring Prevention (FASTEP) Alliance—including clinical and scientific experts and advocates in the fields of reproductive, occupational, environmental and pediatric medicine, public health, and toxicology.
