passing back the CHEC pin


Good Morning America

Olivia, Kelly Preston and Nancy Chuda appeared on Good Morning America to promote CHEC's campaign for labelling household products. The interview was very informative. Apparently, up to 97% of ingredients in household products, cleaners etc, are inert (ie trade secrets). So it's impossible to know what's in these products. 90% of chemicals used in the home haven't been tested for children who have weaker immune systems than adults.

When asked by the host, Dianne Sawyer, how they can prove that household products aren't safe for children Olivia answered that it's best to err on the side of safety and use alternate products in the home - ideas and suggestions are available in their new video "Under My Roof" (see

Dianne asks Olivia about her how she's doing after her breast cancer and Olivia answers with a smile but a quiet, humble "doing great, thank you."

Nancy Chuda gives Dianne Sawyer a CHEC pin which Dianne drops concentrating on the next show's link. Olivia picks it up and hands it back laughing. The show ends with Olivia and Kelly joining in with Good Morning America's dancethon.
