Toxic vs non toxic Cleaning Products

1) There are 2 school specific posts here:
They are titled, Toxic Threats to Child Development & Chemical Awareness in Schools.
They are both on the same page so one is under the other.
2) Here is a link to Mount Sinai School of Medicine. They are from my neck of the woods (Northeast USA) and have a very prestigious academic reputation.
3) Something extra I found looking through other posts on The Best Nest   (   )

Interview with Dr. Philip Landrigan  -- From: A Prescription to Better Serve Kids
Question: What, in the coming decade, has the potential to be as serious a threat as lead? Answer:
  We need to reduce the exposure of people of all ages to pesticides. Pesticides are used in enormous amounts in homes, schools and day care centers and on lawns and gardens. Once released, they are immediately widespread in the environment and create enormous potential for harmful health effects. MANY common household products officially fall under the category of pesticides
