Read his story here:
I honestly don't know if this has been proven to be the cause of Jesse's leukemia but it's better to be safe than sorry. Especially when a child's life might be on the line.
I stumbled upon that site a few months ago when Rain acquired lice I think from the boys across our house (that's why I don't let her play with them anymore. And not it's not from the twins). Once again, researching pays off. I read Jesse's story before buying any lice shampoo for Rain.
So I bought Oilganics instead. It herbal so it doesn't contain any pesticides. It's all-natural, not to mention it smells really good!
Always read the labels first before buying. Anything that has weird chemical names are questionable I guess. Make sure there is no pesticide. And don't forget to always check with your pedia. Just thought I'd share this story ASAP before any mom reached for a bottle of head lice shampoo for their children, just like how my relative almost did! Such a good coincidence that it was out of stock when she was buying!
