Jesse's Project

Jesse's Project was developed to protect children with serious illness from unnecessary exposure to potentially harmful chemicals contained in pesticidal head lice treatments and lice sprays.

Children of any age or size are vulnerable to pesticides, and none are more at risk than the growing number of children treated for illnesses such as cancer, brain tumors, epilepsy, asthma, allergies and AIDS.

Jesse's Project focuses on providing the education and tools for safe prevention, elimination of inappropriate chemical responses and a safe alternative head lice treatment for this especially susceptible and often immuno-suppressed child population.

"We can't remove every potentially harmful chemical exposure from a child's life,
making it imperative to remove those that we can."

- Deborah Z. Altschuler, NPA President
