According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air:
In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.
And consider this: a 2016 study led by researchers at the George Washington University Milken Institute of Public Health found that typical house dust contains 45 toxic chemicals, and that 90% of the dust samples contained 10 extremely harmful chemicals that are known to cause cancer, hormonal disruption, reproductive harm, and nervous system toxicity. These chemicals make their way into the dust via the products we choose to bring into our homes.
But the good news is: you CAN kick these chemicals out of your home and create the healthiest home possible for your family.
This easy-to-digest guide teaches you everything you MUST know about the sources of unhealthy pollutants in your home — pollutants that may be stressing your liver, throwing your hormones out of balance, aggravating asthma and allergies, and increasing your risk of disease — and how to make simple but significant changes to decrease your exposure.
The guide goes SO far beyond just talking safer cleaning products. We’ll also talk mold, pest control, lawn care, air purifiers, water filtration systems, paint, flooring, furnishings, EMFs… and everything in between!
