Did you know that at least 300 volatile substances found inside many homes and places of business can make you and your family sick? When I researched this, there was a B I G AHA! Moment for me...
. . .detergents, gasoline, oils, plastics, rubber, synthetic fibers,
tobacco, smoke, carpet, clothes, foam insulation, furniture, household cleaners,
paper goods, dry cleaning, inks, lacquers, creosote, varnishes, adhesives,
sealants, paints, particleboard, plywood, and timber treatments…
you will find them without much trouble in any indoor space.
These culprits are responsible, at least in part, for the “off-gassing”--and may result in
chemical hypersensitivity syndrome
and chronic degenerative conditions. and chronic headache.
Think of this: We and our kids and grandkids hang out about ninety (90) percent of the time indoors.
We are breathing volatile substances all the time.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that indoor air is so polluted that it exceeds acceptable air pollution limits. One EPA report states that "indoor air pollution represents a major portion of the public's exposure to air pollution and may pose serious acute and chronic health risks."
But there is a remedy for this situation, and it is inexpensive and lovely to see.
