My latest concern, likely in response to some incessant commercials on the subject, is the existence of disgusting, invisible dust mites that camp out in our mattresses, living off our skin flakes (yuck!) and generally up to no good.
Unhealthy homes pose a threat to millions of Americans. These dangers can include chemicals like Bisphenol A, formaldehyde, VOCs and PVC in building products. Ironically, efforts to make homes more efficient have resulted in trapping more of these chemicals inside.
It turns out that the pollution inside our homes is worse than outside. Your home may smell clean and feel safe when it's actually filled with toxins from cleaners, paint, tap water, furniture and more.
