"Healthy Home, Healthy Family" explores how industry keeps toxic products in the marketplace, and why the exposure standards for chemicals and electromagnetic fields are not adequate to protect your family. The adverse health effects arising from exposure to health hazards in the built environment includes a detailed discussion on the allergens in the home (house dust mites, pet, pollen and pests), the latest understanding on mould and biotoxins in a water-damaged building; the chemicals in building materials and everyday products; drinking water contaminants and why you need to use a water filter; the various forms of electromagnetic fields that impact the built environment, and the simple ways to reduce exposure to the radiation emitted from cell phones and wireless technologies.
