Are you reading this at home?
Take a look around you – a good, long look – and notice the environment where you may be spending up to 90 percent of your time. Is it a healthy space? Do you know? Actually, that was a bit of a “trick question”. Fact is, most of us don’t know.
It’s likely that many of the items in your home could be hazardous to your health because of the toxic chemicals they contain. So, if you want to live in a healthier environment, consider making some changes.
An easy first step? Start with your bedroom.
Specifically, the mattress on your bed where you sleep for several hours every night. Depending on the materials it’s made from, it can degrade the air quality in your home by emitting fumes from toxic chemicals (“off gassing”), and/or turn into a breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites.
