HAZARDS FOUND IN THE TYPICAL HOME OR OFFICE ENVIRONMENT

Here are the facts:
1.  According to the American College of Allergies, 50% of all illness is aggravated or caused by
polluted indoor air.
2.  The
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) themselves declare that indoor air is anywhere from
2 to 10 times more hazardous than outdoor air. The EPA also warns us that the indoor air quality is
the United States number one environmental health problem.
3.  Today's homes and buildings are built air-tight and contain a long list of pollution sources.  As a
result, nature's air cleansing agents such as ozone and negative ions are kept out, while
contaminants are kept in.
4.  A recent study found that the allergen level in super insulated homes is 200% higher than it is in
ordinary homes.
5.  According to
Scientific America, a baby crawling on the floor inhales the equivalent of 4
cigarettes per day, as a result of the out-gassing of carpets, molds, mildew, fungi, dust mites, etc.
6.  Most people spend well over 90% of their time indoors meaning that indoor air is going to impact
our health far more than outdoor air.
7.  According to the
Cancer Prevention Coalition, many household cleaning products sold today are
comprised of chemicals that are known carcinogens

The
EPA informs us that 60% of homes are "sick", meaning that they are hazardous to your health to
occupy as a result of airborne pollutants.
