How to Create a Healthy Home
In their newly released book, The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family from Hidden Household Dangers, co-authors Dave Wentz and his microbiologist father, Dr. Myron Wentz, uncover the health hazards lurking in the average home and offer simple, effective ways to create a healthier place to live.
Studies by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency indicate that indoor air is often two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. “Every second of every day, we face an onslaught of unnecessary dangers—toxic chemicals, negative energies and unforeseen side effects,” advises Dave Wentz. Culprits include chemicals in carpets, paints and common cleaning products, as well as radiation from Wi-Fi, cell phones and other electronic gadgets.
The Healthy Home walks readers room-by-room through a typical house, pointing out hazards—many of them surprising and counterintuitive—and offering easy-to-implement fixes. The book blends science with practical tools and explanations in layman’s terms. Each chapter begins with a quiz that enables readers to assess their current lifestyle; the more points they accrue, the more toxic their home is. Every chapter concludes with a series of simple solutions, including point values that make improvements easy to achieve and measure.
