Here are other toxins to watch for -
Taken from the book “Staying Healthy with Nutrition.” 
By Elson M Haas, MD

• Smoke – about 96% of cigarette smoke pollutes the air and increases carbon monoxide levels. It is also an irritant and secondary smoking is a legitimate concern. 
• Garbage – this can bring insects and rodents. Keep the house clean and recycle waste. 
• Gas appliances – these emit gas fumes and create carbon monoxide. 
• Kerosene lamps and heaters – these emit kerosene fumes and create carbon monoxide. 
• Fireplaces and woodstoves – these emit chemicals in wood and create carbon monoxide. 
• Particleboard – this is created with urea-formaldehyde, which is possibly carcinogenic. 
• Foam insulation – this is urea-formaldehyde foam insulator (UFFI), a carcinogenic that was banned in 1982 but then reapproved for use. 

Jocelyne’s Note – You may have heard that some companies now offer building products that are eco friendly and toxic-free. They use material like Bamboo, Cork, Recycled Glass, etc. 

Google " Green Building Supplies" and see what you can find. Using Eco Friendly material accomplishes two things; preserves our health and preserves our earth.
