green as green can BE! and the case of 300 volatile hazards

By
Education & Training with Asheville 1031 REFERRING BROKERAGE 209970

Did you know that at least 300 volatile substances found inside many homes and places of business can make you and your family sick? When I researched this, there was a B I G AHA! Moment for me...

THE CULPRITS

. . .detergents, gasoline, oils, plastics, rubber, synthetic fibers,
tobacco, smoke, carpet, clothes, foam insulation, furniture, household cleaners,
paper goods, dry cleaning, inks, lacquers, creosote, varnishes, adhesives,
sealants, paints, particleboard, plywood, and timber treatments…
you will find them without much trouble in any indoor space.

 These culprits are responsible, at least in part,  for the  “off-gassing”--and  may result in  

asthma,

     heavy fatigue,

          conjunctivitis,

               chemical hypersensitivity syndrome

                    and chronic degenerative conditions. and chronic headache.  

 

Think of this: We and our kids and grandkids hang out about ninety (90) percent of the time indoors.
We are breathing volatile substances all the time.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that indoor air is so polluted that it exceeds acceptable air pollution limits. One EPA report states that "indoor air pollution represents a major portion of the public's exposure to air pollution and may pose serious acute and chronic health risks."

But there is a remedy for this situation, and it is inexpensive and lovely to see.
Want to hazard a guess?

Stay tuned for some mighty fine remedies...
