What are the benefits for my health?
In the past 50 years or so, the way we have constructed buildings has changed significantly. Construction materials are filled with harmful chemicals and toxins that off-gas, buildings are designed to be airtight so toxins can't escape, and to make it worse, we humans spend more time indoors than ever before. All this has led to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) listing indoor air pollution among the top 5 risks to public health. BUT there's hope!
