HELPING PEOPLE IN A TOXIC WORLD
While most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their health, many do not know that indoor air pollutants can also do the same. The problems they cause can be subtle and do not always produce easily recognized or immediate impacts on health. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks.
There are many sources of indoor air pollution in any home. These include: building materials and furnishings, wet or damp carpet, cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products that release a toxic chemical known as formaldehyde, household cleaning products, air fresheners such as sprays and plug ins, and some types of hobbies. Also poorly working heaters, furnaces or other fuel burning appliances can release harmful carbon monoxide gas.
You can also be exposed to Benzene which is known to cause cancer. Benzene is among the 20 most widely used chemicals in the United States. It is used mainly as a starting material in making other chemicals, including plastics, lubricants, rubbers, dyes, detergents, drugs, and pesticides.
The main way people are exposed is by breathing in air containing benzene. People can be exposed to benzene in the environment from gasoline fumes, automobile exhaust, emissions from some factories, glues, solvents, paints, and art supplies. These are the most common ways.
