In the past 30 years, new cancer diagnoses almost tripled, hospital admissions for life-threatening allergic reactions have increased fourfold, breast cancer has doubled, male sperm count has halved, the age of puberty is declining, dementia has become synonymous with old age, environmental sensitivities are on the rise, and learning and behavioral disorders in children have skyrocketed. Could these conditions be linked to health hazards in our homes? Yes!

Healthy Home Expert, Nicole Bijlsma explains the delay tactics employed by industry to keep their products in the marketplace and their links to the setting of regulations and exposure standards. Using the latest research, she explains how chemicals in everyday products, allergens like mould, electromagnetic fields and drinking water pollutants in the built environment are associated with almost all chronic illnesses plaguing western countries. She describes why people with environmental sensitivities need to address mould, electromagnetic field and chemical exposures in their home, and the simple steps required to create a healthy, low allergy home.
