|Information||In our daily lives, we are exposed to chemicals and pollutants like asbestos, dust, lead, cleaning products, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, mould, carbon monoxide, and radon. Exposure to these environmental pollutants can cause real health problems and it can be difficult to know how to reduce our exposure.
Are there pollutants in my home? What are the health risks? Who is most at risk? How do I protect myself and those in my care? The Healthier Home for a Healthier You Webinar Series can help you answer these questions!
