Hidden Hazards In Common Consumer Products & Their Effect On Indoor Environments & Health – Dr. Anne Steinemann Lecture

Why should you care about toxins in consumer products and environmental pollutants?

Can you become sick from the everyday use of consumer personal products?

Is it true that components in essential oils can emit hazardous air pollutants and also react with ozone in the air and create VOC’s like formaldehyde?

What percentage of chronic diseases are caused by indoor air pollutants?

Are baby products and cosmetic products labeled as organic, green, and all-natural a safer option?

Does your skin protect you from indoor air pollutants?

Do air fresheners improve air quality?

Can furnishings inside commercial and residential buildings make us sick?

What is a VOC (Volatile Organic Compound)?

Can people develop cancer, heart complications, immune system damage, or become disabled by indoor air pollutants in their home and place of work?

What does science say about exposures to chemicals like fragrances and other environmental pollutants?

Do ingredients in cosmetics, cleaning products, and fragrances need to be disclosed in the USA and other countries?

You will find answers to all of these questions and more in this “must watch” presentation by Dr. Anne Steinemann’s.
“Contrary to popular belief, most of our exposure to hazardous pollutants occurs in places we consider safe—indoor environments, such as homes, schools, and workplaces. Primary sources of these pollutants are also considered safe—everyday consumer products, such as cleaning supplies, air fresheners, and personal care products. However, indoor air environments are generally unregulated, and consumer products are not required to disclose all ingredients. Even so-called ‘green’ products can emit hazardous pollutants, similar to regular products. In this Dean’s Lecture, Professor Anne Steinemann will discuss the hidden hazards in our consumer products and indoor environments, and offer practical solutions.” Source

    Mold at Ground Zero for CFS

    History Doesn’t Remember the Names of the Critics

    The history of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) begins in Incline Village, Nevada in 1985. In the medical history of CFS, each of the concepts applies–failed theories and failed criticism.
    One victim, Erik Johnson, told everyone who would listen that mold was a cause of CFS. He came up with his theory at the wrong time in the politics of medical opinion, as a unknown viral cause was blamed instead. Johnson tried repeatedly to get the attention of leading CFS researchers then and now to look at what he knew about mold sensitivity. None of the heralded CFS researchers would listen.
    Twenty years passed before Erik’s mold opinions were vindicated.
