My eBook, Taming the Toxic Menace in Your Home, is a simple, straightforward guide to help readers understand how to deal with the dangerous chemicals in their homes. It lists the most common hazardous substances found in our homes, private offices and public buildings, and tells us where they are and how they got there.
- Find out about the dangerous chemicals that you probably have in your home right now.
- Learn about safer alternatives to many common household products.
- Save money by learning to make your own soap, laundry detergent, household cleaners and other products.
- Discover what to look for before buying a home to make sure it’s not full of toxins.
- Read about the history of the environmental movement and whether we need to worry about the future of our planet.
The book describes what these toxins can do to our health; tells safe, legal ways to get them out of our lives, and offers strategies for detoxifying a home by using alternative products and solutions to use in place of these household toxins. The book also educates readers about the toxins to look out for when building or buying a home.
The toxic chemicals we live with everyday – the household cleaners under our kitchen sinks, the pesticides in garages and sheds, even some personal care products – are killing us. Extensive research has shown a link between exposure to household toxins and almost every disease known today, including cancer. This book is a great resource for people who want to better understand the poisons we breathe, eat and touch every day and want to rid them from their lives.
There’s a big secret the U.S. Government is keeping from you: There are toxic chemicals in your home, right now, that are subject to government safety and disposal regulations when they are used in manufacturing and industry. But, perhaps in an effort to cut down on red tape, these chemicals are not regulated if you use them in your home.
If you used many of these chemicals on the job, you’d have to wear special protective clothing and eyewear, and there would be rules about how you are allowed to dispose of it. There may also be rules about how you use it, how to dilute it, whether you can use it indoors or outdoors or around food or in rooms where children are often present. But you may not even see these rules printed on the product label, and you may decide not to read the instructions and warnings.
Taming the Toxic Menace was written to help you understand the chemicals in your home. You need to know:
- Which chemicals are dangerous;
- How to properly use the chemicals in your home;
- How to make safer alternatives to the toxic products you have in your home;
- How to evaluate products that claim to be “green” or “environmentally-friendly” to see if they’re really safer;
- What to look for when buying a home to make sure you don’t buy a toxic waste dump.
As an added benefit, Taming the Toxic Menace in your Home can save you money. It is a great source of recipes for home-made alternatives to many of the products you use in your household. These recipes tell you how to make products that are not only safer, but may cost much less than the manufactured products you buy in the supermarket.
