Many people don’t realize that the home is actually one of the most toxic places that we go during the day. Don’t believe me? Check out today’s episode to find out why we say that. No matter how toxic your home is, you don’t need to feel bad about it.
We all have to start somewhere and in fact there are some super simple things you can do to start making changes today. In today’s episode we’re sharing the Top 3 Toxins to Remove from Your Home ASAP along with some strategies for creating a fresh, low-tox environment.
Our homes are increasingly more toxic because of the technological advances and cultural differences from previous eras. We may think of our homes as a safe haven but the truth is, there’s a lot of stuff going on that can make them a dangerous place to live. But don’t worry—it’s a simple fix.
Why are homes so toxic?
- Hormone disruptors
- Heavy metals
- Indoor air quality
Many chemicals we are exposed to are not being tested for safety at all. Having faith in the government or FDA to protect you, should never be something you rely on.
