What if many of the items in the average American home were actually toxic? What common items like perfume are actually harmful to your health? That is the premise of The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family from Hidden Household Dangers by Myron Wentz, Dave Wentz, and Donna K. Wallace. Dr. Myron Wentz is a microbiologist , therefore he is qualified to write on the matter.
Wentz believes that the Average home is actually a deathtrap of sorts, one that is slowly killing those who dwell inside it. He also believes that environmentalism begins at home, from within the home, and the solutions he provides are available and fairly easy to implement. While pretty much everyone should be concerned about the issues dealt with in this book, the matter of the contaminated dwelling space is of most concern to those who have immune deficiency issues and those with allergies. These are the people most vulnerable to the toxins and chemicals that may be slowly poisoning American homeowners. For example, Wentz compares perfumes, many of which can be found in the average household, to asbestos which is known to cause mesothelioma. He believes that in the future, perfumes will be thought of in much the same way.
The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family from Hidden Household Dangers is written in simple English and is aimed squarely at the layman. No technical or scientific knowledge is needed to go about ridding a home of toxins, and the solutions in the book do not require large expenditures of cash either. Dr. Wentz has prescribed solutions that are simple to adapt to almost any living space.
