How is your air quality at home?

Human beings function best in the suroundings where they lived for thousand of years....the natural world. Do we know how it feels to breath fresh air, from a mountain stream, or an open forest?

We are indoors 90 percent of our time. More then 65 percent of that time is spent at home. This can mean exposure to very high levels of indoor air polution. Daily exposure to indoor pollution can be from two to five times higher sometimes as much as 100 times higher than outdoor polution!

Carpeting, furniture,paint, cleaning products, building materials paneling and glues can emit chemical vapors. Dust, pet dander, pollen,and odors are typically in houshold air. Mold and mildew and dust mites may be present. Even gasses such as radon, carbon monoxide are found in measurable quantities in many homes.
As we know food, water and sleep are all very important, but air is in most immediate need. It's something we use several times a minute! What could be more worthwhile then improving our air quality?
