Open Your Windows!

According to the US EPA, levels of pollutants in indoor air can be from two to more than 100 times higher than outdoors. This indoor pollution is largely due to volatile organic compounds that evaporate from home decorating and cleaning products. According to a study in New Scientist in 1999, in homes where air fresheners and aerosol sprays and were frequently used, mothers experienced a 25 percent increase in reported headaches and were 19 percent more likely to suffer from depression, and infants under six months of age experienced a 30 percent increase in ear infections and had a 22 percent higher chance of diarrhea. This does not sit well with me at all. If the weather agrees, open your windows! Get these chemicals out of your homes! Some fresh-cut flowers can easily create a wonderful fragrence throughout any room.
