TEASER TUESDAYS :
hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~
We're exposed to an astonishing number of chemicals every day, and we rarely think about the cumulative effects they might have on our health. When we stop to reflect on a particular product's ingredient panel, most of us shrug and assume, "It must be safe. They wouldn't sell it if it wasn't."
~ page 73 “The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family From Hidden Household Dangers" by Dr. Myron Wentz and Dave Wentz
About the Book (from Amazon):
InThe Healthy Home, a father and son--Dr. Myron Wentz, well-known microbiologist and founder of the USANA Corporation, and Dave Wentz, CEO of the USANA Corporation--take readers on a tour of a specific home for a look at the surprising health risks posed by the everyday products and behaviors of a modern family. Beginning in the bedroom and ending in the garage and backyard, readers learn about the degenerative effects of toxins in the home and receive simple solutions to help minimize exposure without foregoing convenience.
The Healthy Homeis not a comprehensive tome on modern health hazards; nor is it a treatise on eco-conscious living. Instead, the book focuses on the most important environment--the home--and the problems that can most easily be lessened or eliminated. Busy parents who suspect that they should be doing more to protect their family but don't know where to start will learn about practical changes they can make in the next fifteen minutes, fifteen days, or fifteen months to create a haven for healthier living.
I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi
