“There’s a growing trend in research,” says Kathleen Rogers, president of the Earth Day Network—an environmental group based in Washington, D.C.—“that shows that environmental toxins that damage your health may be present at higher levels in the home than outside on the street.” She recommends that all parents:
Ensure that homes have an effective, well-maintained ventilation system.
Avoid smoking anywhere near a child.
Reduce the use of unnecessary chemicals.
Introduce live, growing plants to the home.
Vacuum floors and mattresses regularly.
