The average American spends 65 percent of his or her time at home, says John Spengler of the Harvard School of Public Health. Other experts put the amount of time at 90%. This means that for the majority of our days - and of our lives -- we're spending our time in toxic environments. In fact, according to the EPA, toxic pollution inside the home is an average 2-5 times higher than outside, and in some homes up to 100 times!
The most recent study, led by researchers with the Silent Spring Institute, found that, on average, dust in homes contained 26 different toxic compounds and the air contained 19 different compounds.
Of these, five dangerous toxins in particular tend to appear most often in homes -- and are found in products that many people consider perfectly safe!
These toxins have been implicated in disrupting the endocrine system -- meaning they can be wreaking havoc on women and men's hormones.
