Do normal household chemicals get into our bodies?

“I think that people have the idea that pollution is this thing that exists outside our homes, it’s kind of floating around in the air and that once we get inside our home, we are safe from pollution.”

According to Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie, authors of Slow Death by Rubber Duck, we need to be just as concerned with what is floating around within our own four walls as we are with the pollution that occurs outside our homes. (As it turns out, the President’s Cancer Panel, agrees).

In this video, Smith and Bruce lock themselves in an average apartment for two days and expose themselves to all the chemicals you would likely find in your own home. Things like:

  • Mercury
  • Non-stick chemicals
  • Pthalates
  • Tricolsan
  • Bisphenol A (BPA)

The lads compare the blood and urine samples that were taken before and after the experiment to find out what has entered their systems and to what degree. Even they are shocked by the results.

Watch the video above to find out what happens.

Want to reduce your toxic load in the home? Here are some ideas.

This article shows how easy it is to eliminate BPA from your home too.
