What can be more important than the health of your family? Healthy Home Healthy Family is a compilation of ten years of research. Within its pages you will discover how your home can affect your family’s health and, most importantly, what you can do about it.
In the past twenty years childhood allergies and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder have increased by 400%, one in four children have asthma, breast cancer has more than doubled since the 1960s, the age of puberty is dramatically declining, sperm count has dropped by 50% and IVF is where you go to have children. Could these conditions be linked to our homes? Building Biologists certainly think so!
Not just content to identify 21st Century disease – and comprehensively detail how our living spaces impact our health – Ms Bijlsma gives hot tips to minimise the impact the domestic environment has on our health. There is a special section for pregnant women and those with breast cancer. She also provides the reader with comprehensive and practical checklists to assess the health of their home.
