Our homes expose us to the hidden effects of gases and vapours. Many synthetic-based materials and toxic preservatives or treatments contribute to off-gassing with the result that indoor air is often more polluted than that outdoors. Modern homes are often sealed units that trap stale air and chemical vapours inside until they reach concentrations that can cause bad health. Breathing ability can be impaired by off-gassing from synthetic materials. Breathing impairments, allergies and undiagnosed illnesses are affecting more and more people, and about one in seven people is seriously affected by the everyday levels of gas and dust found in the home.
Unhealthy materials and chemicals, such as cleaning agents and furniture finishes, are creating indoor pollutants causing problems to human health and to the planet. Air pollution causes 15% of lung cancer deaths, 20% of fatal heart disease, 25% respiratory infection deaths, and 60% of dementia cases. Indoor air can contain 900 different chemicals, particles and biological matter, and can be ten times more polluted than ambient air. Half of the body’s intake of air is inhaled in the home. Also, a recent study shows that scented candles, room diffusers and air fresheners may account for up to 40,000 deaths per annum in the UK.
