Do You Know the Chemicals in Your Home? Office? Yard?


Livingston, NJ, October 09, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The updated and revised A Consumer’s Dictionary Of Household, Yard And Office Chemicals: Complete Information About Harmful and Desirable Chemicals Found in Everyday Home Products, Yard Poisons, and Office Polluters by Ruth Winter, MS, just released by ASJA Books, has the answers.

The greatest exposure to many toxic chemicals takes place in our own homes, according to studies conducted by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Winter lists the new chemicals and materials on the market that may react adversely with one or more of the thousands already available. For example:

• Household products including cleansers, paints, air fresheners, hobby supplies, dry cleaned clothing, aerosol sprays, adhesives that contain formaldehyde and fabric additives.

• Office chemicals including those from copying machines, laser printers, signature machines, blue print copiers, fresh newsprint, and marking pencils.

• Yard chemicals you can buy range widely in toxicity and potential effects. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has found that home owners already use four to eight times as many chemical pesticides per acre as farmers, and the disparity is widening.

• Drugs in our water are a surprising and increasing alarming problem. Up to 90 percent of many prescription drugs that humans consume ultimately find their way into sewage treatment plants which are not equipped to screen for pharmaceuticals.

A Consumer’s Dictionary Of Household, Yard And Office Chemicals: Complete Information About Harmful and Desirable Chemicals Found in Everyday Home Products, Yard Poisons, and Office Polluters identifies the common products and provides information about how to recognize and prevent exposure to troublesome chemicals.
