7 More Household Toxins You Should Banish from Your Home

Take control of your food and indoor air for a safer ambiance.



RODALE NEWS, EMMAUS, PA—Pollution is obvious when you see it belching out of factories and smokestacks, or even from the tailpipe of the car in front of you. But the sorry truth is, because of lax laws and many manufacturers' abandonment of the precautionary principle (making sure something is safe before introducing it to the general public), we now have to deal with a new kind of pollution, the kind that comes from seemingly innocent sources, such as candles and clean shirts. Chemicals you'd expect to be used in hazardous industrial processes are now commonly found in everyday household products like cleaners, furniture, cookware, and candles.

Harmful chemicals even lurk inside the food we eat. The good news, as we reported in 5 Household Toxins You Should Banish from Your Home, is that relatively simple, everyday choices can drastically cut down on your family's exposure levels.

Here are 7 Household toxins you can easily evict from your home:

Nonstick kitchenware

Roundup

Vinyl

VOCs

Flame retardants

BPA

Dry-cleaned clothing
