Choking on Air - Is Your Home a Health Risk?

I remember when we first started hearing the word “smog”. It was a cool-sounding word because it combined “smoke and fog”, except it wasn’t cool at all.

I remember images of brown haze looming over some city skyline - it was like an invitation to not breathe. But what were you to do? Go around in a gas mask? So the cities got smarter, the factories got cleaner, cars got cleaner, and we stayed inside a bit more. “A lot safer inside!” we all thought.

How wrong.

I don’t mean to be a downer, but the EPA reports that “indoor air” isn’t all that great. In fact, it’s WORSE than outdoor air if you can believe that.  But what are you supposed to do about breathing?
