The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family From Hidden Household Dangers


The safest plastics to use (and reuse) 
are denoted with the number 5.

Even a week of getting two to three hours less than the optimum amount of sleep needed each night seriously undermines mood, alertness, and performance.

Fluoride is poisonous, and, ironically, ingesting too much 
fluoride can actually damage the tooth enamel in young children.

Dave Wentz, recently named by Forbes.com as "One of America's Most Powerful CEOs 40 and Under" and his father, Dr. Myron Wentz, who holds a Ph.D. in microbiology and developed the first commercially available diagnostic test for the Epstein-Barr virus, have teamed up to write the fascinating book The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family from Hidden Household Dangers.

I found this book to be absolutely fascinating. As moms, we are responsible for ensuring the safety of our homes for our families and friends, and this book does an excellent job of describing what is and is not harmful, and what we can do about it.

Each section in the book consists of 2 or 3 chapters which cover a separate area of the home - bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living areas, garage, and yard. The chapters begin with a quiz to asses the hidden dangers in that particular area of the home, and each section ends with a checklist of Simple Solutions to make your home a safer place for your family.

Sprinkled throughout the book, you'll find cute and informative cartoons, "Cellular Truths" and "Ask the Scientist" boxes from Dr. Wentz that offer descriptions of what is happening on a fundamental level, as well as links to the book's Web site, which offer more detailed information to help you create a personalized plan for creating a healthy home. (The book comes with a web code to unlock these free online resources.)

I've already begun to implement many of the "Simple Solutions" provided in the book, and have plans to implement many more. This book is definitely a keeper!
