    Recommended book: Healthy Home, Healthy Family: Is where you live affecting your health?

    Is your house making you sick?

    In the past 30 years, new cancer diagnoses almost tripled, hospital admissions for life-threatening allergic reactions have increased fourfold, breast cancer has doubled, male sperm count has halved, the age of puberty is declining, dementia has become synonymous with old age, environmental sensitivities are on the rise, and learning and behavioural disorders in children have skyrocketed. Could these conditions be linked to health hazards in our homes? YES!

    Beginning with the Four Dog Defense, Nicole explains the delay tactics employed by the chemical, pharmaceutical and telecommunication industries to keep their products in the marketplace and their links to the setting of regulations and exposure standards. Using the latest research (891 references), she explains how toxicants, allergens like mould, electromagnetic fields and drinking water pollutants in the built environment are associated with almost all chronic illnesses plaguing western countries. She describes why people with environmental sensitivities need to address mould, electromagnetic field and chemical exposures in their home, and the simple steps required to create a healthy, low allergy home. ¬ Now in its 3rd edition, this bestselling, hardback and full colour book, is your go-to-guide for environmental-related diseases. Available in Australia from Building Biology, Booktopia,
