Great basic overview of what is toxic in home environment and what the alternatives are. Debra Lynn Dadd's searchable blog is even more useful. This is a great place to start for anyone who wants to have better health. It is a must for anyone who is sensitive or allergic to more than a few things, also anyone who will have children, or who has difficult children, or anyone who is suspecting environmental illness.
A through look at dangerous chemicals commonly found in homes and good, safe alternatives. Covers everything: cleaning products, personal care products, consumer goods, building materials, house plants. If you've ever wondered about those ingredients in your shampoo with names you can't pronounce, this is the book for you.
There is only so much you can protect your family from before becoming a complete shut-in. This book is a really informative (and frightening) overview of what's in everything from dog food to baby toys.
This is a good introduction to the whole topic of what is really in the products we use everyday. I think I read a more updated version, but I can't find it here.
Very enllightening as to how to keep your family saver in our polluted world.
