Environmental Threats in the Home

When most people think about environmental threats, they think about air and water pollution, or on-the-job exposures to hazardous chemicals. But don’t forget that your environment includes your home; in fact, you probably spend more time there than anywhere else. So when you’re trying to get pregnant, don’t neglect to ensure that the house you live in is safe, too. To minimize exposure to possibly hazardous chemicals, consider switching to “green” cleaning products, “natural” cosmetics, and non-plastic food storage containers and utensils.
