In The Healthy Home , a father and son--Dr. Myron Wentz, well-known microbiologist and founder of the USANA Corporation, and Dave Wentz, CEO of the USANA Corporation--take readers on a tour of a specific home for a look at the surprising health risks posed by the everyday products and behaviors of a modern family. Beginning in the bedroom and ending in the garage and backyard, readers learn about the degenerative effects of toxins in the home and receive simple solutions to help minimize exposure without foregoing convenience.

The Healthy Home is not a comprehensive tome on modern health hazards; nor is it a treatise on eco-conscious living. Instead, the book focuses on the most important environment--the home--and the problems that can most easily be lessened or eliminated. Busy parents who suspect that they should be doing more to protect their family but don't know where to start will learn about practical changes they can make in the next fifteen minutes, fifteen days, or fifteen months to create a haven for healthier living.

The authors give valuable incite to the dangers of exposing ourselves to potent chemicals found in the products we use everyday. And ways we can use to limit our exposure. A read that is well worth your time.

Most of the information I have read elsewhere, often several times, so I would say it is factual. However, the information about the lymph system and what affects it, is new to me. Considering the rest of the book, that is probably a reasonable explanation.
