We are not just what we digest. But also a product of where we live.

Harvard School of Public Health has a study that shows:

Low-income housing residents who live in ‘green’ buildings that are built with eco-friendly materials and energy-efficient features appear to have fewer ‘sick building’ symptoms than residents of traditionally constructed low-income housing, according to a new study. Asthma outcomes — hospitalizations, attacks, and missed school days due to asthma — were also significantly lower for children living in the green buildings.

What you can do to be greener and healthier?

  • Water filters. Especially in shower as we inhale more than we drink.
  • Air filters. Walter Crinnion ND the environmental guru we should listen to recommends IQ Air. so that’s what I now have.
