House dust was once 99% skin cells. Today a significant percentage of house dust—dust found in the home, classrooms, daycare, employment, retail and other locations frequented by human beings—contains laboratory manufactured chemicals that never existed in nature before and we're all affected by these chemicals, everyday. Today it rains endocrine disrupting bisphenol A and the chemical is also in our dust, along with hundreds and in fact 1000s of additional chemicals. Children, being closer to the ground, ingest 12 times the amount of these chemicals that adults ingest by virtue of that closeness to ground alone. Learn about the primary chemicals, where they originate, their effects on the human body and how to mitigate exposure.

Contains over 200 peer reviewed reports across 224 pages. We’re surrounded by chemicals all day, all the time, and our bodies are literally attacked all day, every day—not just by all sorts of bacteria but by the invisible environmental chemicals we all come into contact with. From automotive exhaust, perfumes, colognes and soaps, the unseen industrial pollution in the air we breathe, the indoor dust we’re constantly surrounded by and even the food we eat—these are all contaminated with various neurotoxins, obesogens, mutagens, genotoxins, endocrine disruptors and carcinogens from flame retardants, Bispehnol analogues (A,B,S,F,AF), Pharmaceutical And Personal Care breakdown products and transformation products, and 100s of other massively produced chemicals that are now environmentally ubiquitous.The peer review is clear, even the food is contaminated with industrial chemicals like Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers and Persistent Organic Pollutants. Yet we all have, we hope, an active and robust immune system, an effective internal supply of antioxidants and other functional systems within our bodies that fight these attacks appropriately every moment of every day. If we didn’t we’d be sick all the time, or worse. That doesn’t mean these various 100s of chemicals won’t eventually make us sick, and some of us are more susceptible than others, so we should all be aware of them and work proactively to avoid contact and mitigate our exposures and that of our children. Here we fully explore this wide variety of chemicals, their effects on the human body and mitigation techniques.

Mixtures of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are present in indoor environments. Studies of the developmental effects of exposure to these chemicals in large prospective mother-child cohorts are required, with data on prenatal exposure and long-term follow-up of the children. We aimed to investigate the relationship between prenatal and childhood exposure to PBDEs and neurodevelopment at the age of six years. We determined the levels of PBDEs and other neurotoxicants in cord blood and dust collected from the homes of children for 246 families included in the PELAGIE mother-child cohort in France. Our findings are in agreement with those of four previous studies suggesting adverse cognitive outcomes among children associated with early-life exposure to penta-BDE mixtures, and provide new evidence for the potential neurotoxicity of BDE209. Several countries are in the process of banning the use of PBDE mixtures as flame-retardants. However, these compounds are likely to remain present in the environment for a long time to come.
