Most people don’t think of their homes as a dangerous place, but a new book, The Healthy Home (Vanguard Press, 2011, U.S. $21.99), looks to educate readers about the hidden hazards hiding under our noises. These dangers aren’t sharp edges, or crawly creatures, but rather, hidden toxins in every room—from the bedroom and bathroom, to the kitchen and garage. Dave Wentz co-wrote the book with his microbiologist father, Dr. Myron Wentz. The Healthy Home supplies readers with information on what health risks may live in a home. Guiding the readers through room by room, the book can help readers learn about the negative effects of common toxins and receive simple solutions. Available now at amazon.com
