Allergies and Asthma

The Problem...
Airborne allergens, like dust mites, dirt, and irritants cause the body to react with congestion, difficulty breathing, and headaches. Prescribed medications only treat the symptoms of allergies and asthma linked to indoor pollution they do nothing to help eliminate the source of the problem!

The Enviromental Protection Agency

EPA studies of human exposure to pollutants indicate that indoor levels of many pollutants may be 2 - 5 times and occasionally more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels.77

Christine Whitman, EPA Administrator,
"Indoor Air Quality" May 8, 2001

The EPA has identified over 800 different pollutants in indoor air samples. Why is indoor air pollution so bad?
