Environmental Health In Housing

Children's Environmental Health

Children are exposed to environmental threats every day - often in their homes, schools and child cares. Protecting their health is a priority.

Did you know that most people spend over 90% of their time indoors? Learn tips to protect your family from mold, carbon monoxide, wood smoke, asthma and allergies, lead, mercury, pesticides and a list of others. Here are several easy to access checklists to help you protect your home and family. You will also find resources to help you save energy, save money and make your home more environmentally-friendly.

America’s Children and the Environment is an EPA report that presents key information on environmental stressors that can affect children’s health. In January 2013, EPA released an updated third edition of this report (ACE3) that shows the status and trends of:

  • Environments and contaminants (contaminants in air, water, food, and soil and other environmental conditions)
  • Bio monitoring (chemicals measured in the bodies of mothers and children)

 Environmental Health Chat is a new podcast series launched by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences that will explore how environmental exposures affect our health. Each short episode highlights ways researchers work in partnership with community groups to understand and address environmental health issues. Featured topics include, radon, mercury, and school siting.

Federal agencies recently unveiled Advancing Healthy Housing - A Strategy for Action, which encourages federal agencies to take preemptive actions that will help reduce the number of American homes with health and safety hazards.

To maintain a healthy home, occupants should keep it dry, clean, well-ventilated, free from contaminants, pest-free, safe and well-maintained. Good home maintenance can act to reduce allergens, prevent illness.

We recommend taking  look at the Nikken wellness home  and educating ourselves about the quality of water we drink and bathe in (Nikken Pimag Water Filters), the Air we breathe in the home (Nikken Kenko Air Purifier 1441), the quality of sleep (Nikken Kenko Magnetic Sleep Systems), and the quality and nature of the food we eat (Nikken Whole Food Nutrition).

 Let Us Protect our  children where they live, learn & play
