Lately, I have been reading a lot of disturbing information about how to test
the air in your home. Most of the information is erroneous and will cause more problems than it will ever fix.
Testing the air in your home is not a do-it-yourself project for the weekender. All you will do is get false
data that can cause more harm to your family than good. My first question to you in a similar situation, would
you have an Optometrist operate and remove tonsils on you or children? We all know the answer to this
question. It is a definite no. So why would a person contact an on-line Marketer who only wants their money to
diagnose their family’s problem. Indoor Air Quality

Are They Real Air Testing Experts or Just Air Testing Con
Artists Out To Bilk Consumers?
Lately, there seems to be a lot of advertising on the Internet
for Air Testing of people's homes. Most of these companies have great advertising on their websites but are
they really worth the money the consumer is paying for their so-called Air Testing Services. If we look at one
of these sites, you will see a disclaimer they put in their reports for their air testing services after you
have paid them your hard-earned money. Internet Air Testing

Just How Much PCB is in the Food Supply?
In just a few years, between their creation in 1930 and when they were banned in the late 1970s, highly toxic
PCBs (also known as Polychlorinated biphenyls) were used in countless products and dumped into soil and water all
over the world. In the North America, the Monsanto company (the very same one that brought the world GMO crops) was
responsible for most of the PCB production – several million tons of it. While also used as an insulating oil and
lubricant, PCBs were also widely used as a pesticide. In one instance, PCB-laden sludge from another company was
given to local farmers as a fertilizer in an effort to get rid of it.
Unfortunately, the highly stable and
non-reactive characteristics that made PCBs useful to industry also makes them persistent in the environment. They
are also “lipophilic” (attracted to fats) and are very likely to bio-accumulate in any organism higher up the food
chain, such as meat animals or the people who consume them.
