Helpful Information and Articles

     IAQ & You           
  • Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is now more polluted than outdoor air, and we spend 90% of our time indoors.

  • Toxins we come in contact with every day store themselves in our fat cells, adding to the toxic load of the body. Eventually, the body becomes full and health issues arise. Many toxins can be avoided or reduced.

  • Phthalates, a plasticizer used in soaps, plastics, pop cans, perfume, scented dryer sheets, lotions and many other products is a “hormone mimicar”. It makes the body adjust hormone levels unnecessarily. The University of Rochester Medical Ctr. recently linked phthalates to abdominal obesity and insulin resistance in adult males. Reproductive problems were already linked to this chemical.

  • 100% of homes have mold. 50% of homes have a mold “problem” according to a 1994 Harvard study of 10,000 homes. The study found a 50-100% increase in respiratory symptoms in half the homes.

  • Asthma has increased 300% in the last 20 years according to a 1999 USA Today story.  Ozone is an Asthma trigger, and many ozone generators are sold as “air cleaners”.  Ozone is linked to acid rain as well.

  • Mayo Clinic reported in a 1999 study that nearly all chronic sinus infections were a result of mold.

  • Pesticides have a half life of 25 years. Pesticides and herbicides are easily tracked into the house on shoes and form strong bonds with synthetic materials such as carpet and clothing. They also attach themselves to dust particles and float all over your house.



EMFs & You   


  • Wiring in your home gives off Electric and Magnetic Field Exposure (EMFs), upsetting natural electrical signals, ion concentrations, and balance of your body.

  • Electric Field Exposure disturbs Stage 4 Sleep by reducing vital melatonin production at night, ultimately affecting your immune system.

  • Cell phones & wireless modems emit radiation in the low gigahertz frequency range (microwave). They release radiation continuously when turned on.

  • The EPA concluded in 1994 that EMFs should be considered a risk factor for childhood cancer.

  • Honey bees navigate by observing small changes in the Earth's magnetic field. New research suggests their sudden disappearance may be due to digital pulsed signals from cell phone towers. Bees hum frequency is 190-250 cycles per second, and digital cell signals pulse at 220 cycles per second, disorienting their flight.

  • Studies have shown that electric and magnetic fields contribute to chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, insomnia, depression, allergies, arthritis, restless leg syndrome and cancer, just to name a few.



Radon & You


  • Radon is EASY to test for and EASY to mitigate (fix). 

  • Mitigation is affordable and quick to install. 

  • Radon is a radio active gas that has no smell, taste, or color to let you know its present. Found in soil, water and air, it’s completely undetectable without testing!!! 

  • Radon comes from uranium and radium decay.  It causes physical and chemical DNA damage to the lungs 

  • Minnesota has the 3rd highest Radon levels in the nation – 1 in 3 homes has elevated levels! 

  • Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in the US among non-smokers, and the second leading cause among smokers.  Survival rates for lung cancer are only 15%. 

  • The EPA’s action level of 2.7 pCi/L (pico-curies per liter) is NOT a health based standard!!!  It’s based on 1970’s technology that was able to reduce Radon in homes contaminated with uranium mine tailings. 

  • The EPA clarified that levels below 2.7 pCi/L still pose a risk and advises the public to consider reducing levels to between 2 – 4 pCi/L 

  • Modern mitigation can more easily get your levels between 2-4 pCi/L. 

  • All types of homes have Radon. New, old, tight, drafty! Elevated levels have been found in all 50 states. 

  • Your neighbor’s level will NOT determine your level – testing is the ONLY way to know!!!
