Every day we come into contact with hundreds of chemicals, only a fraction of which have been thoroughly tested for safety. These chemicals enter our homes on the soles of our shoes, in the personal care and household products we use, and in the furnishings we buy. Some of these chemicals have been associated with cancer and other health effects.
