I just read the asthma and allergies information in this site, about common environmental allergies in kids and I wanted to this information with you:
An EPA report, stated that indoor air pollution is one of the nation's most important environmental health problems. According to the EPA most homes have airborne concentrations of hazardous chemicals that are two to five times higher indoors than outdoors.(1)
This is my own experience:
My 4 year old daughter used to cough without any reason, doctors said it was allergies...I started trying to find a real reason for the cough and I noticed that after she took her tub, she started coughing, well, the baby body wash that I used on her (from a very well known brand) contains some ingredients that can cause allergies and asthma attacks, I was shocked!, I changed all her baby products and my house cleaning products to safer, eco friendly and better ones, the cough is gone!.
