Toxins in the Home: Indoor Air Can Be Polluted Too

The Environmental Protection Agency says that the air inside your house could be more polluted — especially with lead, radon, and tobacco smoke — than the air outdoors. Guests talk about toxic dangers in common household products and in the very materials that make up your house.

Guests:

Richard Corsi, professor, of civil, architectural, and environmental engineering at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin

Paul Blanc, MD, author of How Everyday Products Make People Sick: Toxins at Home and in the Workplace; professor of medicine and chair of Occupational and Environmental Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco
