Environmental Home Makeover (Episode #106)

KQED Life: Fri, Jun 7, 2013 -- 1:00 PM

Many of us think of our homes as safe havens, but you may be surprised to learn how many toxins are hiding in common household products. In this episode of EcoSense for Living, we discover potentially harmful chemical ingredients in and around our homes and do a makeover inside our chemical-laden cabinets. Environmental experts including Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Dr. Andrew Weil, Ken Cook and Laurie David explain why harmful ingredients are in our products, how we can avoid or replace them, and what actions we can take to make sure we have a "Home, Safe Home."
