At Building Biology we create beautiful, natural homes and workplaces to support your mind, body and spirit. The materials we use to build with, the cleaning products we choose, all contribute to potential health effects as well as impacting the planet as a whole.
All around us we have:
- Volatile organic compound emissions from fabrics and the varnishes we use
- Lack of ventilation that results in mould and ongoing respiratory problems
- Electric blankets, mobile phones, fridges, can all cause long term exposure to electromagnetic fields and wireless radiation. Toxicity: from chemical compounds in toothpastes, shampoo, soaps etc.
Toxicity builds up in the body – signs include headaches, skin rashes, sleeplessness, sore eyes, runny nose, sore throat, stomach aches etc. Unchecked or misdiagnosed, these ailments can progress into more serious problems like liver damage, kidney damage and cancer.
