* The association says April but in places such as Colorado, it's more like Memorial Day!

Expert microbiologist Dr. Myron Wentz, author of Healthy Home, provides the following  
5 tips on how to keep toxins out of your house:

1)       Take your shoes off before entering your home. We walk around unwittingly in car oil, pesticides, animal waste and toxins.
 
2)       Non-stick pots and pans release potential hazardous fumes and particles into the air such as toxic gases, carcinogens and global pollutants. Try using a well-seasoned cast iron skillet instead.
 
3)       “Wrinkle free” sheets can expose you to the chemical PFC (perfluorochemcials) and is linked to reproductive and development toxicity, as well as cancers of the bladder and liver.  Try using natural alternatives like cotton or linen.
 
4) Fluorescent light bulbs will make you feel drained. They contain a toxic gas known as mercury vapor. Instead try purchasing regular incandescent light bulbs.
 
5)       Electrical appliances create EMFs (electromagnetic fields) which are similar to those found under power lines that were linked to cancer clusters.  Make sure you unplug your appliances when they are not being used.
