During pre-pregnancy what happens with in the body’s and hormone systems of prospective parents sets the stage for successful conception and a healthy outcome. More and more scientific reports point to the ill effects of exposure to chemicals and environmental toxins to the endocrine system of humans. Unfortunately, most prospective parents are blissfully unaware, one of the key sources of these pollutants is domestic house paint. The vast majority of readily available commercial paint products are not just pretty but actually pretty awful when it comes to the air we breathe, what we absorb and were we live.
Governments have slowly begun to address this issue by tightening regulations as to paint content but it is a far from where it needs to be. Standards vary wildly and worse still allow unscrupulous companies to “greenwash” their products. This is a travesty for people actually trying to make the right choices when it comes to paint product selection.
Once the pregnancy is in place expectant parents go to huge lengths to ensure the inside of Mum to be, remains safe and free from risk. However, the nesting urge to decorate baby’s first space, drive many into the land of unsafe paint products.
Ignorance is not bliss, it is import to understanding the damaging effect of decorating your home with paint products that are not environmentally and human friendly.
