Your Call: Toxic chemicals lurking in your home
On the April 6th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our week long series on toxic chemicals by looking at what’s lurking in our homes.
From flame retardant furniture to cleaning supplies, our homes harbor countless chemicals. Due to gaps in US regulations, the health and environmental risks of thousands of chemicals remain unknown. What are the risks associated with common household products? How can we reduce toxins in our homes and the environment? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
