Allergy-Free Living is the first guide to creating a healthy, non-toxic home and lifestyle. Without knowing it, we are often causing or exaggerating conditions such as asthma and ezcema by the way we live our lives: dust and mould, family pets, indoor plants and seemingly harmless everyday products, such as cleaning products, can all trigger allergic reactions. Room by room and topic by topic, Allergy-Free Living explores the issues and provides a range of practical, easy-to-implement solutions as well as expert hints and quick-reference summaries. Each allergic problem has been set in its medical context, with symptoms, causes and solutions identified. With informative text and photographs, Allergy-Free Living is a revelatory and invaluable guide to just how simple and life-enhancing an allergen-free lifestyle can be. - Invaluable reference for sufferers from asthma, eczema, hay fever and other allergic conditions - Includes practical, medically endorsed advice for every room in the house, with ideas for making an allergen-free home look stylish and welcoming - An essential guide to non-toxic materials for home decoration and cleaning

From Library Journal:

As allergies increase in affluent countries (for instance, one in four adolescents in the United States has symptoms of asthma), several recent books have addressed the need for allergen-free interior environments; among them, this attractive, well-made, well-organized, and well-illustrated title stands out. In their introductory chapters, Howarth, a physician specializing in allergies, and medical writer Reid describe various types of allergies as well as symptoms and causes. They then turn their attention to the home, with chapters on cleaning, heating, floors and walls, furnishings, and fixtures. Ideal rooms are described in detail, while numerous sidebars highlight and condense key points. For each ideal room, these include "Changes To Make" and "Cleaning Timetable." This book is an excellent complement to Thomas Leo Ogren's Allergy-Free Gardening: A Revolutionary Approach to Landscape Planning (LJ 4/15/00) and Sylvia Goldfarb's Allergy Relief: Effective Natural Allergy Treatments (LJ 5/1/00).DCarol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg
