These are the harrowing yet inspiring memoirs of a woman who refused to be another industry statistic: the story of how Non-Toxic Home came to fruition.
This book is a warning to all who read it: failure to question "the experts" in a given field can have catastrophic repercussions.
For 30 years, Leanna trusted her health to the experts: doctors, nurses, governmental regulating agencies, and so on. Heeding doctor's advice, she took the recommended pharmaceuticals, resulting in years of taking over 75 pills per day. Trusting industry regulators, she slept on latex mattresses, breathed in noxious carpet VOCs, carried her cell phone with her everywhere, and used fragranced personal care products.
It nearly killed her.
Determined to turn her health around despite living in moldy apartments, struggling to breathe in smoky rentals, and fleeing exposures to toxic natural rubber latex, these memoirs share the trials and tribulations of a life of battling chronic illness, failed by a system that ignores root causes in the interest of corporate profit.
Heed this warning. It could happen to you.
