In the last 75 years, 1000’s different chemicals have been introduced, with one study saying as much as 80,000. While some, may be safe for humans, others maybe not so much. In construction alone, you could make a huge list of chemicals that get used to making building material for new home designs, not to mention the chemicals that get used directly in building the homes themselves such as glues, finishes, and caulking. Since the energy crunch of the ’70s, builders have been tightening the homes to make them more energy efficient which, in turn, has made the problem worse. As contaminates get trapped inside of homes, people can get sick.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is believed to have worsened as more people are exposed to polluted indoor air. As people spend most of their time indoors, which is said to be as much as 90 percent. And, what’s more, the elderly, young children, and people with chronic illnesses get outdoor even less, which is the population that is most vulnerable to chemicals. Experts say that poor air quality leads to or accelerates allergies, asthma, respiratory illness, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other serious conditions.
While you can’t eliminate all chemicals in building a home, a log house does greatly reduce the number of chemicals that you and your family get exposed to. Log houses are made of natural wood.
