Every year more than 500 people die in Sweden alone from the poor indoor air; most of them poisoned by radon. The majority of these 500 people smoke, the combination of tobacco smoke and radon is deadly. The number of people suffering from asthma and allergies is rapidly increasing. Researchers believe that the indoor environment is a major factor behind this.
In Northern Europe, and in most parts of North America, we spend 90 percent of our time indoors. Despite that, almost all money going into research is spent on the outdoor environment. The indoor environment should be just as important – if not more important. This book is written for everybody who wants healthy indoor air. It provides you with information and facts about how to create a good indoor environment. And why it is so important.
