Recommended Books (we sell many of these at the ecofitter store):
1) 1995, Anderson, Nina; Your Health and Your House: A Resource Guide (Paperback) - still probably the best overall resource, even though we have newer technologies added to our environment. By used as a good starting point.
2) 2003; Hobbs, Angela; The Sick House Survival Guide; Simple Steps to a Healthier Home, ; New Society Publishers - the BEST reference for anyone thinking that they may be ill from there environment. Very practical - not much has changed since 2003!

4) 2010; Boyd, David R.; Dodging the Toxic Bullet; how to protect yourself from everyday environmental health hazards, Greystone Books, Vancouver Canada - a Canadian book, very thorough, accurate and well written; I would recommend this to everyone!
