Full Disclosure Required
Full Disclosure Required: a Strategy to Prevent Asthma Through Building Product Selection, released by the Healthy Building Network on December 11, 2013, is an exhaustive investigation of asthma-causing chemicals in building materials. The report identifies commonly used interior building materials that are likely to contain chemicals that cause the onset of asthma. It examines emerging evidence of how early childhood exposures to these chemicals are of particular concern. It looks at how existing indoor air quality programs and green building rating systems do not yet address this growing public health crisis. And it provides clear strategies for preventing building occupant exposures through product disclosure and green chemistry.
