Why You Need an Air Purifier for Your Baby's Room

There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that fetuses or newborns exposed to chemicals and toxins in the air have an increased chance of developing diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other diseases later in life. In a process known as fetal programming, early exposure to toxic substances can affect genes that make children more susceptible to disease as they grow older.

In addition, recent studies now suggest a strong link between the development of asthma and other respiratory illnesses in children and high exposure to common household chemicals (e.g., disinfectants, detergents, bleach, window cleaners, oven cleaners) during pregnancy or shortly after birth. These and other studies have led researchers to conclude that the timing of the toxic exposure is as important in the development of disease as the actual level of toxins that a person is exposed to, and that limiting early exposure is a critical part of maintaining an infant's health into adulthood.

FACT: According to the Harvard School of Public Health, as many as 11% of infant deaths
in the US may be a result of microscopic pollutants in the air

The Test Your Nest study conducted by WECF delivered more bad news. Scientists tested the air quality in babies' bedrooms across Europe, and found that a high proportion of them contained harmful chemicals over established safety limits (e.g., from cleansers, home heating systems, fresh paint, off-gassing from new furniture and other sources). This is particularly alarming in light of the fact that safety guidelines are established for healthy adults, with newborns and infants being far more susceptible to the toxic/carcinogenic effects of the same pollutants than their parents are. Clearly, detoxifying your home and placing an air purifier in the nursery should be careful considerations in preparing for your baby's arrival.

FACT: Over 40% of baby rooms tested in Europe contained formaldehyde and VOC levels over established government safety guidelines
