Overview

In The Healthy Home, a father and son—Dr. Myron Wentz, well-known microbiologist and founder of the USANA Corporation, and Dave Wentz, CEO of the USANA Corporation—take readers on a tour of a specific home for a look at the surprising health risks posed by the everyday products and behaviors of a modern family. Beginning in the bedroom and ending in the garage and backyard, readers learn about the degenerative effects of toxins in the home and receive simple solutions to help minimize exposure without foregoing convenience.

The Healthy Home is not a comprehensive tome on modern health hazards; nor is it a treatise on eco-conscious living. Instead, the book focuses on the most important environment—the home—and the problems that can most easily be lessened or eliminated. Busy parents who suspect that they should be doing more to protect their family but don't know where to start will learn about practical changes they can make in the next fifteen minutes, fifteen days, or fifteen months to create a haven for healthier living.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Dave and Dr. Wentz have conspired to create an innovative and imaginative approach to living simply. As a physician, I would offer one bit of advice: heed the constructs, sentiments, and words written in this book. We cannot wait for the scientific method to verify the claims made. As individuals we must act now! We should follow our intuition and adhere to The Healthy Home.”
—Peter W. Rugg, M.D., FACEP

The Healthy Home is an amazing revelation of the ‘truths’ on everyday products that parents use for their children. This book will empower parents to take measures to protect their children from toxins that may threaten the health of our future generations.”
—Christine Wood, M.D., pediatrician and author of How to Get Kids to Eat Great & Love It

“I have met few individuals more generous, more approachable, and more caring than Dr. Wentz. He believes in true health and is seeking to discover its secrets with a passion that is as spiritual as it is scientific. In this brilliant collaboration with his son, Dave, we are able to witness the passage and expansion of simple truths from generation to generation.”
—Denis Waitley, Ph.D., bestselling author of The Psychology of Winning

The Healthy Home is simply brilliant! This will totally alter the way you look at the home you live in. If you want to protect the health of your family, you simply must read this book.”
—Robert G. Allen, New York Times bestselling author

The Healthy Home is full of practical and accessible health advice that will help you get a good night’s sleep, choose the right household cleaners, and figure out what products to avoid.”

Dr. Wentz then launched USANA Health Sciences in 1992. Dr. Wentz's greatest efforts are now spent on personal research and humanitarian work.

Don't download the Nook version -you will not be able to read it! I'm half way through and so far, most of the content is just preachy, doesn't offer many details,or much new information from what is already out there.
