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.

Meet the Author

After earning a PhD in microbiology with a specialty in immunology from the University of Utah, Dr. Myron Wentz founded Gull Laboratories, where he developed the first commercially available diagnostic test kit for the Epstein-Barr virus. Dr. Wentz then launched USANA Health Sciences in 1992. Dr. Wentz's greatest efforts are now spent on personal research and humanitarian work. In June 2007, he was honored with the Albert Einstein Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Life Sciences from Global Capital Associates.

As the son of a renowned health scientist, Dave Wentz learned early on about the impacts of nutrition, lifestyle choices, and the environment on human health. After graduating with a degree in bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego, he joined his father, Dr. Myron Wentz, to establish USANA Health Sciences, a state-of-the art manufacturer of health products. Dave and Myron live in Salt Lake City, Utah.
