Health Hazards in Living Rooms
Dr Oz said that carpet is what worries him in living rooms. Wall to wall carpets often have fungus, mold and pollen. In addition, formaldehyde can be released by carpets and formaldehyde is a toxic gas which can be dangerous especially to kids and children who are close to the ground. NASA found that Spider Plants and Ferns are great at cleaning the air because the plant’s foliage and roots can absorb carbon monoxide and formaldehyde, and remove them from our systems and homes.
Health Hazards in Kitchens
Dr Oz said that there are hazards in our kitchens which can increase diseases and complications. For example, did you know that you should never store potatoes or onion in the refrigerator? If you put potatoes and onions in the fridge, they get more sugary, and then when you heat them up, it turns into a chemical which may contribute towards getting Cancer. Also, meat should not be stored on the top shelf in the refrigerator, because it can drip juice onto shelves underneath. Lastly, eggs should not be stored on the door because the refrigerator door varies the most in temperature because people open the door all the time. Plus, other chemicals can drop onto the eggs if you store them on the fridge door, and egg shells are porous – so if you spill juice from raw meat, it can be very bad for you.
Health Hazards in Bedroom
Dr Oz said that if you tuck your top bed sheet in tightly, you can get tendinitis in your ankles or other leg pain – so loosen your top sheet before you get into bed.
