Asthma & Allergy Friendly Certification Program Available

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), in conjunction with the physician-led Allergy Standards Limited, has developed the first Asthma Friendly® product standards for items such as plush toys, pillows and other bedding, flooring, vacuum cleaners, and air filtration devices. Products certified under the program are less likely to expose asthma and allergy sufferers to allergenic materials or chemical irritants. Certified items also come with instructions for keeping them "asthma friendly." Stuffed animals, for instance, should be put in the freezer every four weeks and then washed to kill dust mites and their eggs. A list of certified products is available at http://www.asthmafriendly.com. Editor's Note: This article does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by The Healthy House Institute, and readers should perform their own due diligence.
