Description
The average American spends 21 hours a day indoors, and the quality of these spaces deeply affects our health and productivity. Did you know a child’s main exposure to neurotoxic flame retardants comes from household dust, or that average office and school CO2 levels can reduce cognition by 75%? This panel highlights the evidence-based health effects from typical interiors, and does a deep dive into how to cost-effectively design for health.
