We interviewed Alex Stadtner, President and Senior Consultant of Healthy Building Science, about sick buildings and chronic illness. A variety of factors make our indoor environment 2-5x more toxic than our outdoor environment.

Given that many Americans spend as much as 90% of our lives indoors, it’s important to know how sick buildings contribute to chronic illnesses.
