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.
Join us in this webinar as we learn how the following can negatively affect our health:
- Dirty electricity
- Geopathic stress
- Cleaning products
- Smart meters
- Fluorescent lights
- Formaldehyde from plywood
- Flame-retardant furniture
- Microwave ovens
- Radioactivity from granite and quartz
Please note that you will be asked to enter your email address at the 30-minute mark to finish viewing the video.
About Alex Stadtner BS MS
After college he worked for two years as a Sustainability Manager at Antioch College, before moving to New Hampshire to earn an MS in Resource Management & Administration at Antioch New England.
After graduate school, he worked with green-building consulting pioneers at the Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems in Austin, and then a Portland-based company specializing in third-party building rating systems, especially LEED.
Since then Alex has completed numerous environmental testing inspection courses to broaden his knowledge of the industry and bridge the gap between environmental science and building science. You can find out more about Healthy Building Science at www.healthybuildingscience.com
