How to Reduce Outgassing of VOCs in Your Home

Low and no VOC products—including paints, adhesives, particle board—are now available that contain little or none of these harmful gases. Watch this video to find out more.

    We have a new tv(panasonic viera). It smells very toxic. Reminds me of the smell of a house that has just burned down. How can these corporations get away with this crap?!! The products used to manufacture these should be illegal. I don’t want cancer to accompany my television habits.
