Description

This article is from the Children Allergies and Asthma FAQ, by Eileen Kupstas Soo kupstas@cs.unc.edu with numerous contributions by others.

15.0 Environmental Allergy Information


Bachman, Judy, _Allergy Environment Guidebook: New Hope & Help for
Living & Working Allergy-Free_, c. 1990, Putnam Publishing Group,
257 pages. Information on allergies, effects of stress, advice on
building, decorating, remodeling and otherwise coping with
allergies. More depth and detail than most books on environmental
allergies.


Aslett, Don, _Make Your House Do The Housework_, c. 1986 Writer's
Digest Books, 201 pages. Tells you how to design and decorate a
house so that it requires a minimum of cleaning and maintenance.


Consumer Reports, Oct 1992, reviews a number of air purifiers.
Friedrich C90 is the top-rated model. 512-225-2000 is the Friedrich
number. A mail-order provider is S and S Buying Service,
212-575-0210.


Consumer Reports, Feb 1993, reviews vacuum cleaners, including the
Nilfisk GS 90. They found it effective at filtering dust
particles. Suggested that the best solution for the severely
allergic may be to limit the use of carpeting.


The National Center for Environemental Health Strategies (NCEHS)
publishes a newsletter, runs a clearing house for sources of perfume
free products, distributes literature, and other related information.
(No current address; will try to find that.)
