Which wood products are safe for the home?
A new report finds that home furniture made with natural and sustainable materials has fewer health hazards than the products tested by a national environmental group.
The report from the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is a joint effort of CSPI and the Natural Resources Defense Council.CSPP’s report found that natural products like wood and cottonwood are less likely to contain asbestos, lead, cadmium, and other toxic metals.
But the report notes that the study only looked at products made in a laboratory setting.
“While some natural products have been shown to have high levels of toxic metals, none have been specifically linked to a home environment,” CSPP President Robert W. Kroll said in a statement.
“So while some products are more likely to pose a health risk than others, many are safer for people and the environment.”
The report also found that wood products with more natural ingredients are less hazardous.
“Many natural products are found in the environment as the result of the work of people who are doing their job,” said Kroll.
“It’s a very natural process.
And when we’re looking at wood, we’re trying to look at the health risks from a biological point of view, not just a physical one.”CSPi is a nonprofit environmental research and education organization that advocates for the conservation of the environment.
Its work has led to significant environmental improvements in the United States, according to its website.
“The health risks posed by these products are far from zero,” Kroll continued.
“In fact, they are very likely higher than the levels found in most of the natural products tested.”
The group recommends the following:The report is based on the results of a multi-year study of 6,000 home products and found that the wood products tested in the study were all safer than conventional wood products.
The report also says that most natural products that were tested are “safe for human consumption” and are not at risk of health problems due to their nature.
For example, the study found that pine trees and other trees are the safest for human health.
It also found products like maple and pine, which are considered “natural” for the purposes of the law, were “safe” for use in the home.
The researchers also found natural products were found to be more effective at fighting mold, while non-natural products were more likely in some cases to produce toxins.
“Wood products that are used for home renovation, renovation and replacement, or to build and decorate new homes are generally considered safer than natural products, and thus may be safer for the environment,” the report said.
“However, it is important to remember that a wide variety of materials can be used in homes, and therefore, any comparison between a home renovation project and a natural product is inherently subjective.”
The CSPi report also states that natural wood products do not contain pesticides or other chemicals that are harmful to humans.
“We believe that natural and environmentally sustainable materials can and should be used for the same purpose,” Krol said.
