From Documentary Website:

“Home, sweet home.” Most people would say that they feel safest in the comfort of their own homes. The skies could open up and pour down acid rain, the smelters might be spewing clouds of ash and dust, a thick layer of vehicular emissions might blanket the cities, but we remain healthy and happy in our sheltered environments.

But, surprise, surprise. UP CLOSE AND TOXIC reveals that the great indoors is not as safe as we’ve been lulled into thinking. Toxicologists have found that the levels of most indoor air pollutants exceed those found outdoors – even in our most polluted cities. We know very little about the long term or cumulative effects of our indoor exposure. Cleaning products, pesticides, paint dust, lead particles in the carpet, plastic toys…UP CLOSE AND TOXIC provides an informative wake-up call in an entertaining manner, makes the sources of indoor pollution easy to understand, and provides tips for safer practices, materials, and cleaning agents.
