Health-Wise Homes was established in October 2002. But, the concept goes back many years prior to that. In 1975 I built my first home. At that time not many people had heard of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), and the Gulf War Syndrome was twenty years in the future. Nobody was building homes for people with severe allergies or chemical sensitivities. The emphasis was placed on looks, with little or no consideration towards health. Indoor air quality was basically ignored. People became sick but answers were not forthcoming.
