Even if you spend a lot of time indoors, you could be hosting indoor air pollution, especially if you're using commercial air fresheners (and even candles). One of the toxic chemical culprits is called Phthalates. According to this report, Clearing the Air - Hidden Hazards of Air Fresheners (September 2007 Natural Resources Defense Council)...
"Of all the products in the home, clean-smelling air fresheners seem to pose little risk. But the fresh scent of air fresheners may mask a health threat—chemicals called phthalates (pronounced thal-ates) that can cause hormonal abnormalities, birth defects, and reproductive problems. NRDC’s independent testing discovered phthalates in 86 percent (12 of 14) of air freshener products tested, including those marketed as “all-natural” or “unscented”—and none of the products we tested listed phthalates on their labels." (See page vi for the 14 air fresheners tested)
