To the Editor:
Volatile organic compounds are gasses emitted from stuff. When you drink out of a plastic bottle, you squeeze said bottle, and the VOCs flow.
[If you] want to stay healthy this summer, don't use your air conditioning. This is the number one highest VOC nightmare. You would literally choke if you read all the implications, and I recommend that you do, especially if you are sharing with kids or pets.
Look at what is in your hand. If it is plastics, aluminum, painted, made in China, look at it twice before you eat it, and you will notice your health improves instantly.
