It often starts when someone retires, says Jeff May. All of a sudden, the retiree is spending a lot more time in his home—the home he has lived in for years—but he finds he can’t breathe. He’s wheezing and sneezing and uncomfortable all the time.

Because the retiree will be spending more time in a house where something is making their asthma or allergies worse. Jeffrey May, author of "My House Is Killing Me," says that your house may be making you sick, which may sound strange.

Where Pollution Is Hiding InsideMay, who knows a lot about the risks of mold and other home pollutants, says, "The whole idea of indoor pollution is pretty new." "For a long time, we were interested in what was going on in the world around our homes."
