Chinese drywall; silent toxins

The continuing saga of homeowners facing problems with Chinese drywall continued this week with a major update by USA Today.

For those that are unaware of the issue, drywall imported from and reportedly used in homes in Florida and other states, is being blamed for off-gassing that causes damage to a home’s electrical and heating components. The materials, which were imported after a building materials shortage caused by Gulf Coast rebuilding boom in 2004 and 2005, is also reported to give off a rotten egg odor. Some have reported that it smells a bit like fireworks, not surprising since sulfur is a core ingredient.
