Believe it or not, scientists have been studying the anatomy of dust bunnies for years. The average sample can contain anything from insect fecal matter to fungal spores and other chemicals. Gross, right? Why Are They Dangerous? Household dust samples have been known to contain over 100 toxins. From car exhaust, to tobacco, fire retardants and herbicides they can carry just about anything. And when they get sucked into your HVAC system and are released into the air you breathe, this is why they can be so dangerous.
