Environmentally friendly/low VOC paint - does it matter?

We are about to redecorate our house. The colours I like are little greene but its more pricey that dulux. Is Dulux ecosure really that much better than standard Dulux from a health perspective (Ive read that VOCs get released over years as well as during painting)? I was tempted by Ecos paint (now lakeland ) but read a terrible review. Basically is the extra cost worth it? And if so which water based paints are the best/solid?

The more pricey ones are really worth it as the other ones do release compounds that end up in our lungs. I just cannot paint with the other ones now.
