The use of cleaning products increases the risk of lung problems, here’s why

Suara.com – A 20-year study revealed a link between the use of toxic cleaning products and a person’s risk of developing lung problems.

Researchers found people who worked as professional cleaners using spray cleaning products had as much lung damage as people who smoked 20 cigarettes a day.

This is thought to be due to chemicals in cleaning products that irritate the mucous membranes in the airways.

Professor Paul Morgan, Director of the Immune System at Cardiff University, advises everyone to use more scalable cleaning products.

Daily exposure to germs, house dust, and pollen activates the immune system, educating it to respond to foreign bodies without reacting to itself.

“When this fails, it puts the individual at risk of developing allergies and other illnesses later in life caused by a poor immune system,” he said.

Research also shows that children who grow up on farms have better immune systems than children in apartment environments without pets.

You should also know that there are toxic ingredients, such as polyethylene (a melted plastic) in lipstick, triclosan (a synthetic antibacterial linked to some cancers) in deodorants and methylisothiazolinone (a preservative linked to dermatitis) in shampoo.

Although we also cannot deny that we still need cleaning products for household hygiene. On the other hand, exposure to chemicals in cleaning products can be bad.

However, you can take steps to reduce your exposure to chemicals from these cleaning products, such as reducing the dosage.
