Cleaning products as bad for lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day, scientists warn!
On February 16, 2018, a European Lung Health Study was published in the peer reviewed, American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. This study is garnering tremendous attention around the world. Read the report.
This ground-breaking, 20-year study evaluated 6,230 women and men in Europe measuring the long-term impact of using home cleaning products that contain ammonia, chlorine bleach, and quaternary ammonium compounds. The study focused on lung health and breathing capacity.
The study concluded that long-term respiratory health is significantly impaired after using cleaning products containing these chemicals. In fact, among women, the study showed that the accelerated lung function decline was comparable to the effects of smoking a pack of cigarettes every day for 20 years! That’s 146,000 cigarettes!
Remember, anytime you bring toxic chemicals into your home, you put everyone at risk.
Why should we settle for toxic products when we have a choice with what we buy and the companies we support.
