It is often repeated: smoking kills. Imagine that cleaning up would be just as toxic. In any case, it is the result of a Norwegian study which shows that the use of certain household products is harmful for our lungs …
Basically, what’s the point of getting ready for the job if it is also to put one’s health at risk? The argument is all for the laziest of our readers. And they can now rely on a study conducted by Norwegian researchers who proved that the use of certain chemicals was even more harmful than smoking.
These findings were published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. It has been shown that regular use of maintenance sprays is equivalent to smoking 20 cigarettes – the equivalent of one pack – per day over a period of 10 to 20 years!
Significant decrease in respiratory capacity
In detail, over the years, the study shows a significant decrease in respiratory capacity, particularly in women: the “forced expiratory volume per second” would decrease by 3.6 milliliters per year for those who perform housework and 3.9 ml per year for those who officiate as housekeepers. Look for the error: On the contrary, no noticeable side effects have been detected in men.
This decrease in lung function is the result – according to scientists – of the irritation caused by most of these chemical sprays in question. In short, researchers advise to opt for natural solutions. LCI offers a variety of recipes (above) to reproduce at home. To your utensils!
