These Common Household Items Are POISONING Us

Let’s face it – especially around the holiday season, we all go a little heavy on the scents.

Maybe your home has smelled like gingerbread or pine for weeks, thanks to scented candles and sprays.

But a top scientist is sounding an alarm you need to hear.

All of those fragrances could be POISONING your family!

In fact, 34 percent of Americans are already suffering the consequences.

And some of the side effects are serious enough to be considered “disabling.”

It’s America’s invisible epidemic.

Here’s what you need to know to keep yourself and your loved ones safe…

A new study, published in Air Quality, Atmosphere, and Health, shows that a shocking 34 percent of Americans are currently suffering adverse effects from exposure to a whole host of scented products.

The study, led by Professor Anne Steinemann, examined the impact that common scented products had on the health of American adults.

And the results were so alarming that Steinemann, an internationally respected expert on environmental pollutants, declared the issue an “epidemic”.

She found that 34 percent of Americans are already suffering from our constant exposure to the chemicals in scented items like candles, colognes, and cleaning products.

These adverse effects range from dizziness, rashes, and nausea to gastrointestinal issues, seizures, swollen lymph glands, fever, anaphylaxis, irregular heartbeat, and more!

Most commonly, however, the exposure to toxic fragrances causes respiratory problems, congestion, and migraines.

In fact, for more than half of those affected, the adverse effects are severe enough to be considered “disabling,” as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Dr. Steinemann reported that 99 percent of Americans are regularly exposed to fragrances, whether they like it or not.

Toxic scents are used in an overwhelming amount of commercial products from detergents to cleaning supplies, air fresheners, hair spray, soap, perfumes, candles, and more.

Even “un-scented” items contain perfume in the form of a “masking fragrance” that hides the smell of chemicals!

And you won’t believe what’s in all this stuff.

A closer look at 37 popular products containing “fragrance” showed more than 150 different noxious compounds, 42 of which are considered toxic or hazardous under U.S. federal law.

These toxins include carcinogens, hormone disruptors, respiratory irritants, neurotoxins, formaldehyde, ethanol, and more.

But, fortunately, there are safe, all-natural alternatives that can help you limit your exposure.

Health experts like Dr. Steinemann recommend visiting your local health food store and purchasing non-toxic cleaning supplies and beauty products, to start.

Simply replacing synthetic detergents and soaps is a great start to a safer, happier home!

Steinemann, however, hopes to see this study implicate “fragrance-free” policies in businesses, schools, and other private and public spaces.
