Maud Stöm forteller sin historie om parfyme

Akkurat nå pågår den parfymefrie uken i Skandinavia som er et samarbeid mellom astma og allergiforbunden i Sverige, Danmark, Finland og Norge. Dessverre er det lite å vise til aktivitet fra Norges Astma og Allergiforbund NAAF i vanlig ordning, men Astma og Allergiforbundet i Sverige gjør desto mer.

I denne artikkelen forteller Maud Strøm som er en tidligere lærer hvordan det er å være allergisk og sensitive mot parfyme, og oppfodrer alle å dempe bruken av parfyme. Bli parfymefri!

“Akkurat nå, den første duftfri uke. Det er det svenske Astma- og Allergiforbund som ønsker å informere om hvordan å ta hensyn til hvordan de dufter og kjemikalier skaper problemer i folks hverdag.

Litt over seks prosent av den voksne befolkningen oppfyller kriteriene for en diagnose kalt hyperreaktivitet eller SHR. For første gang blir nå holdt en parfymert uke som tar sikte på å informere og få folk til å ta større hensyn til de som er overfølsom for lukter.

Maud Ström 61, fra Kalmar i Sverige har SHR og har levd med det siden 70-tallet. Hun jobbet som lærer, men måtte slutte på grunn av alle luktene i klasserommene. Det er ikke noen kur eller medisinsk behandling har for dem som rammes. For henne har det gjort at det opptar all sin tid og at hun unngår offentlige steder.

– Kan man trene en uke for å være parfymefri så er det veldig mye bonus med det, og kanskje det kan etablere en god vane, sier hun til P4 Kalmar.

Det er så mange som en tredjedel av den voksne befolkningen som sier at man reagerer på lukter og kjemikalier. Det viser en rapport Astma og Allegiförbundet Sverige har utviklet sammen med Sahlgrenska universitetssykehuset.

Maud Strøm tror at alle nå vil tenke på hvor mange parfymerte produkter de har på en vanlig dag, og spesielt (men ikke utelukkende) å tenke på hvordan barn påvirkes av kjemikalier i parfymerte produkter.

– Siden jeg har en bakgrunn i en verden av skolen, er jeg veldig bekymret for at det ikke er noen tall som viser hvordan våre barn har blitt påvirket av dette. Jeg blir også bekymret da jeg ser nye foreldre med barnevogner, og det bare oser av tøymykner, vaskemiddel, og en blanding av produkter.

” Fler og fler får det som meg, og det ønsker jeg ingen.”” Maud Ström

Takk Maud Strøm for å stå fram i offentligheten og fortelle om dette. Beintøft av deg!

Maud Ström tells her story in Swedish Radio

Right now in progress the perfume-free week in Scandinavia which is a collaboration between asthma and allergy associations in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. Unfortunately, there is little to show for activity from the Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association NAAF in common arrangement, but Asthma and Allergy Association in Sweden makes the more of it.

In this article tells Maud Ström who is a former teacher how it is to be allergic and sensitive to perfume, and calls all to curb the use of perfume. Be fragrance free!

“Right now, the first fragrance free week. It is the Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association wishing to inform on how to take into account how the fragrances and chemicals causes problems in people’s everyday lives.

Just over six percent of the adult population meets the criteria for a diagnosis called hyperreactivity or SHR. For the first time now held a perfumed week that aims to inform and get people to take greater account of those who are hypersensitive to smells.

Maud Ström 61, from Kalmar in Sweden has SHR and have lived with it since the 70s. She worked as a teacher, but had to quit because of all the smells in classrooms. There is no cure or medical treatment have for those affected. For her it has made that take up all their time and that she avoids public places.

– Can you train a week to be fragrance free so it is very much bonus with it, and maybe it can establish a good habit, she says to P4 Kalmar Sweden.

There are as many as a third of the adult population who say reacts to smells and chemicals. According to a report Asthma and Allegy Association Sweden has developed together with Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

Maud Power believe that everyone will now think about how many scented products they have on a normal day, and especially (but not exclusively) to think about how children are affected by chemicals in scented products.

– Since I have a background in the world of school, I am very concerned that there are no figures showing how our children have been affected by this. I am also concerned when I see new parents with strollers, and it just oozes fabric softener, detergent, and a mix of products.

“More and more get it like me, and this I do not want for anyone.” ” Maud Ström

Thank you so much Maud Ström for standing up in public and speak out!

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
