Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

Møgelskade gav parfymebesvær -Mold damage cause fragrance sensitivity – Lotta Fäldt Magnusson – corren.se

Ble parfymesensitive etter møgelskade

Lotta Fäldt Magnusson forteller i corren.se om hvordan hun ble parfymesensitive etter å ha bodd i en møgelskadet leilighet. Etter tre år i en leilighet med svartmøgel under gulvet tåler hun ikke lengre parfyme og har i tillegg fått mange andre allergiske besvær. Hun sier at hennes livskvalitet er svært redusert.

“Det var svartmögel i Stångåstadens lägenhet där hon bodde i tre år som har gjort henne sjuk. Redan under första året i bostaden började hon må dåligt, kunde inte andas och hade starka allergiska reaktioner. Hon blev sjukskriven och förlorade till slut jobbet på grund av långvarig sjukskrivning. Vid reparation visade det seg att det under golvet fanns svartmögel. Hon flyttade från lägenheten. Lotta Fäldt Magnusson har flera läkarutlåtanden från Allergicentrum där det står om hennes försämrade hälsa och sjukdomssymptom.

– Stämbanden är skadad för alltid och rösten sviker mig. Jag har ingen känsel i näsan. Tidigare har jag aldrig blivit allergisk mot någonting men nu tål jag inget. Om en person som har använt parfym kommer i min närhet i till exempel en mataffär måste jag sluta handla och gå därifrån. För att inte tala om hur jobbigt det kan vara att tvätta i en gemensam tvättstuga där många använder sköljmedel, säger Lotta Fäldt Magnusson.
– Jag måste ta medicin resten av livet. Det var inte mitt fel att jag blev sjuk.”11,03,2016  Corren.se

Hun stemmer nå utleier i Linköping for svie og torte og varige men, mistet inntekt og livskvalitet. Personlig håper jeg på at hun vinner fram i retten. Man har krav på erstatning ved arbeidsskade, så hvorfor ikke ved skade fra bolig? Stå på!

Fragrance sensitive after mold injury

Lotta Fäldt Magnusson tells corren.se about how she became perfume sensitive after living in a black mold infested apartment. After three years in an apartment with black mold subfloor withstand she no longer perfume and has also received many other allergic symptoms. She says that her quality of life is severely diminished.

“There was black mold in Stångåstaden apartment where she lived for three years, which has made her sick. Already during the first year of residence, she began to feel ill, she could not breathe and had strong allergic reactions. She became sick and eventually lost her job because of prolonged sick leave. When doing a repair in the apartment, it was sub-floor found black mold. She moved from the apartment. Lotta Fäldt Magnusson has several medical reports from the Allergy Centre  about her deteriorating health and disease symptoms.

– The vocal cords are damaged forever, and my voice fails me. I have no sensation in the nose. Previously, I have never been allergic to anything, but now I can not withstand anything. If a person who has used the perfume comes near, for example, at a supermarket, I have to stop shopping and go away from there. Not to mention how hard it can be to wash in a common laundry room where many people use fabric softener, says Lotta Fäldt Magnusson.
– I have to take medication for life. It was not my fault that I got sick. ” 11 March 2016 Corren.se

She is now suing the landlord in Linköpng for pain and suffering, permanent damage to her health, lost income and quality of life. Personally I hope that she is successful in court. One get damage if getting ill at work so why not if you get ill from your home? You go girl!

Astma suger – Asthma sucks

(Scroll down for English)

Astma suger

Astma suger, ikke bare det gjør det vanskelig å puste når det slå til, det gjør en barriere mot andre mennesker på grunn av allergener og irritanter de bruker, det gjør et hindre å komme inn lokaler på grunn av allergener og irritanter som brukes i omgivelsene, det gjør det vanskelig å finne en kjær på grunn av allergener og irritanter folk bruker, og når man får en luftveisinfeksjon da blir det enda verre.

Denne gangen var jeg uheldig å få bronkitt og bronkiolitt samtidig og selvfølgelig gjorde det at min astma slo til også, så ja, astma suger.

Både bronkitt, bronkiolitt og astma sitter i bronkiene i lungene, så denne gangen ble jeg hardt rammet. Takk og lov for medisiner, jeg jobber på å bli frisk så jeg kan gå tilbake til jobben så fort som mulig.

Asthma sucks

Asthma sucks, not only it makes it hard to breathe when it strikes, it makes a barrier to other people due to allergens and irritants they use, it makes a hindering to enter premises due to allergens and irritants used in the surroundings, it makes it hard to find a dear due to allergens and irritants people use, and when one get a airway infection it gets even worse.

This time I was unfortunate to get bronchitis and bronchiolitis caused by a virus infection at the same time and of course it made my asthma go bunkers as well, so yes, asthma sucks.

Both bronchitis, bronchiolitis and asthma is located in the bronchi of the lungs and this time it hit me hard. I am so thankful for medicines and I am working on getting well so I can go back to work as soon as possible.

@TodayShow what NOT to do at the #loo – #IndoorAir #Health #AirSafety #Asthma #AirFreshener #TodayShow #Media

This is a story about how ignorant people do their absolute best to mess up the lives of others. When you have read this I hope you know and do better in the future.

 Image of a bathroom.

Screenprint of Today Show headline. “How to clear the air after using the bathroom.”

Responsible for others health

Today I read an article at Today Show and I was horrified to read their advice on how to avoid the embarrassing feeling of “certain air you’ve left behind”.

Today show (and unfortunately other media too) communicates the destruction of your health.

Today Show only gave two good advice in the whole article. As follows:

“First and foremost, reduce odors by flushing the toilet as soon as you can. The quicker the flush, the less the odor. A “courtesy flush” is not only courteous, it’s smart.

Ventilate! Open a window or turn on the exhaust fan. Most bathrooms have exhaust fans above the toilet. Just make sure you’ve turned on the fan and not the heater portion of the fixture. Leave it running even after you leave the bathroom.” Today Show

I would have added make the sit on the toilet as short as possible, the longer you sit the greater the possibility for the odor to spread, and put the lid down before flushing to keep it all in the toilet.

What they say after this is what endanger people’s health and lives.

Then Today Show follows up with saying:

“Unfortunately, toilets don’t come with built-in air fresheners.” Today Show

I am happy every time I enter a WC without built-in air polluters since it in reality pollute the air to the point that I can not even enter the toilet to do what I need. In worse case if I have actually managed to enter before that chemical machine burst out it’s bomb I have to run out when it does. Actually I have to always be aware and check the room before I even enter because such fragrance machines send me to the ER for asthma treatment because the contents coming out of it makes me suffocate due to asthma attacks.

There are worse things than poo odor. Such so called Air Fresheners are actually hazardous chemicals. Open a window or accept that’s the way nature is.

It is way better to clean the WC room fragrance free, and a little more often. In the end it is cleaning that keeps the toilet clean, not fragrance.

Today Show  then follows up with saying even more health damaging tips.

“Fragrant hand lotion: Apply it liberally to your hands then wave your hands in the air. Some people go so far as to squirt a bit of lotion into the commode.” Today Show

This is enough to give allergy and asthma symtoms in a person entering after you.

“Hair spray: The heavier the fragrance, the better when it comes to this emergency air freshener. Again, a puff in the air and one in the toilet works wonders.” Today Show

This is enough to send any asthma sick person entering after you to the ER. NOT recommended.

“Perfume/cologne: If you’re lucky enough to have a small vial of perfume with you, your troubles are over. One sprinkle and odors are gone.” Today Show

This is enough to send any asthma sick person entering after you to the ER. NOT recommended.

“Spray bathroom cleaner” Today Show

This is enough to send any asthma sick person entering after you to the ER. NOT recommended.

“Cleanser” Today Show

This is enough to send any asthma sick person entering after you to the ER. NOT recommended.

“Bleach” Today Show

This is enough to send any asthma sick person entering after you to the ER. NOT recommended.

“White vinegar” and
“Baking soda” Today Show

This is often recommended as a more natural choice but combined in the same cocktail it produces a gas that is irritating the airways in the lungs.

“Liquid hand soap” and
“Shampoo/Conditioner” Today Show

Those go under the same as above-mentioned. This is enough to give allergy and asthma symtoms in a person entering after you. Depending on the grade of severity of the asthma, it can give all from minor issues to send the person in to life threatening asthma attacks.

Today Show Are you out of your mind? is all that comes in to my mind when I see these advices. People doing this can send anyone having asthma or other lung disease or sensitivity to the ER with life threatening conditions.

You are such a big news media and you have a great responsibility for what news you share and the impact it has. Last time I checked your post was shared 196 times. A post shared 196 times by people having about 300 people in their friends list is 58.800 possible views.

Are you aware that there are 300 million people having asthma in the world (WHO 2011)? expected to be 400 million people in some years (WHO). In Europe there are 30 million people having asthma (Efanet.org), and in the US 25,5 million people (2010) have asthma  (adults 18.7 million, children 6,8 million, fig 2010).

Figures from 2010 shows that in the US those made 14.2 million visits to the physician office (2010) and 1.8 million emergency visits to the ER (2010), 439.000 hospitalized (2010), 3630 deaths from asthma (2013).

Do you now realize the severity in what you have done?

Imagine the damage you have done to all the people in the world having asthma.

Polluting of air increase the health risk of those having asthma. But it do not stop there, the same goes for those allergic (can be life threatening), other lung diseases (can be life threatening, other kinds of sensitivity like for example hyperactivity, hypersensitivity to chemicals and so on.

By sharing such stupid tips you spread and increase the endagering of people’s health.

Perfume and air pollution
Did you know this about fragrance? Perfume has become the new passive smoke. It’s become as common with perfumed products today as smoking was before,  the spreading in the air violates the rights of those who get sick from it.

Open letter to Norwegian Food Safety Authority

Food safety, air safety, delivery and cleaning

Today when I woke up and had my breakfast I remembered a thing that happened when I went shopping last summer, that in the next made me remember when I again was subjected to such an event just like this one. I have asthma and get breathing issues from chemicals as very many others.  That time at Christmas time I went  shopping potatoes at Kiwi and had a bad experience getting an asthma attack from a floor cleaning machine spreading its fumes around the store. The store stank from heavy chemicals and my asthma attack was acute from the content of these fumes. They were cleaning in opening hours and the food was not covered. Continue reading

More than one person every two hours on average, due to smoking-related diseases

“It is hard to imagine that over 1 million people (1/5) in Norway still smoke regularly. Smoking has almost been “free fall” in many years, and the smoking epidemic is said already to have gone into a discharge phase. But each year still die over 5000 people – or more than one person every two hours on average, due to smoking-related diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and lung disease. Imagine that as many had perished in traffic. Do not you think the government would do more to solve the problem?”
All patients should be asked about smoking habits and it should be registered, and since fragrance hold many of the same substances as smoke fragrance use should be checked out too.
