Chemical exposure before birth

“The established Western medicine and the FDA is true (Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration also is about drugs, vert.) Warn regularly presumed dangers of alternative medicines and dietary supplements, but they never talk about the widely used and perfectly legal chemical toxins that invade our bodies through the environment. And there’s more, the American nature there is little to do for many of these chemicals that threaten the health, to ward off common consumer products. Now, two new studies have shown that many children breathing problems could have caused by this common chemical threats.

A good example is that by researchers at the Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health (the CCCEH), working at the Mailman School of Public Health and Columbia University Medical Center, has shown that children who have been exposed before birth to the widely used pesticide ingredient piperonlybutoxide (PBO) have a greater chance that they have chronic cough at the age of five and six years. Their research, which was recently published in the online edition of the journal Environment International, provides evidence that the lungs of children are susceptible to damage by toxins while children are still in the womb. The problems are not the result of an infection, but chronic cough in children, the normal daily activities of the children quite upset and they also disrupt the sleep of both the children and their parents. But what exactly PBO? It is a chemical that enhances the effects of pyrethroids, substances used in pesticides that are most used by both professional pest control operators as well as consumers, according to a survey by researchers at the Mailman School from 2011. Previous research had shown that exposure to any of the pyrethroids, in particular a variant of the fabric permethrin, was in particular related to the occurrence of cough at the age of five years. The new research shows that children who are pregnant have come up with PBO contacted had an increased risk of cough that were not related to colds or flu. A chemical cause of asthma in children? Another new study by the CCCEH shows an even see much more serious problem, that the ability of children to get free breath can hamper. It appears that children who are exposed to diethyl phthalate (DEP) and benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), substances belong to chemical group phthalates, which are widely used in personal care products and plastic objects, have an increased risk of infections airways that are related to asthma. research team examined 244 children aged between five and nine years old and found that phthalates in urine were detectable in all children. The children with the highest concentration in their urine of both phthalates had a higher concentration of nitric oxide in their exhaled air, which is a biomarker for airway inflammation. The link between exposure to GDP and airway inflammation was especially strong among children who had recently had shown, wheezing a common symptom of asthma. “Although there are many factors that contribute to the development of asthma, our research shows that phthalates a play an important role, “says Allan Just, PhD, first author of the new study recently published online in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. It’s hard to protect your children from phthalates because the manufacturers allowed them use, including plastic, vinyl flooring and body care products. countless consumer products We get phthalates in with our food and inhalation. They can also be absorbed through the skin. Except that they are likely to cause in children, asthma is of different phthalates known that they may cause, the neurological and behavioral problems may impair fertility and may cause eczema in the Author: The work of author Sherry Baker is in many publications, including Newsweek, Health, the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, Yoga Journal, Optometry, Atlanta, Arthritis Today, Natural Healing Newsletter, OMNI, UCLA’s “Healthy Years” newsletter , Mount Sinai School of Medicine’s “Focus on Health Aging” newsletter, the Cleveland Clinic’s “Men’s Health Advisor” newsletter and many others.”  14 March 2014 Source: Natural News Translate: Google Translate

Asthma in the 20 when mother exposed during pregnancy

“Children exposed in the womb to two chlorinated chemicals widely found in the environment are more likely to develop asthma by the age of 20, according to new research in Denmark. The study is the first to link asthma to hexachlorobenzene exposure during fetal development, and builds on two earlier studies that linked the respiratory disease to polychlorinated biphenyls.

Asthma facts

Asthma is a chronic illness of the lungs, where the airways tighten and causes problems breathing. It is caused by allergies and irritants inhaled. When this happens the musculature around the airways cramps and mucus i produced in in the lungs in an increased grade. This together make it hard for the person having asthma to breathe. It feels like the lungs shrinks, and one get trouble breathing.

In Norway about 20% of children got asthma, about 5 % of the adults got asthma. If both the mother and the father got asthma then the child are in 50 % higher risk of developing asthma. More and more of the population get asthma. Smoking during pregnancy and the first years of life increases the risk for children to get asthma. The environment is very important for if the children and also if adults develop asthma.

Colds, cold temperatures, wet weather, mist, and wet damages, and allergies and irritants are some of what causes asthma. Irritants can be just anything, it depends on what the person having asthma is sensitive against. Asthma can be inherited, but do not have to be inherited. Even people with parents without allergies and asthma can develop asthma. During evening, night and in the mornings asthma can be worse.

Exercise is good for a person having asthma, but can also be what give an asthma attack and breathing problems. An asthmatic person need to exercise in its own pace.

An asthma that is not right treated with medicine and staying away from irritants can develop into COPD (KOL/KOLS).

People that smoke and got asthma often do not have the same benefit from the asthma medicines provided as those who do not smoke. Active smoking and passive smoking worsen asthma.

Hormone changes and pregnancy can worsen asthma.

Psychological stress can worsen asthma.

It is very important to be in control of your asthma. Control you gain by taking your medicines daily as prescribed, stay away from what make your asthma break out, and see to that you get fresh air.

It is important to use medicines even more when having a cold, because a cold can worsen your asthma.

No medicines can cure asthma. Medicines available reduces the symptoms and effect of the illness. But even when taking the medicines a person can get sick if not being careful, and if not staying away from what make the asthma break out.

Asthma is an invisible handicap, and it can cause trouble for a person working in surtant environments. Those work environments can be kitchen, welding halls, factory, cleaning, car repair garages, or any environment where the person is subjected to pollution of the air.
