Fresh air does not smell of fragrance

Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

Alkohol og kreft – Mother Jones

Jeg anbefaler denne artikkelen som handler om hvordan industrien skjuler det faktum at alkohol er kreftframkallende og fremmer salg av alkohol ved å gjøre produktene til Rosa Sløyfe produkter, altså mot brystkreft. Kjøp et carciogen og gi penger til kreftforskning…

Why #airfreshener and #scentedcandles can wreck your health

Putting a wiff of danger in the air

Fresh air what is that? some like us to believe that it is a chemical blend of hundreds of chemicals in mixes to make a scent to lure our nose and brain that there is something pleasant going on, while the truth is that fresh air is mother natures own blend created to make us live a healthy life, and it does not contain any fragrance at all. It is color free and scent free.

Faximilie Daily Mail 3 September 2015 “Chemical sprays, plug-ins and gels for home perfuming are hugely popular but investigators warn that they can include an array of hazardous substances which may cause lung damage and tumours, interfere with our hormones and cause such lifelong problems as asthma. Last month, a study involving Public Health England’s Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards, warned that plug-in air fresheners produce ‘considerable’ levels of formaldehyde: described by the US government’s National Toxicology Program as a known ‘human carcinogen’. It is most closely linked with cancers of the nose and throat and at the very least, it can also cause sore throats, coughs, scratchy eyes and nosebleeds. It is not the only chemical to fear in air fresheners. Other basic ingredients include petroleum products and such chemicals as p-dichlorobenzene, which hardly bring to mind summer meadows, vanilla pods and sultry spices.” Daily Mail

If you want fresh air you should open a window.

It is also found that air fragranceing can harm your baby even before it is born so that the child get lung problems and expericnce breathing problems.

“In 2013, after a study of more than 2,000 pregnant women, the International Journal of Public Health reported that women who used air fresheners in their homes were significantly more likely to have babies that suffered from wheezing and lung infections.” Daily Mail

The use of air fragrance can also cause other health issues like nausea, headaches, migraine, depression and many more.

“A 2007 study also found that using air fresheners as little as once a week can raise the risk of asthma in adults. The same report found that the risk of developing asthma was up to 50 per cent higher in people who had been exposed to air-freshener sprays.

Many air fresheners also contain substances called volatile organic compounds (VOCs), characterised by their low boiling points which mean they form vapour or gas at room temperature. Experts warn that these can increase the risk of asthma.

Another common ingredient is naphthalene, which has been shown to cause tissue damage and cancer in the lungs of rats and mice in laboratory studies.

Not all of the ingredients used in the actual perfumes are fully listed and critics claim that these can each be made up of several hundred different chemicals.

In March, a team of experts tested six scented candles, with such aromas as clean cotton, strawberry and kiwi fruit.

Behind their delicious labels, however, lay a host of potentially dangerous industrial chemicals, including formaldehyde at levels which, with long-term exposure, are known to raise the risk of respiratory problems and cancer.

The candles also gave off significant levels of VOCs. Furthermore, the study warned that you don’t even need to light such candles because simple evaporation will enable them to pollute your home. Most scented candles are made with paraffin, which brings other problems. The oil by-product gives off ultra-fine soot particles containing acetone, benzene and toluene, usually seen in diesel emissions, and known carcinogens.” Daily Mail

And if you think insence is any safer…

“Burning incense releases tiny chemical particles which can become trapped in our lungs, causing potentially dangerous inflammatory reactions. The research also found that incense particles from commonly used ingredients agarwood and sandalwood are more toxic to our cells’ DNA than tobacco smoke.” Daily Mail

Perhaps it is time to stop this habit of using air scenting and fragrancing in all?

“Air is the Earth’s atmosphere. Air around us is a mixture of  78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.039% carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases. There is an average of about 1% water vapour. It is the clear gas in which living things live and breathe. It has an indefinite shape and volume. It has no color or smell. It has mass and weight. It is a matter as it has mass and weight. Air creates atmosphere pressure. There is no air in the vacuum and cosmos.” Wikipedia

We need air tor breathe and live, not fragrance chemicals.

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.

Spray tan is harmful – nrk.no

“Spraytan can be hazardousScientists warn: Frequent use increases the risk of lung cancer.

Many people use spraytanning in Norway, probably because of cancer risks associated with tanning. Now it turns out that the way to get the color nor is completely harmless.

U.S. scientists warn of increased risk of lung cancer due to spraytanning.

Lynn Goldman, dean of the School of Public Health and Health Services at George Washington University in Washington DC, says she is very concerned about the potential lung cancer risk.

Harmful breathing

The main active ingredient in self-tanning creams are dihydroxiaceton (DHA ), a sugar that is also part of human metabolism. It is precisely this drug is dangerous to inhale.

– The lungs have a large surface, as this drug enters the cells and is taken up into the blood stream, said lung specialist Rey Panettieri at the Perelman School of Medicine in Pennsylvanial.

DHA can damage the DNA material of the body. It can cause cancer and serious lung disease, as well as aggravate asthma and other respiratory problems.”

 

I HAVE TO NOTE YOU THIS. I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS MYSELF. I HAVE NEVER USED SPRAYTAN. I ONLY TAKE THE WORD FOR IT. Reason I have not used it is I am not interested in such, and also it is not a possibility for me to even try it since it is airborn and one have to inhale it. Logic says it is bad news, so I have never tried. According to the article I am right.
On top of it, it do not look very natural. I believe natural is best.http://www.nrk.no/livsstil/spraytan-kan-vaere-helsefarlig-1.8200521

Incense toxic and harmful to health and indoor air

#incense The study followed 61,320 men and women between the ages of 45 and 74 for 12 years. When burned, incense releases carcinogens such as polyaromatic hyodrcarbons (PAHs), a class of toxins that includes formaldehyde and that has been linked to lung cancer in smokers. An earlier study found PAH content in temples that burn incense up to 45 times higher than in homes where people smoke. Incense typically contains other carcinogens such as carbonyls and benzene, which can trigger DNA mutations in human cells. Although the components of incense typically include benign plant and flower matter along with essential oils, most formulations also incorporate not-so-benign artificial fragrances and binders. The smoke produced as incense burns releases particulate matter, and because it slowly smolders, it releases even higher concentrations.” Sudy made by Study director Dr. Jeppe Friborg, of Statens Serum Institute in Copenhagen

As Dr. Len Horvitz, a pulmonary specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, said, “Anything that affects air quality negatively is not a good thing. Burning in general and the release of smoke, these things are certainly to be avoided. At the very least, chemical irritants will set off asthma, and that’s reversible. Cancer is not reversible.”

“This is not unlike the type of risk that one experiences from secondhand tobacco smoke,” said Dr. Len Lichtenfeld of the American Cancer Society.

“Burning incense produces particulates greater than 45 mg/g burned as compared to only 10 mg/g burned for cigarettes–more than four times the load. So if you’re sitting right on top of burning incense and breathing it in, you’re getting a heavier whack of particulates than you would from smoking.”

“Incense has been implicated before in numerous studies (along with its cousin, scented candles). One such study found that exposure to burning incense at least once a week during pregnancy increases the risk that the child will develop leukemia by 2.7 times. ”

“Another measured air quality in several Dutch churches that burned candles and incense and found the particulate levels 20 times higher than they were next to a typical busy road. Other studies have determined links between incense allergic contact dermatitis, various respiratory conditions including asthma, and cancers of the nervous system.”

Scent light and airfresheners can give you cancer

Scent light can give you cancer

Think twice the next time you light a scented candle or spray some forest scent in your (smoky) lounge .

For me Scent lights have the effect on my breathing like you suck the air out of the room. If I sit in a room where is lid scent lights my lungs Closes up and I slowly suffocate. In addition to this effect you have maybe never thought of one can read With the newspaper Aftonbladet and EU that:

“Fragrance may be toxic.

Many air fresheners contain carcinogens.

cozy – but dangerous Scent Candles spreads pleasant smell but they can cause cancer. 

The EU consumer body BEUC who have tested 76 air fresheners , ie light , sprays and others with more or less fragrant products designed to make the air more pleasant to breathe – or simply hide an odor.

And many of the products tested were found to contain a variety of known toxins , BEUC writes in a press release.

Here are some of the toxins they found :

 Acetaldehyde . A carcinogen . Causes nausea and vomiting. The threshold value is set to 45 milligrams per cubic meter of air .

 formaldehyde. The carcinogen formaldehyde is highly irritating to mucous membranes and may cause hypersensitivity reactions. The products tested emitted more than WHO’s recommended limit of 10 grams per cubic meter.

 Styrén . Is the damage to the central nervous system, damage is usually described as a solvent damage.

 benzene. Is highly carcinogenic and its use in gasoline , paints, lacquers and solvents have been limited . In chronic exposure to benzene can give bone marrow damage and leukemia. The threshold value is 1.5 milligrams per cubic meter of air .

The preparations were also a number of other known allergens . Now requires BEUC to fragrance products shall bear warnings in case they contain hazardous substances.”

Not so sexy – researched perfume

Again I have found an article where researchers have conducted tests on perfume. The test is called The Health Risks of Secret Chemicals in Fragrance by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics May 12th, 2010.

To qoute them researchers:

“A rose may be a rose. But that rose-like fragrance in your perfume may be something else entirely, concocted from any number of the fragrance industry’s 3,100 stock chemical ingredients, the blend of which is almost always kept hidden from the consumer.”

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics that is an independent lab tested 17 fragrance products, and their partner Environmental Working Group gathered information from the ingredients labels of the products.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and Environmental Working Group concluded with:

“Fragrance is now considered among the top five allergens in North America and European countries and is associated with a wide range of skin, eye and respiratory reactions. Repeated, cumulative exposure to chemical sensitizers like allergenic fragrance ingredients increases the chance that a person will develop allergic symptoms later in life. Our tests found an average of 10 chemical sensitizers in each fragrance product.”

The analyze gave the result that:

  • “Fourteen secret chemicals not listed on labels due to a loophole in federal law that allows companies to claim fragrances as trade secrets.”
  • “Ten sensitizing chemicals associated with allergic reactions such as asthma, wheezing, headaches and contact dermatitis.”
  • “Four hormone-disrupting chemicals linked to a range of health effects including sperm damage, thyroid disruption and cancer.”

The majority of the chemicals found in this report have never been tested and checked for for safety by any publicly approved agency, and also not by the perfume and cosmetics industry self-policing review panels.

And The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and their partner Environmental Working Group also announce the chocking effects and numbers of  damage on peoples health:

“When sprayed or applied on the skin, many chemicals from perfumes, cosmetics and personal care products are inhaled or absorbed through the skin. A recent EWG study found synthetic musk chemicals Galaxolide and Tonalide in the umbilical cord blood of newborn infants; these chemicals were found in all but one fragrance analyzed for this study. Diethyl phthalate (DEP), which appeared in 12 of the 17 products we tested, has been found in 97 percent of Americans tested by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
