@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.

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 (, 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.

Your are being fooled

(Scroll down for English)

Du blir lurt trill rundt

Det burde være forbudt å tilsette parfyme i alle produkter, det er nok å vaske seg parfymefritt og bruke parfymefri deo, vaske alt av tøy parfymefritt og vaske huset parfymefritt. Jeg gjør det og har gjort så i ca 8 år (2015). Vi er konstruert å puste luft ikke noe annet, lungene har det best da de kun får luft uten andre tilsatser.

Hva er moderne parfyme?

Hva er egentlig astma? Tror du at du vet?

Lukter rent er en feilaktig definisjon av parfyme som industrien bruker for å selge en vare, de lurer deg trill rundt for å tjene penger på din naivitet. Jeg vasker meg hver dag og bruker deodorant men jeg lukter ikke parfyme, jeg bruker parfymefrie produkter. Hva lukter ren luft? Hva lukter rent vann? Ingenting. At det lukter ingenting er å lukte rent. Paryme er unødvendige kjemikalietilsatser, parfyme har ingen funksjon for å gjøre rent eller for å FORHINDRE svette, det gjør såpe og helt andre ingredienser enn parfyme.

Rent lukter ikke parfyme, det lukter ikke svette og skitt heller. Rent lukter ingenting.

In English

You are outwitted

It should be illegal to add perfume in all products, it is enough to wash perfume free and wear perfume free deo, wash all the laundry perfume free and clean the house perfume free. I do it and have done so for approximately 8 years (2015). We are designed to breathe air nothing else, the lungs do best when they only get air without any other additives.

What is modern perfume?

What exactly is asthma? Think you know?

Smells clean is an erroneous definition of perfume industry uses to sell their products, they trick you to make money at your naivete. I wash myself every day and use deodorant but I did not smell perfume, I use perfume free products. What does clean air smell? What smells clean water? Nothing. It smells nothing to smell clean. Perfume is unnecessary chemicals added, perfume has no function to clean or to PREVENT sweat, soap and completely different ingredients than perfume do that.

Clean does not smell of perfume, it does not smell of sweat and dirt either. Clean smell nothing.
