Chem­i­cal risk

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - WELL BEING -

Us­ing dis­in­fec­tants, such as bleach and hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide, once a week can in­crease your risk of devel­op­ing lung con­di­tions – in­clud­ing chronic bron­chi­tis, em­phy­sema and asthma – by as much as 32 per cent, ac­cord­ing to new re­search. The study, in­volv­ing 55,000 nurses in the US, was con­ducted by Har­vard Uni­ver­sity and the French Na­tional In­sti­tute of Health and Med­i­cal Re­search.
