We are all aware that old age is like a second childhood. We care for our elderly just as much as we would for a kid. But despite our best efforts, we often fall short.
That happens because most of us are not aware of the fact that the household cleaners we use every day are dangerously toxic. We assume they’d be safe; after all, they are supposed to be cleaners, our protector against disease-causing germs. So how could they harm us? Sadly, the truth is quite the opposite & senior citizens, due to their lowered immunity, are particularly vulnerable to its ill-effects.
We are kept in the dark and dirty secrets are swept under the carpet.
Ingredients in commercial cleaners can cause asthma, hormone disruption, neurotoxicity and even cancer! Senior citizens are the most vulnerable.
Some of these dangerous ingredients include:
Found in: Most liquid dishwashing detergents
Health risks: It is a probable carcinogen & a known aggressive antibacterial agent that can promote the growth of drug-resistant bacteria.
Found in: Multipurpose cleaners
Health risks: In addition to causing sore throats when inhaled, at high levels glycol ethers can also contribute to narcosis, pulmonary edema, and severe liver and kidney damage.
Found in: Laundry detergents & household cleaners
Health risks: Adversely affects elderly people with lung issues and breathing problems.
