The presence of insects or mice is very unpleasant, especially since these can cause disgust among some, fear and even panic phobia among others. In addition to these effects, some of these little flying or crawling creatures can cause significant damage to wood furniture they gnaw, the foods they contaminate, to indoor plants they eat, pets and even to human.
To get rid of it, many of us have recourse to buying insecticides from the market , that in come forms: powder, spray, electric socket, etc. Now these products, even if  they may be effective, are very dangerous to the health of people exposed to it.
What are the risks of prolonged exposure to insecticides?
The active substances of these products accumulate in fatty tissue, blood, liver, and may even pass into breast milk. Thus, they can cause allergic reactions in the skin, eyes and mucous membranes, irritate the respiratory system and cause, in the long asthma attacks. In addition, prolonged exposure to these substances can cause the onset of some cancers in adults and in children. A study conducted by INSERM (National Institute of Health and Medical Research) shows that children whose mothers were exposed to household insecticides during pregnancy are at risk 2 times higher of developing acute childhood leukemia.
In addition, another study by the same Institute has observed that people exposed in the course of their work, the chemicals in pesticides showed a more rapid deterioration of memory, alertness and concentration.
It has also been proven that these chemicals were causing the weakening of the immune system, infertility, birth defects, and even neurological disorders.
