To reduce our risk of cancer, nutritionists and doctors recommend eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, sleeping 8 hours a night and avoiding junk food, stress and bad habits (cigarettes, alcohol , Drugs, etc.). But what about our daily environment and especially our bedroom? Is it as healthy as we think? Let's discover the 5 potentially carcinogenic things it contains.


According to statistics, we spend nearly a third of our lives sleeping, so in our bedroom, hence the importance that it is healthy and without toxic elements detrimental to our health. Before giving you the list of items to be disposed of or replaced, it is important to start with natural cleaning products that do not contain toxic substances and make sure to open the windows every morning to ventilate and To sunlight the space.

The 5 things in your bedroom that can cause cancer:

1 - Bedding, clothes and other synthetic fabric

When choosing your mattress, sheets, pillows, pillowcases and even your clothes, be sure to choose organic materials that are safe for your health. Indeed, most of the synthetic materials used, such as acrylic, nylon and polyester, are thermoplastics, which release molecules of gas when exposed to heat. Also consider buying sheets - as well as the entire ornament of your bed, including pillows - of organic material to cover your mattress which is usually covered with a chemical that limits the spread of fire in case of fire.

Do not forget to check the quality of your wardrobe because wrinkle-free clothes are synonymous with the presence of formaldehyde, an allergenic chemical very irritating to the skin and the mucous membranes.

2 - Furniture with artificial materials

It is true that some synthetic materials have advantages over natural materials, such as being stain-resistant or water-resistant, but their health effects are extremely detrimental. Indeed, to acquire these properties, they are treated with chemicals of high toxicity. In addition, "fake materials" such as fake leather, for example, contain PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), a material made from salt and petroleum residues and which, when exposed to the sun, emits VOCs (Organic Compounds Volatiles) that accumulate in the air and cause many health problems such as respiratory disorders, headaches, eye irritations and nausea, in addition to their polluting effect on the environment.


It is also recommended that any furniture made of MDF (Medium Density Fiber: medium density wood fiber) be removed from your home because, despite their practicality and low cost, these materials contain too much Resin and formaldehyde, whose inhalation aggravates asthma and lung disease. In addition, it has been associated with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (throat cancer).

3 - VOC painting

For the paint to have a viscosity and a flow that facilitate its application and give a good finishing effect, solvents are added. These are Volatile Organic Compounds which, as explained in the previous section, react with other pollutants when they come in contact with the rays of the sun, and impact your health.

4 - Footwear

To preserve your health and reduce your risk of cancer, it is very important not to enter your home while you are always wearing your shoes. These contain more than 421,000 different bacteria, 90% to 99% of which are found on the floor of your home. In addition, a study by the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) was able to identify the contamination of footwear by 2.4D, a herbicide widely used in agriculture and whose exposure increases Cancer, especially non-Hodgkin's lymphoma affecting lymphocytes.

5 - Electronic devices

Phones, laptops, tablets, etc. Are devices that constantly emit electromagnetic waves, called radiofrequencies, that have a disruptive effect on the structure and function of the nervous system. In addition, these radiofrequencies have been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as possible carcinogens, as they increase the risk of developing brain tumors.

To make your bedroom a healthy environment, choose natural organic materials that are safe for your health, and eliminate carpets and blinds that accumulate allergens (dust, pollen, mites ...). You can also get a HEPA air purifier, preferably mobile, that will allow you to enjoy a healthier indoor air and alleviate your allergy symptoms.
