Carcinogenic products are everywhere and pose a real threat to health. They take the form of a host of everyday products, from detergents to decoration items, to perfume dispensers and toys, all of which can promote the development of cancer . Because of their harmful nature, it is necessary to take certain precautionary measures to clean up their living space.
The environment in which we live, what we eat and our way of life, nourish everyday tumors. To protect ourselves from cancer, we must limit as much as possible our exposure to certain toxic substances, which we use without being aware of their harmfulness.
To better understand the danger we face, here are some precautions:
We spend a third of our lives in the arms of Morpheus. If you want to sleep on your laurels, look after your bedding. Choosing your bedding and pillow is not a step to be overlooked, as shape and material have an impact on your health.
Treat your bedding
Pay attention to beds and mattresses that incorporate synthetic materials derived from non-renewable petrochemicals that produce harmful emissions of volatile organic compounds. Consider purchasing a bed, preferably built with a natural material such as treated wood with a non-toxic and biodegradable shade.
Choosing the right pillow is essential to sleep soundly! The pillow is to choose with special care, even to add more money to the budget! In addition to its shape and firmness, natural filling is the main criterion for pillow selection. Most synthetic materials used, such as nylon, acrylic and polyester, are thermoplastics, which when exposed to heat release harmful gas molecules. Turn to organic pillows, buckwheat ball, spelled ball, millet ball, or wool or goose down.
Synthetic fibers are produced from the distillation of petroleum, coal or products derived from natural gas, and release these plastic molecules in contact with heat. Change your wardrobe and favor organic materials.
Stop false materials
Do not use false materials such as faux wood or fake leather that contain PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), a highly polluting material obtained from petroleum residues and which, when exposed to the sun, emits VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) responsible for respiratory disorders, headache, nausea and eye irritation.
It is also recommended that you dispose of any furniture made of chipboard or MDF (Medium Density Fiber: medium density wood fiber). Although they are highly appreciated for their practicality and inexpensive cost, these materials are not without danger because of their high content of resin and formaldehyde, the inhalation of which aggravates respiratory diseases. In addition, materials such as agglomerate and MDF are associated with throat cancer.
They are decorative and decorate a room with a certain cachet but the carpets trap dust, dust mites, molds and other allergens which can be the source of many health problems. Banish those made from polyester, nylon, antimony or olefin.
The hazards of volatile organic compounds
We are all unaware of the risks of paints based on volatile solvents which evaporate as soon as they are applied to the air and cause various disturbances. These volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are attached to carpets, fabrics and furniture that re-emit them. This can take several months.
A question of hygiene first and foremost!
Like many, we do not necessarily remove our shoes before entering home. And yet, it is a habit to get rid of. Our shoes have an average of 421,000 different bacteria, harvested during a day spent wandering outside. This is the conclusion of a study carried out by scientists from the University of Arizona in the United States. The presence of some of them would cause urinary tract infections or respiratory tract infections.
