Air freshener

Scientists have conducted research and found that in air fresheners, 1–4 ingredients are toxic. Yes, it all depends on individual tolerance, but if these toxins do not kill instantly, it does not mean that they are not harmful.

If you use air fresheners, remember that people live near you who may have asthma or other lung diseases, and children are 30 times more likely than adults to be susceptible to chemicals.

Remember! Using fresheners, you risk health and life.

Antibacterial soap

We are surrounded by a large number of microorganisms that perform a protective function. When we use soap, we wash off not only the harmful, pathogenic bacteria, but also the beneficial ones that fight them.

The composition of antibacterial soap includes triclosan or triclocarban. These components also affect the beneficial bacteria, causing mutations that provoke various diseases and allergies. Constantly antibacterial soap is not desirable to use. Everything is useful in moderation. Use 2 times a week, handle only scratches, cuts, abrasions. Change the brand and grade of soap.

Food Containers

In food containers, food does not dry out and does not absorb odors from the outside. Containers are glass, metal, plastic. Safer - glass. The most used - plastic.

It is necessary to look at the label on the container. Plastic containers are lighter and have a wide variety of shapes. In the past, a toxic substance, bisphenol, was used to make plastic containers. Currently it is no longer used in production.

The safest containers are currently labeled PP - polypropylene. Labeled PET - disposable containers. With marking of PEVP - rather safe. PVC labeled container - not for food. Pay attention to the labeling!
