Do you work from home and long for fresh air?
You may think that a mist diffuser air freshener is the answer to your prayers, but have you ever stopped to consider the health risks associated with these products?
Research has shown that mist diffuser air fresheners may be just as harmful to your health as cigarette smoke.
To understand why, it’s important to consider the ingredients in these products. Many of the chemicals found in air fresheners are known to be carcinogenic, meaning they can cause cancer.
In addition, some of the ingredients can cause respiratory problems such as asthma.
What’s more, these products are often not regulated by the FDA. This means that manufacturers can include any number of chemicals in their products without being held accountable for their safety.
This is a huge risk for consumers, as many of these chemicals have not been tested for their long-term health effects on humans.
Even more evidence is found in a laptop or PC that is in the same room as one of these air fresheners. In a rather short amount of time, the cooling fans become coated with a sticky substance that is just as impossible to clean as when cooling fans are coated with cigarette smoke residue.
This residue collects dust and actually reduces the fan’s capability to cool the computer and can even cause it to overheat.
Imagine what a person’s lungs must endure while breathing in the mist from these types of air fresheners.
The bottom line is that mist diffuser air fresheners can be just as dangerous to your health as cigarette smoke. Although they may smell nice, they can be filled with a variety of toxic chemicals that can cause serious health problems over time.
If you’re looking to stay healthy and breathe fresh air while working from home, it’s important to consider the potential risks associated with using mist diffuser air fresheners.
