Air Freshner Killing You?

I think most of us have air freshner in our house or office. According to a new study in Environmental Health Perspectives, women who use air fresheners as little as once a week experience reduced heart rate variability. This situation linked to heart attack and high blood pressure. From their data, 581 adults taking part in a long running Swiss study on air pollution, researchers made an alarming discovery. Women are the most likely to have hearts that don’t respond or adjust as quickly to different demands for those women who reported the most frequent use of spray air fresheners.
Researchers speculate that it could be due to common ingredients in air freshening sprays that react with a common indoor air pollutant to form another toxic pollutant. If you want a clean-smelling home, ditch the air freshener sprays and the synthetic scented candles while you’re at it.
