Nowadays our homes are full of pollutants. Our carpets, rugs, furniture and wall paint all release potentially harmful fumes such as:
Benzene : A human carcinogen found in glue, wax, dyes, nylon, pesticides, detergent, furniture paint and cigarette smoke. Long term exposure to high levels causes immune deficiency, anemia, infertility and cancer.
Formaldehyde : A human carcinogen found in carpets, non-crease materials, manufactured wood furniture, paints, varnishes, antispectics, cleaning agents and cosmetics. Long term exposure to high levels causes asthma, infertility, gastrointestinal disorders, liver and kidney damage and cancer.
Trichlorethylene : Found in some vegetable oils, dry cleaning solvents, drinking water, detergents, soaps, perfumes and dyes. Long term exposure to high levels causes toxicity to the nervous system, kidneys, liver, immune system and male reproductive system.
Toluene : Found in paint, paint thinners, nail varnish, glue and tanned leather. Long term exposure to high levels causes memory loss, nausea, dizziness, toxicity to the nervous system, heart and blood.
Xylene : Found in synthetic fibres, plastic, cleaning products, shellac, paint, cigarette smoke and petrol. Long term exposure to high levels causes skin irritation, muscle spasms, hearing loss and damage to kidneys, lungs, heart and nervous system.
