asthma and household chemicals

It's alarming but true scientists and doctors have discovered that there is a connection between our health and the use of everyday household chemicals. High exposure to everyday cleaning products could cause asthma. Expectant mothers who use a lot of household cleaning products may increase the risk of their child developing asthma, claim researchers. They found a link between high exposure to everyday products such as bleach and air freshener in women during pregnancy, or shortly after birth, and wheezing and asthma in their young children. Children exposed to these products had up to a 41 per cent increase in the risk of persistent wheezing by the age of seven, and had slightly lower than normal lung function. There are products that are safer for you and your family. Four Point Wellness is currently looking to help families and individuals that are looking to go green or reduce chemical exposure while not breaking the bank. Please contact Amber Boyd at
