Trivial pursues serial killers domestic
Frying pan, food packaging, refrigerator, cooking oil, pesticides, cleaners, furniture, carpets: all these elements of everyday life can be harmful to your health. Here is some information on these enemies that live in your home.
Fridge and Freezer
Food from the refrigerator must be monitored. Remember that to store food in plastic bags is increasing its rate of decomposition.
Microbial activity continues even in a freezer below 0 degrees. Also be careful with storage time.
The Public Health Agency of Canada declared bisphenol A (BPA) as dangerous. And the American drug agency, the FDA also suspicious of this compound to cause many health problems like birth defects, infertility, cancer and hyperactivity. Traces of bisphenol A have been found in food in contact with the plastic packaging. This compound found in many plastic containers and used in baby bottles, is suspected of having effects adverse health, including brain and prostate in fetuses and young children.
Meanwhile it is better to focus on packaging and storage of food materials listed in the safest state, such as sandstone, glass, clay and cardboard. It is also recommended not to heat up, especially in the microwave, food or drinks in plastic containers containing BPA, as under the action of heat, small amounts of BPA then migrate into the foods and beverages. The detergents and dishwashers are also avoided to wash polycarbonate bottles, as the agents of these products can release BPA.
Vigilance is to be respected because BPA is found in many products such as small household appliances, kitchenware, plastic containers for microwave, reusable water bottles and the lining of cans and cans.
Wearing oil to boiling, let cool, then reheat it again and again would result in changing its chemical composition. These processes will produce dangerous amounts of acyl radicals. These chemicals are linked to the following conditions: hardening of the arteries and heart disease.
Fruits and pesticides
Fruits and vegetables contain organophosphates, which are used as insecticides in agricultural areas. It is required to wash these foods thoroughly before eating. For those who buy organic products used by organic farmers may also be toxic.
Bleach is dangerous to health. It irritates the skin and eyes and can even burn them. When mixed with certain cleaning products, especially those containing ammonia (ie Harpic toilet), the chemical reaction that takes place, can release large amounts of deadly chlorine gas.
Modernity and health does not necessarily rhyme together. This long list is reminiscent of the “Lament of progress!”
