Using the National Library ToxNet Click Me! I was able to find out that women who clean with bleach are at a higher risk of getting non-allergic adult-onset asthma, as well as elevated neutrophil (those are white blood cells) counts.
As far as the effects from urea formaldehyde, there are a lot of negative effects. For factory workers with exposure to urea formaldehyde there are drastic amounts of lung cancer mortality as well as nasopharyngeal cancer deaths. What I found interesting was the buccal cavity tumors and cancers. The buccal cavity is your cheek and inner mouth cavity.
I wonder if the factory managers knew about these risks and if they let the employees know about all of these risks.

Wow that is terrible! I have sometimes used products with bleach to clean my home in the past, but I never will again after reading your blog post. I always knew it wasn't good for me, but I didn't realize the risks were so drastic. I definitely do not wnat to be at risk for adult-onset asthma, especially given the terrible air quality in the Bay Area, which will probably only continue to worsen due to climate change and wildfires. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
