Cleaning sprays as harmful as smoking: study 18.2.2018 General News
Using cleaning sprays can cause a decline in lung function comparable to the damage seen in regular smokers, a study warns. Researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway analyzed data from 6,235 participants in the European Community Respiratory Health Survey. The participants, whose average age was 34 when they enrolled, were followed for more than 20 years. "While the short-term effects of cleaning chemicals on asthma are becoming increasingly well documented, we lack knowledge of the long-term impact," said Cecile Svanes, a professor at University of Bergen. "We feared that such chemicals, by steadily causing a little damage to the airways day after day, year after year, might accelerate the rate of lung function decline that occurs with age," Svanes said. The study found that the accelerated lung function decline in the women working as cleaners was "comparable to smoking somewhat less than 20 pack- years." That level of lung impairment was surprising at first, said Oistein ...
