4 Dangerous Toxins Most People Use Daily Could Be Rotting You From The Inside Out


    By Adam

    The advent of the technological revolution brought with it an incredible power for humans to eradicate trillions of microbiological threats in an instant.

    The invention of antibacterial and household cleaning products certainly has reduced infection risks, but with it comes some unanticipated health issues.

    In fact, there are 4 dangerous toxins most people use daily that could be rotting you from the inside out.

    These Common Household Cleaners Could Be Destroying Your Body

    We live in an era of unrivaled sanitation.

    Before many pathogens even have the chance to attack us, we have cleaning products that can knock them dead.

    Sadly, even though these products contain chemicals that kill macrophage and bacteria, they also harm our sensitive tissue.

    1 – Window Cleaners:

    Many window cleaners contain a chemical called 2-butoxyethanol.

    And while most cleaners contain this ingredient, U.S. law doesn’t mandate the manufacturers to disclose the use of this ingredient.

    The reason 2-butoxyethanol is problematic is that it acts as a solvent that can degrade the function of cell membranes.

    Once it’s inhaled, the toxin makes its way into the bloodstream, where it may eventually lead to minor issues like sore throat, which devolve into severe conditions like pulmonary edema, narcosis, along with liver and kidney damage.

    2 – Chlorine Bleach:

    If the warning label on most bottles of chlorine bleach doesn’t give it away, then perhaps a fresh reading of the harm chlorine will do, may cause you to try to avoid it.

    Chlorine, in both the liquid and gas form, is one of the most harmful chemical toxins people use daily.

    Chlorine is a caustic chemical, and inhalation of the vapors is enough to cause permanent scarring of the lung tissue as well as eventual cell function disruption.

    If skin should come into contact with the chemical, it can permeate the skin/tissue barrier and enter the bloodstream.

    Once that happens, it can wreak havoc on hormone levels, and extended exposure is associated with harmed thyroid function.

    3 – Triclosan:

    Triclosan is a commonly used antibacterial found in several kinds of popular toothpaste, dish detergent, hand soap and more.

    While effective at killing bacteria, triclosan also kills your body from the inside out:

    Here’s what Jessie Sholl at Experience Life said about triclosan use:

    “Triclosan is an aggressive antibacterial agent that can promote the growth of drug-resistant bacteria.

    The American Medical Association has found no evidence that these antimicrobials make us healthier or safer, and they’re particularly concerned because they don’t want us overusing antibacterial chemicals — that’s how microbes develop resistance, and not just to these [household antibacterials], but also to real antibiotics that we need.”

    “Other studies have now found dangerous concentrations of triclosan in rivers and streams, where it is toxic to algae. The EPA is currently investigating whether triclosan may also disrupt endocrine (hormonal) function. It is a probable carcinogen. At press time, the agency was reviewing the safety of triclosan in consumer products.”

    4 – Ammonia:

    Another famous cleaning agent with a propensity for causing damage to sensitive body tissue, ammonia can harm the respiratory system and eventually cause the formation of conditions like chronic bronchitis and asthma.

    Ammonia is an irritant, and inhalation of the vapors alone is enough to cause damage to the lungs, throat, and nasal passages.

     Use These Not Those

    While it’s sobering to realize most of the products we use inside the home can lead to severe health conditions, our understanding of chemical interactions with bacteria shows that there are plenty of natural products that can kill bacteria without seriously jeopardizing our health.

    Consider using cleaning products with essential oils like oregano oil, thyme, lemon oil, and more for cleaning around the house.

    These oils in their extract form are strong enough to kill viruses like HIV, but will also leave your home smelling wonderful as a result.
