Next 5th of May will be World Asthma Day. It will be a trivial day for most of us and you may think why you should celebrate it!
The fact is that more than ever people are encounter a big health problem that can be generated in our work places or our homes. 5,4 million people in the UK are currently receiving treatment for asthma.
The charity Asthma UK is warning professional cleaning companies as well as the public in general about the chemicals used to clean offices and homes.
Substances like air fresheners, aerosol sprays, certain cleaning chemicals or dust from insects and animals can damage our health and can cause fatal asthma attacks.
Living with asthma is a constant battle to avoid substances that can trigger asthma (such as dust, chemicals, fumes or perfumes). As Asthma UK advises, we can always do our bit by using environmentally friendly products and keeping good levels of hygiene around the house.
