Chemical Fabric Softeners
Are you bothered by chemical fabric softeners? My friend avoids the isle altogether as we shop near the laundry isle. Those fumes can cause burning skin, respiratory irritation, anxiety attacks, nervous system disorders and irritability. Those are just the short-term reactions that you can feel. Another concern is the long-term effects on your liver, pancreas and gastrointestinal tract from toxic chemicals such as benzyyl acetate, A-termpineol, camphor, ethyl acetate, formaldehyde and more. Go put any one of these chemicals into scorecard.org’s database of toxins to learn about the scary health effects.
