The researchers focused on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at a complete selection of household items. VOCs react with sunlight to form ozone pollution. This escapes into the environment and gets trapped causing contamination in our homes. The scientists said VOCs interact to make particles. These particles may lead to lung damage. Dr McDonald said governments should regulate household products more tightly to reduce their negative impact. He issued a stark warning, stating:”The things I use in the morning to prepare for work are similar to emissions which come out of the tailpipe of my vehicle .”
Scientists say we’re unaware of a massive cause of pollution that is right under our very noses. Household items like toothpaste, shaving cologne, deodorant, foam and furniture polish contain. An air-pollution researcher at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, dr Brian McDonald, conducted research into our homes create pollution. His group was surprised to find that household items now contribute on types of air pollution as automobiles, trucks and other vehicles. Dr McDonald explained that as”the transportation sector gets cleaner, these other resources. . .become more and more important”.
