Death by “Fragrance”
Problems with fragrance? You’re not alone. Many migraine and multiple chemical sensitivity people fall ill when being exposed to fragrance. Many people who have the MTHFR gene mutation have fragrance sensitivity.
Are fragrances making us sick? Answer-YES!
Synthetic fragrance assault
Why go fragrance free? There are excitotoxins in fragrance!
“Toluene (methyl benzene) was detected in fragrance samples and collected by the EPA in 1991. Toluene is a ‘hazardous waste.’ It is flammable and volatile, it attacks the central nervous system, blood, liver, kidneys, eyes, and skin, and it serves as an asthma trigger….Methylene chloride is also found in pesticides and septic tank cleaners.”
Dryer sheets/Laundry soap
Dryer Sheets Cause Hormone Imbalance, Neurotoxicity, Respiratory Problems, & Even Cancer
“Most commercial dryer sheets are loaded with all sorts of toxic chemicals including Benzyl Acetate, Benzyl Alcohol, Chloroform and Linalool; none of which are good for your health. In addition to all the chemicals that end up on your skin, when heated, the fumes are also toxic. These toxins go straight to their brain’s most sensitive neurological centers and wreck havoc.”
Exposure at work
Fragrance and employers. Employers need to be aware that allergies to fragrance or multiple chemical sensitivities can be disabilities under ADA, the Americans with Disabilities Act.
