Many household cleaners contain toxic chemicals. These chemicals may cause short-term and long-term health problems when you use them.
Children are often more vulnerable to chemical exposure during developmental stages, and certain chemicals may interfere with the development of their neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. Main routes of exposure: eating, drinking, breathing, and touching.
Younger children have higher respiratory rates than adults, therefore they absorb more air contaminants per unit of weight, meaning they experience a higher inhaled dose.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside a typical home is 200–500 percent more polluted than the air outside mainly due to toxic household cleaning products. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!
