Landmark study warns home chemicals are linked to a huge range of diseases

Gobal health Chiefs yesterday affirmed that chemicals found in every home may cause breast cancer, asthma, infertility and birth defects (Mail Online, Wednesday, Feb 20 2013).

According to The World Health Organisation, common everyday chemicals have the potential to cause such dangerous health effects that they have suggested a ban may be required to protect future generations.

Phthalates were singled out as posing a particular risk. These chemicals, used as a plastic softening agent, are present in a wide range of household items, from children's and baby's toys to make up and PVC flooring.

Also under suspicion is bisphenol A, which is found in a host of daily items including tin cans and sunglasses.

Roger Martin, Technical Director at Safe Air Quality, said: "We are pleased that the dangerous effects everyday chemicals can have on our health have finally been recognised by such a global authority. Safe Air Quality has seen first hand how these chemicals can affect indoor air quality and cause considerable health problems for many of our clients.

"We would encourage anyone who has concerns about phthalates, bisphenol A or any other indoor pollution in their home or workplace to contact us - we can provide professional advice and indoor air quality testing to determine if you are at risk".
