The chemicals used in the manufacture of some household products are being linked to the emergence of asthma attacks and death in the country, a study has found.
Key points:The research by University College London (UCL) researchers suggests that a combination of chemicals used to make household products can be linked to an increase in asthma attacksNew research has found that these chemicals are linked with an increase of asthma incidents and deaths in the United KingdomThe research, led by Dr. Ian Watson, a professor of environmental and occupational health at UCL, found that certain chemicals found in household products including petrol, diesel, petrolatum, and petrol and diesel fuel have been linked to a rise in the number of asthma cases in the years to 2016.
The research was carried out by UCL researchers who also looked at cases of asthma from 2008 to 2014.
According to the research, the chemicals found to be responsible for the increase in cases of the disease include ethylbenzene, 2-ethylhexylbenzoate, benzene, benzoic acid, methylhexane, methyl benzoate and propylbenzylamine.
“We found that there was an association between the use of these chemicals and an increase and a corresponding increase in the risk of developing asthma attacks,” Dr Watson told Reuters Health.
“The chemicals we found were most strongly associated with an increased risk of asthma, as they had the greatest impact on asthma in children,” he added.
“So our findings support the notion that these compounds are associated with asthma.”
“It’s a very complicated process,” said Dr Watson.
“In the past, when we’ve looked at this area, it has been fairly straightforward.
There has been some evidence that people have been using chemicals that are potentially dangerous and we’ve identified them and put them on a chemical list, but we’ve never looked at them individually and made any systematic analysis of how they affect asthma.”
The study, published in the British Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, looked at more than 1,000 people with asthma and found that people who used more than 20 chemicals were more likely to develop asthma compared to people who didn’t use these chemicals.
“These chemicals are not only used by people in our environment, but also in other parts of the world,” Dr John Coates, a research associate at the UCL Department of Health, told Reuters.
“If we look at it in this context, there are two important things to keep in mind,” he said.
“Firstly, it’s important to look at the chemicals that cause the asthma in the first place and secondly, if the chemicals are being used in such a way that the risk is not being taken into account, then that risk can’t be controlled.”
To do that, we need to look more broadly at all chemicals in our environments, as well as at how we’re actually using them.””
There are other chemicals that have been found to have asthma-causing effects and we need research to look into these other chemicals as well,” he continued.”
As we move forward in the field of asthma research, we’ll be doing a lot more work with our international partners to understand the mechanisms by which these chemicals may be affecting our health.
“The research also found that a group of chemicals was the most strongly linked to increasing the risk in children, particularly those with asthma.”
Children have been shown to be particularly susceptible to these chemicals because they have lower levels of the immune system and because they are more susceptible to the effects of a combination or combination of environmental exposures,” Dr Coates said.
He also noted that although some of the chemicals used by the public to make products are used in other countries, this is not necessarily the case.”
There is no such thing as a single country-wide toxic chemicals list,” he explained.”
It could be that there is a particular chemical that’s being used across the world, and that may be associated with the increased risk.
“Dr Watson said that while the increase of the number and severity of asthma outbreaks is worrying, it is not as bad as it might seem.”
Asthma attacks are rising and they are happening in people who were never exposed to a toxic chemical, so it’s not as serious as it would seem,” he told Reuters health.”
They have not been affected by the chemicals themselves and it is certainly not associated with being exposed to other toxins.
“The UCL team, however, are continuing their research to find out what chemicals are most likely to be causing the increased cases of health problems in the US and elsewhere.”
It’s a bit like looking at a tree and not knowing what it’s all made of.” “
The problem is that we have so little information about how these chemicals affect our health.
It’s a bit like looking at a tree and not knowing what it’s all made of.”
“We need to understand more about
