Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Detergents contain hazardous chemicals. It can irritate our skin and cause eczema. Some people may even get contact dermatitis. When they are ingested, it damages our mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Perfumes and body sprays contain chemicals. When they are inhaled, they irritate the mucosal surface of the respiratory tract leading to asthma and allergic rhinitis. Processed food like sausages are harmful to the digestive system and may predispose to colon cancer if ingested regularly over a long time. Canned food also contain chemicals that are carcinogenic. Air fresheners contain chemicals that are harmful to the kidneys and lungs. Some may affect reproductive functions also.
