Candles aren’t just for lighting when the power goes out. They set the mood in the home. There is something calming about the soft light of a flickering candle. Scented candles have also gained popularity as aides in aromatherapy. However, there is much more to candles than many people realize.
Candles are made from hydrocarbons. When these are melted as a result of the burning of the candles, they release fumes that are similar to what diesel engines release. These fumes include toxins such as toluene and benzene, both of which have been shown to be carcinogenic. It is therefore not surprising that so many people today complain of headaches. These fumes have also been shown to cause serious conditions such as lung cancer.
In recent years, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has issued recommendations for limiting exposure to these fumes. According to the organization, exposure to paraffin fumes can lead to the development of tumors in the liver and kidneys. This is based on studies on lab animals.
People with asthma are at a higher risk of being affected by exposure to paraffin wax fumes. The fumes have been shown to increase difficulties in breathing. In fact, exposure to the fumes is believed to be as dangerous as secondary smoking.
Get Rid of Toxins
One would think having a regular air conditioning system ought to do the trick. The problem with traditional air conditioning systems is that they simply recycle the air within the home. Gaseous pollutants such as toluene and benzene cannot be trapped by even the finest HEPA filter. This means that these gaseous toxins will continue being circulated and increase your risk of developing complications as a result of exposure.
EZ Breathe offers a solution that will ensure that your home is safe from gaseous toxins. The ventilation system works by pumping polluted air out of the home. Clean fresh air from the outside environment is then pumped into the home to replace the polluted air. The result is clean unpolluted air.
The EZ Breathe system works to purify air throughout the home and not just a single room. This means that toxic fumes have no chance of escaping to other rooms where they can pose a threat to the health of your household.
The system gets rid of gaseous as well as particulate pollutants. You can be sure of providing your family with a safe environment.
