Conventional household cleaners can kill you with increased risk of fatal lung disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a life-threatening condition that results in obstructed airflow and difficulty breathing. There are two main illnesses associated with COPD: Chronic bronchitis, which affects more than 10 million Americans, and emphysema, which over 4.7 million Americans have been diagnosed with. While the most common cause of COPD is smoking and second-hand exposure to cigarette smoke, other causes include pollution, toxic fumes, exposure to certain types of dust, and long-term asthma.

Now, a study led by Dr. Orianne Dumas of the French National Institute of Health, has found that certain cleaning chemicals can also dramatically increase the risk of COPD, with bleach fumes, in particular, linked to a staggering 32 percent increase in risk.
