Improper use of fungicides is harmful to your health.
According to media reports, many pregnant women and women in South Korea suffer from unexplained pneumonia, 9 of them died. The local health department found that these patients have the habit of using humidifiers and adding fungicides when adding water. It is suspected that these fungicides cause them.A lung injury has occurred.
I don’t know when various fungicides and disinfectants have entered every corner of our urban family life.
Do we really need to be “clean”?
Qiu Zhenwen, deputy director of the Pharmacy Department of the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, reminded that the improper use of fungicides and disinfectants is harmful to health.
[Disinfecting water mopping the floor]Ms. Wang’s 3-year-old baby is sick from childhood and often goes to the hospital.
What makes Ms. Wang very depressed is that in order to make the child less sick, she pays special attention to family health. The bowl of spoon used by the child is disinfected separately. Needless to say, the floor of the house is towed with disinfectant water every day to prevent the child from crawling on the ground.When stained with bacteria.
Even so carefully, why are children always sick?
Expert comment: The family is not a hospital. Unless there are patients with infectious diseases at home, it is not necessary to disinfect them in such a large way.
Especially for children, their immunity is like “forces”, and they should always participate in training.
If the home is too clean, the child’s immune system will not be exercised, so that when he goes out to contact with the germs, the immune system immediately surrenders, so he will often get sick.
Children 0 to 3 years old is an important stage of the development of the immune system. The family may wish to “dirty” a little, let the children touch the pets, play with the soil, exercise for the immune system, and avoid becoming allergic in the future.
[Washing clothes and disinfecting water]Many families with children, in order to avoid the germs “walking the streets”, the clothes of adults and children should be washed separately, and the underwear and outerwear should be washed separately.
Some mothers feel that doing so will add a lot of work, will wash all the clothes together, add disinfectant water in the last procedure of washing.
Some brands of laundry detergent have also seen this market, and will directly add fungicides and disinfectant water inside, claiming that the laundry liquid can be washed together with underwear.
Expert Comments: There are several problems to be aware of when taking laundry or disinfectant.
One is the concentration problem. If the concentration is too high, it may damage the clothes.
Second, the problem of residue, using disinfectant or fungicide to wash clothes, must pay attention to rinsing clean, if there is residue, the clothes will cause irritation or even damage to the skin when worn, it is not worth the candle.
If it is not just returned from a crowded public place such as an infected area or a train station, there is no need to disinfect the clothes, and normal washing is sufficient.
[Using bactericidal shower gel]A shower gel advertisement is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people: when they catch the handle on the bus and touch the arm of others, countless germs are instantly “transferred” to our skin.
It seems that you must use a bactericidal shower gel when you go home from work, otherwise it will endanger your health and pose a threat to your family’s health.
Is it really?
Expert comment: Any fungicides need to be in contact with the disinfecting object for a certain period of time.
We may wash away the shower gel after a few seconds, but it is difficult to play a role in sterilization.
Besides, the skin is the most stubborn barrier of our body. If it is not damaged, it is very difficult for the germ to break through this line of defense.
[Use mouthwash when you go home]When you come back from abroad, Mr. Wang has developed the habit of using mouthwash and encourages his family to return home from the outside. The first thing is to gargle with mouthwash.
He believes that this can kill the bacteria in the mouth and reduce the chance of illness.
Expert comment: Mouthwash often contains inefficient fungicides. Westerners pay more attention to oral hygiene. The use of mouthwash can reduce the occurrence of oral odor.
However, in the prevention of “disease from the mouth”, mouthwash is difficult to play a big role.
In addition, the use of mouthwash should pay attention to the concentration control, the concentration is too high will stimulate the oral mucosa.
