Public Health Warning: Fragrance
Public Health Warning
Fragrance chemicals are linked to so many health problems now that they should be banned from indoor environments just like smoking.
” It took decades for the workplace to acknowledge the dangers of smoking and to recognize the deadly effects of exposure to second-hand smoke. Once acknowledged, it was a few more years before the workplace became safe for workers from the dangers of second hand smoke. This paper suggests that fragrance is following the same trajectory”…
Until toxic chemicals are banned from products, signs warning people using the premises should be mandated.
A crude edit from an original bylaw regarding smoking, to show an example of what should be done until bans are in effect. Note: bans or fragrance-free policies would not be necessary if fragrances did not contain so many allergens and toxic chemicals.
Toxic trespass from both smoke and fragrance chemicals can cause serious and disabling health problems for “sensitive” people living in multi-unit housing or working in multi-unit environments. HVAC systems transport air throughout buildings, so policies must usually be universal to be effective.
Do we want this?

The evidence is clear…
Breathing in fragrance chemicals is harmful to your health, harmful to child health, harmful to pet health, harmful to neighbor health, harmful to co-worker health, harmful to everyone’s health.
If we don’t do something about indoor air quality, this could be you.
Fresh, clean air is fragrance-free air!
