Babies Exposed To Cleaning Products May Have Increased Asthma Risk

BOSTON (CBS) – New parents often thoroughly clean their homes to reduce their baby’s exposure to germs, but new research suggests cleaning products could actually increase a child’s risk of asthma. Asthma is the most common chronic disease in childhood. A new study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal finds that babies under three months of age living in homes where cleaning products are frequently used were more likely to develop wheezing and asthma by age three. The greatest link was with air fresheners, dusting sprays, hand sanitizers, and oven cleaners. Researchers said babies spend more of their time indoors and are particularly vulnerable to chemical exposure because they breathe fast and often come in contact with household surfaces.

Purpose of Study: Explore the perceptions of primary care physicians (PCPs) from community health care centers (CHCs) in Franklin County, Ohio, regarding factors that contribute to their inability to consistently provide sustainable asthma management services to their uninsured patient population. Primary Practice Setting: Asthmatic patients are not consistently receiving sustainable asthma management in CHCs in Ohio. Primary care physicians in CHCs play a pivotal role in closing health care gaps for asthmatic patients. To minimize the barriers that impede the efforts of PCPs to control asthma for their uninsured pati...

tivitis Committee Abstract Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used throughout the world. They are frequently involved in hypersensitivity reactions, which range from local or mild reactions to systemic and severe reactions. Consequently, it is necessary to perform an exhaustive study of patients in order to make an accurate diagnosis, search for safe procedures in the case of severe reactions, and identify alternative treatment options. Various guidelines and protocols address the management of hypersensitivity to NSAIDs, although these vary widely from country to country. The Committees of A...
