Mother’s occupational exposure to cleaning products and disinfectants could cause asthma in future children

 Surely heavy exposure at home would also have this effect.  But it would be easier to study what jobs mothers had.

New analysis of data collected in the large international RHINESSA and RHINE studies, raises concern for adverse health effects of cleaning products and disinfectants, even in the next generation. A study led by UiB researchers have found that childhood asthma was more common if the mother had worked in a job with exposure to cleaning products and disinfectants before conception of the child. This may raise our awareness of how we use disinfectants and cleaning products in these times of pandemia.
