We need to also be aware that perfumes - in laundry products and in just about every product now are also asthma triggers, and they are also neurotoxins and carcinogens.

Former nurse Betty Bridges has done extensive research on the toxicity of modern synthetic scents which began replacing more natural scents in the 1980s. (see her no-frills website Frangranced Products Information Network)

The same companies that make perfumes and pesticides (another cause and trigger of asthma) have subsidiary pharmaceutical companies that profit from allergy and asthma medications.

Dallas air is terrible with high rates of Asthma or now what we call Reactive Airway Disease. You add all the scented products: air freshner, laundry soap, dryer sheets, extra scents to add to washer, scented room deodorizers.
