Daily products source of allergy

The exponential rise of allergies, especially in children, is among other things explained by the amount of aggressive chemical molecules found in everyday products. Cosmetics, hygiene products, household products, carpeting, paint, sometimes an interior fragrance, and often repellents, mosquito repellents, contain synthetic chemical molecules that the body does not know, and to which he didn’t have time to adapt. Consequence: the immune system is deregulated, it can no longer identify the really harmful substances, it overreacts, and it is the allergy. Allergy is a worldwide health problem, it is not very serious, of course, we can live with it. But it makes the bed of many diseases, quite simply because the immune system is weakened, tired, out of order.
