According to health consultants Cashins & Associates, inhalation of small particles can cause cardiovascular disease, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory diseases. Nearly 20,000 people die prematurely each year in the United States after being exposed to soot particles.
In addition, soot causes respiratory problems that cause approximately 300,000 asthma attacks and 2 million lost workdays each year.
The soot of scented candles is so fine that it is undetectable in the air.
If you see soot coming out of a candle, turn it off immediately.
Hope this story will raise awareness about the risks of indoor scented candles!
