Mother’s warning: Scented candles are harmful to your baby’s health

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.

Experts recommend regularly cutting candle wicks and not letting them burn for more than a few hours at a time to prevent the spread of soot.

If you see soot coming out of a candle, turn it off immediately.

Fortunately, everything ends well for Meghan and her son. She has not noticed anything since the incident, and now Jimmy is a healthy little one and a half year old.

But Meghan says that from now on, she will read the warning labels on the candles very carefully!

Hope this story will raise awareness about the risks of indoor scented candles!
