Melaleuca Product Research and Reviews

Natural Insect Repellent

Medline Plus warns that breathing or swallowing DEET bug spray can cause poisoning. And even pyrethrins bug sprays can cause problems. We also learn that DEET is especially dangerous to small children.

Special precautions are advised when products containing DEET are used on kids. Low doses should be used sparingly, and not used on kids' hands or face. The product should be applied in an open area to avoid breathing it in. And a child's skin should be washed with soap and water after coming indoors. The clothing the child wore when DEET was applied should be laundered before it is worn again.

Stressful events, such as a high fever, infection, malnutrition, or excessive dieting can cause severe hair loss six weeks to three months after the event. Hair loss is also a symptom of several autoimmune diseases.

Allergies and COPD

According to the American Lung Association, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) causes serious long-term disability and early death and is the third leading cause of death in the United States.

People with asthma or COPD have airways that make them more sensitive to dust, mold, pet dander, chemical household products, and more.

You might think that this awful disease is caused by smoking, and yes smoking is a terrible risk factor, but scientists are finding that the roots for developing COPD can go way back, long before lighting that first addictive cigarette.
