NLM Toxicology and Environmental Health Info
The Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air pollution among the top environmental dangers.
Common cleaning products can contribute to this problem. Immediate effects of exposure to indoor pollutants can include headaches, dizziness, and fatigue, as well as irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, and exacerbated symptoms of asthma and other respiratory illnesses.
Learn what's in these products, their potential health effects, and about safety and handling with the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Household Products Database (HPD).
HPD links over 15,000 consumer brands to health effects from Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) provided by manufacturers and allows scientists and consumers to research products based on chemical ingredients. The database is designed to help answer the following questions:
What are the chemical ingredients and their percentage in specific brands?
Which products contain specific chemical ingredients?
Who manufactures a specific brand? How do I contact this manufacturer?
What are the acute and chronic effects of chemical ingredients in a specific brand?
What other chemical information is available from the National Library of Medicine?
