FRECKLES' PICK 

Cleaning Is As Bad For You As Smoking A Pack A Day

Put down those cleaning products because science says cleaning your house is bad for your health. Get this - researchers warn that it’s as bad for your lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day for 20 years.

Breathing in the chemicals in cleaning products raises the risk for asthma by 43% and scientists say they damage to the lining of the airways and can affect the way they work long-term. Those facing the biggest risk are professional cleaners and women, but somehow men seem to be unaffected.

“Cleaning chemicals very likely cause substantial lung damage,” explains Oistein Svanes from Bergen University in Norway. “Think of particles from cleansers meant for floors, not lungs, and maybe it’s no surprise.”

And as great as it would be to use this research as an excuse to give up cleaning our homes, most of us don’t want to live in filth. So scientists suggest swapping the cleaning chemicals for microfiber cloths and water to clean instead.

Slain Teacher Told Fiance What To Say At Funeral

Scott Beigel, was shot while protecting students during the Parkland shooting. Although what he did was heroic, he didn’t want to be called a hero. During his funeral Scott fiancee, Gwen Gossler, told mourners that they were once watching news coverage of another school shooting when he made the comment. “Promise me if this ever happens to me, you will tell them the truth — tell them what a jerk I am, don’t talk about the hero stuff,” Gossler said Beigel teased.“OK, Scott, I did what you asked,’’ Gossler continued tearfully. “Now I can tell the truth. You are an amazingly special person. You are my first love and my soulmate.’’
