Researchers, Stanley M. Caress and Anne C. Steinemann released a study in 2009 to examine cases of asthma and sensitivity to chemicals in fragranced products.
The study found that “Among asthmatics, 38% report irritation from scented products, 37.2% report health problems from air fresheners, and 13.6% report their asthma was caused by toxic exposure.” Toxicology and Industrial Health 2009; 25: 71–78 (Asthma and Chemical Hypersensitivity).
