Blog: Desinfectantes más seguros en estos tiempos de coronavirus

Desde ase mucho tiempo que hemos destacado el mensaje que hoy en día, en nuestra sociedad, estamos desinfectando mucho con químicos que son innecesariamente potentes. La práctica de desinfectar el hogar ha, generalmente, demostrado de poco a ningún beneficio de salud y hemos expresado nuestras preocupaciones que los químicos en los desinfectantes están causando daños a la salud. Pero siempre hemos dicho – que en circunstancias excepcionales – como cuando se sabe de la presencia enfermedades contagiosas o para la gente con sistemas inmunológicos comprometidos, hay tiempo y lugares apropiados para desinfectar. Y ahora tenemos la pandemia de Coronavirus – una circunstancia excepcional. Entonces, ¿Qué hacemos? Y, ¿Cómo lo hacemos de manera segura? Read More

Blog: Safer Disinfecting at home in the times of Coronavirus

We have long been emphasizing the message that in our society today, disinfecting is largely being overdone, with chemicals that are unnecessarily strong. The practice of disinfecting at home has generally demonstrated little to no health benefit and we have expressed concern that the harsh disinfectant chemicals are actually causing health harms. But we have always maintained – that in exceptional circumstances – like known presence of contagious disease in a location, or for people with compromised immune systems, there can be an appropriate time and place for targeted disinfecting. And now we have the Coronavirus pandemic – an exceptional circumstance indeed. So, what do we do? And how can we do it safely? Read More
