1 in 12 people now has asthma, according to the CDC. Of those who have asthma, over half have had an asthma attack.
If you’re one of the many people living with asthma, then you probably already know the importance of taking your asthma medication, carrying a rescue inhaler, having an Asthma Action Plan, and avoiding your asthma triggers. You probably also know that dust, pollens, pet dander, smoke, and molds are among the most common asthma triggers.
What you may not know are these five hidden, but still dangerous asthma triggers:
Sunscreens containing benzophenone, octocrylene, or PABA can set off allergic reactions in some people, triggering an asthma attack.
2. Plastic Water Bottles
Bisphenol A (or BPA as it’s commonly known) is an industrial chemical used in the making of certain plastic items, including some water bottles. Exposure to BPA can increase a child’s likelihood of developing asthma, according to a study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
3. Antibacterial Soap
Antibacterial soaps contain a synthetic pesticide known as triclosan, which can trigger asthma in some people. Fortunately, ordinary soaps work just as well.
Many spices can cause allergic reactions and trigger asthma attacks in some people. Ones to watch out for include coriander, cumin, dill, paprika, pepper, poppy seeds, and saffron.
Oil-based paints can release gas and chemicals even when they’re dry. Fortunately, latex based paints and paints with a Green Seal certification are safer.
