 Does incense and liquid used to repel mosquitoes affect the lungs?

Mosquito control becomes a big challenge in summer season. The sound of mosquitoes disturbs sleep, if they bite, there is a risk of various diseases. Diseases like malaria and dengue are spread by mosquito bites.

Although it is best to use mosquito nets to avoid mosquitoes, we also use quills, incense, ointments, and sprays instead. But many people do not realize that these materials are harmful to health.

Mosquito coils contain pyrethrin pesticides, which cause lung damage.

Incense used to repel mosquitoes, smoke comes out of quills. When it is lit inside the room, if there is no ventilator and no place for air, the smoke enters the body. which affects the mucocilia that protect the lungs from infection. Because of this, the elements, gas and carbon particles in the smoke get stuck in the lungs.

People who smoke or smoke mosquito repellent for a long time are more likely to develop COPD asthma. Being in contact with such smoke for a long time can also cause lung cancer.

Similarly, pesticides are used in sprays and liquids. Some petroleum products are also mixed. It can cause a lot of health problems.

Which is more harmful in quill and liquid?

Both things used to repel mosquitoes are harmful. However, liquid is comparatively less harmful than quill.

In a study conducted in India 10 years ago about incense and liquid to repel mosquitoes, it was found that incense had a greater effect.

How to use?

If possible, it is better to use other materials to repel mosquitoes. But if the condition of using other materials is not convenient, then there is a compulsion to use incense and liquid. But when using these materials, a place for smoke must be kept.

Do not light the door or window completely and do not use these materials even during the night. Also, incense or liquid should never be lit near the head.

The ointment used to repel mosquitoes should be applied only before going to bed and should not be put on the mouth after applying it.
