Which various chemicals are contained in the cleaning products that we normally use in our homes for cleaning? Do cleaning products have a negative impact on our health?

I will happily provide the answers to these as well as other questions in this article!
All our lives we have been accustomed to using common cleaning products we are all familiar with through various ads and TV commercials. What is however not mentioned in the ads, is the fact that many, or most of these products contain substances that cause various diseases and health complications. Our household, after using these products undoubtedly looks great and clean (but only seemingly as the bacteria become resistant to the products over time), but in the end, by constantly using these products, we are constantly living in a toxic and for us and our health dangerous environment. Here are a few examples of what the cleaning products, we normally use, can contain.
