I have been working part time at a restaurant for 3.5 years. Every morning, there will be one person mopping the entire dining area with water mixed in bleach and soap, while I am in the dining area doing some preparations. The air condition is always on to dry the floor. I breathe the bleach three times a week. I wonder if this can cause any health problem for me in the future, although now I have not had any lung damage or difficulty to breathe.

  • You are mixing bleach and soap.This causes a chemical reaction releasing chlorine gas slowly into the air.Chlorine gas can and will eat holes in the small sacks in your lungs that allows oxygen to get from the air you breathe to the blood in your body.Continuing to do this WILL cause problems later on in life if not put you in the hospital soon.Do not EVER mix bleach with ANYTHING.It says this on the bottle...

  • Stress and health problem are correlated to each other. A burst of stress can prevent the thinking ability of a person. You can find yourself unable to concentrate if you are in stress. If you observe through medical explanation, our frequent response of stress increases molecules which are detrimental for our heart. These are the bad form of cholesterol which is known as LDL (low- density lipoproteins). As the stress delays the clearance of these fats, their accumulation entails atherosclerosis and other heart disorders to many people.The most evidential symptoms of stress are increased rate in palpitation, perspiration and blood pressure in the body. And very surprisingly people who indulge in extreme physical activities and exercises, exemplify the physical stress. So if you are suffering from weak heart or coronary blockage, these physical stresses can be more hazardous for your health.phlebotomy training
