If you have the habit of lighting mosquito coil every night to wipe out mosquitoes, then hold on! You might as well wipe out yourself!
Mosquitoes = living beings
We humans = living beings
If mosquitoes can get affected from the smoke coming out of a coil, how can you think you and I can manage to stay hale and hearty?
A study conducted by the Indian Chest Research Foundation (ICRF) showed that inhaling the smoke from a mosquito coil in a closed room for 8 hours is equivalent to smoking about a 100 cigarettes.
In another study conducted at the Taiwanese Institute of Medicine, it was found that a staggering 50%of the lung cancer deaths in Taiwan not as a result of cigarette smoke, but mosquito coil.
Pyrethrum is the major constituent of a mosquito coil. This chemical stings the mosquitoes in their eyes and makes them blind. Its working method, if you ask me. This is how it ‘protects’ us from the annoying gnaws of mosquitoes.
The chemical’s long time presence and usage as an insecticide for years, is what makes Pyrethrum trustworthy. But breathing in too much of the chemical can increase the risk of asthma, wheezing and other serious long disorder.
Now that you have heard about the problem, what you want to hear from me are the solutions. Yes! Since I don’t want you to die before your time, I have solutions to the problem which I refer to as alternatives to mosquito coil.
