Research Unveils Surprising Connection Between Hand Sanitisers and Brain Health

With the onset of COVID-19 in the world in late 2019, the use of hand sanitisers, wipes and soaps went skyrocketing. Recently, research has revealed the deadly effects of using too much use of sanitisers on brain health.

During the period of lockdowns in multiple phases, people adopted the habit of sanitising their hands multiple times throughout the day to be on the safer side.

 The sale of hand sanitisers went skyrocketing. The habit of using sanitisers continues as there are multiple new brands selling hand sanitisers and marketing them. However, the adverse effects of using too much sanitiser have remained in the dark.

According to a recent study on brain cells, chemicals found in disinfectants that cling to clothing and furnishings harm the brain's supporting cells. In the crucial phases of organ development, damage is more noticeable.

In Ohio, at Case Western Reserve University, research was conducted. After carefully examining samples, molecular biologist Erin Cohn and her team of researchers discovered 1823 compounds of unclear toxicity.

Two dangerous chemical types that prevent oligodendrocyte cell mutation have been discovered. In the worst circumstances, these substances have also been shown to destroy cells.
