Do corrosive chemicals and cleaning agents cause reduced brain function ?
Dear Doctor: I work with cleaning products once a week for a couple of hours and as you know cleaning products contain many corrosive chemicals that can affect lung and other respiratory issues. My question though, deals with the brain . Can working with such chemicals affect the brain in terms of function? I am a pre-med student and absolutely don t want this to affect my studies, I can stop working there, but do you think there could have been already an effect taken place? Thank you
Exposure to chemicals in a place where their is no enough oxygen, will surely lead to many respiratory dis order.e.g cyanosis.My advice for you is to have enough cross ventilation so that the brian will have enough oxygen supply.
