Washing clothes with ammonia will never cause lung cancer
Thanks for writing in to us.
I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.
1. There is sufficient evidence that ammonia does not cause cancer in humans. Research has been done by health authorities in the US and they find that ammonia is not a cancer causing agent.
2. Washing clothes with ammonia causes slight exposure and is not considered dangerous to humans. Memory loss is likely to be from his age and not due to ammonia.
3. Exposure to ammonia when working in factories where there is leak can cause mild side effects.
Hope your query is answered.
