Will Lysol and Clorox Be The Next Roundup Class-Action Lawsuit?
What You Didn't Know About Common
Similarly, recent studies have emerged showing how common home disinfectants could also be causing more harm than good. A majority of popular household cleaners contain chemicals called “quaternary ammonium compounds” or QACs (3), which have been linked to the development of adverse health effects:
Skin issues or contact dermatitis(4, 5)
Triggering or causing asthma(6)
Blindness & mucous membrane injuries(3, 7)
Oral and gastrointestinal injuries(7)
Infertility and endocrine disruptions(8, 9)
Cancer and organ failure (10, 11)
An Unseen Threat to Children
Some of the most alarming findings come from a 2013 EPA report detailing how QACs pose a serious threat to the health and development of fetuses and young children (10, 11).
During early childhood, growth is rapid and organs, especially the brain, are still developing. QAC exposure can hinder the normal development of these vital body parts and functions, ultimately affecting the child’s health. Children have years or decades to develop illnesses caused by early exposures to toxic chemicals – with researchers estimating that 5% of childhood cancer and 30% of childhood asthma are related to chemical exposures (11).
Finding a Safer Alternative
Knowing these risks, we made it our mission to find a safer and cleaner alternative to these dangerous household products. Finally, after years of research, we developed MedImmune Health: a line of eco-friendly disinfectants specially formulated to effectively kill 99.99% of germs, viruses and bacteria – all while being safe for children, pets, and families.
It works by targeting key amino acids found in the protein wall of microorganisms, preventing them from mutating or reproducing, and consequently eliminates them altogether (12, 13). Because these amino acids play a crucial role in all living systems, including microbes, no organism tested has proven resistant against MedImmune Health (12).
However, unlike QACs in traditional household cleaners, MedImmune Health is a far safer alternative.
1. Selectively reactive: While our solution rapidly kills micron-sized organisms (like viruses and bacteria), it does not penetrate larger cells or living tissues (12), making MedImmune Health safe for pets, kids and families.
2. Eco-friendly: When exposed to sunlight, MedImmune Health breaks down easily into water, oxygen and common table salt (14). It does not produce toxic or harmful residues or byproducts which makes it safe for the environment.
3. Non-carcinogenic: Our main active ingredient is non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic in humans according to the assessment of the CDC (15).
