Candles could cause cancer
Fumes from burning candles may be hazardous, claim scientists
Fumes from the most common form of candle wax – paraffin wax – can be harmful and even cause cancer, a study suggests.
Researchers from South Carolina State University found that in unventilated rooms,paraffin candles emit chemicalssuch as toluene, which can cause dizziness, and benzene, acarcinogenfound in tobacco smoke.
According to reports in the Telegraph, these chemicals build up over time and can causehealth problems such as asthma and allergies. In some cases they can add to the risk of life threatening diseases such ascancer.
Amid Hamidi, co-author of the study, said: ‘An occasionalparaffin candleand its emissions will not likely affect you. But lighting many paraffin candles every day for years or lighting them frequently in an unventilated bathroom around a tub, for example, may cause problems.’
Dr. Hamidi advised opening windows when burningparaffin candlesto keep spaceswell ventilated. The study included tests onbeeswax and soy candles, which were found to be safer as they did not produce theharmful chemicals.
While the majority ofcandleson sale in the high street are made fromparaffin wax,beeswax and soy candlesare still available.
