New Study Reveals Exposure to Ethanolamines results in increased incidence of asthma

A recent study by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, published in the Journal of Occupational Medicine London reveals that people who clean professionally have a higher incidence of asthma. What does this have to do with hairstylists? Well the chemical in many cleaning products called ethanolamine is what is causing the asthma with repeated exposure. Ethanolamine is also the ingredient in the nonammonia haircolors. It has an odorless fume, yet it still affects the body by weakening lung function. How many of you stylists out there have asthma?
