Wearing deodorant or peeling an ORANGE 'can pollute office air and cause workers to suffer with fatigue and headaches'

  • Scientists rigged four open-place offices with thousands of sensors
  • Chemicals emitted by personal products were 10-20 times higher than outside
  • Orange compounds mix with ozone to form tiny particles that enter the lungs


Wearing deodorant to the office may contribute to indoor air pollution, research suggests.

Scientists from Purdue University rigged four open-place offices with thousands of sensors to monitor for indoor air contaminants. They found chemicals emitted by antiperspirants, make-up and hairspray reached levels that are up to 20 times higher than when outside. Peeling an orange released monoterpenes, which mix with ozone to form particles that may bury inside the lungs, the scientists warn. Even volatile organic compounds released by breathing were found to linger in the air long after the workers had gone home. The scientists fear a build-up of air contaminants could trigger fatigue, headaches and irritation of the airways, if offices are not properly ventilated.

'We know poor indoor air quality in office environments can inversely affect the health and wellbeing of office workers,
' study author Dr Brandon Boor said. 'Elevated levels of indoor air pollutants and stale air can cause fatigue, irritation of the airways and headaches. 'We want to provide better air quality for office workers to improve their productivity.'

'Our preliminary results suggest people are the dominant source of volatile organic compounds in a modern office environment,' Dr Boor said.

Much of this is just because of whining crybaby snowflakes out there who love to bitch.

But, all of us have been around people wearing perfume that is so strong that it makes our eyes water and irritates the sinuses. We have a no cologne rule at work. But deodorant isn't strong enough to be irritating nor is peeling an orange. That's just getting to be ridiculous?

You can ask my co workers. Just don't be surprised when the mentioning of my name causes a look of terror on their faces.
