your body may be accumulating QACs. here’s why that’s a problem.
Is your body accumulating QACs? Hard to answer that question without knowing what QACs are, but chances are you have them around without even realizing it.
QACs are quaternary ammonium compounds. Still not sure if you have them in your body? You might if you use store-bought sanitizers, disinfectants, and antimicrobials or visit places that do. QACs include a variety of dangerous chemicals used in these types of products.
Why is this a problem?
A recent study published in Environmental Science and Technology shows that concentrations of QACs in the human body have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. This increase is possibly related to the related rise in dangerous disinfection practices in nearly every environment we spend time in — home, work, school, retail stores, gyms, doctors’ offices, and more.
While sanitizers and disinfectants containing QACs do kill viruses and bacteria, specific QACs can bioaccumulate in our bodies, causing a variety of negative effects, including cancer, respiratory harm, genetic mutations, decreased fertility, and increased antibiotic resistance. Their negative impact on the immune system reduces resistance to disease, making people even more vulnerable.
Here’s the good news:
Bioaccumulation can be reversed when exposure is eliminated. Even small changes over time can make a huge difference and decrease your body burden.
