Scented Candles Cause Cancer

A research made in the University of York in England showed that the scented candles may lead to throat cancer and nasal cancer.

According to this research, limonene molecule, which is used for providing a nice scent to scented candles and cleaning products, causes the formation of formaldehyde, which becomes toxic when it is mixed with other gases in the air.

The researchers emphasized on the fact that formaldehyde causes throat and nose cancer, and they stated that if scented candles are being used, the house must be aired regularly.
