Medical News Summary (summary of medical news story as reported by PR Newswire): The Soap and Detergent Association claims that the media portrayal of a recent study is sending false signals to consumers. The British study claims that the use of cleaning products increases the risk of asthma and wheezing in children. The Association claims that the study was based on a questionnaire which could give misleading results. It believes that cleaning products in fact help to remove asthma triggers such as dust, dust mites, animal dander, insect droppings, mold and mildew. The study itself denies that the results in any way indicate a relationship between the use of cleaning products and wheezing and asthma.
