Many people are unaware that deodorant can also prove to be dangerous for health. Many people are seen using it indiscriminately. Despite ‘keep out of reach of children’ (keep away from the reach of children) written on most deodorants, often people do not stop their children from using it. In fact, a shocking case has come to light from Britain, where a 14-year-old girl died after inhaling aerosol deodorant. Following the death of their child, parents have warned people about the possible dangers of deodorant and urged caution.
The girl’s name was Georgia Green. Georgia loved sprinkling deodorant on the blanket before sleeping. Because it made him feel good. It was told that he had a cardiac arrest after spraying deodorant. Georgia was completely healthy. He didn’t have any physical problem. Although there was autism. Georgia died in May 2022. Since the death of their daughter, Georgia’s parents are now warning other parents about the potential dangers of using deodorant. Father Paul told that Green liked to sprinkle deodorant on the blanket, because he felt relaxed. At the same time, the British Aerosol Manufacturers Association (BAMA) said that the warning is clearly written on the deodorant.
Parents do not heed ‘Warning’
Georgia’s parents said that many parents buy deodorant for their children without heeding warnings. They do not know how dangerous it can prove to be. The girl’s father Paul said, ‘I do not want anyone else in the country or the world to face the situation that we personally had to face. We do not want our daughter’s death to be in vain.’
Death due to aerosol inhalation
On May 11, 2022, Georgia’s elder brother found her lying unconscious in the bedroom. Paul said that the door of his room was open, so it was not that he died due to suffocation because the room was closed. When Giorgia’s death was investigated, it was found that all this happened due to aerosol inhalation. Georgia’s death certificate also mentions ‘inhalation of aerosol’ instead of ‘deodorant’.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) told that many people have died due to excessive use of deodorant. RoSPA’s Public Health Advisor Ashley Martin said that assuming that deodorants are completely safe and can not pose any danger, this is not the truth. Because inhaling large amounts of aerosol can cause life-threatening complications such as blackout and breathing difficulties, changes in heartbeat, and death.
