Endangered professions

According to the official list of the German Professional Association, the following professional groups are particularly at risk:

  • Bakers
  • Hairdressers
  • Masseurs
  • Caregivers

In these professions, a person often comes into contact with dusty food chemicals, flavors, and cosmetics. It is not surprising that more than 5,000 cases of “Baker’s asthma” and a further 5,000 cases of allergic skin diseases are reported annually to the Trade Association by professional associations.

I repeat: EVERY year!

In addition to these dangerous professions that have been officially confirmed, I would like to add the following:

  • Perfume Shops Sales Personnel
  • Flight personnel – the captain as well as attendants (air quality in airplanes needs great improvement – and it is not because of the dry air, as is stupidly claimed and justified by airlines!)
  • Any cleaning services (mainly laundries)
  • Restroom attendants
  • Hotel staff
  • and many more

How much more proof is necessary before the legislature prescribes effective, stringent requirements or even better, entirely forbids chemically produced fragrances?
