Incense Worse Than Cigarettes?


“Clearly, there needs to be greater awareness and management of the health risks associated with burning incense in indoor environments.”  Good to know.

A recently published study from China has found that: “In vitro assessments showed that the genotoxicity of the particulate matter from one particular incense sample was higher than the reference cigarette sample with the same dose.”

It would be interesting to know to what extent this applies to traditional, natural sources of incense as opposed to highly processed forms.
