Teen 'air detective' warns of dangers of using fresheners

A teenage campaigner has warned that automated air fresheners could be emitting harmful levels of cancer and asthma-causing chemicals in our homes. Tom Hunt, 14, from Chesham, Bucks, has been conducting research on indoor air quality and automatic air fresheners during lockdown. Earlier this year, with the help of a monitor attached to his pet labrador Baggy, Tom found air pollution levels were far worse at child level than those recorded in official figures. His findings were widely publicised and led Tom being given an 'Atmotube Pro' air pollution monitor to investigate air quality indoors.
