Web Desk: Experts suggested people to use smallest amount of deodorant and shampoo because these compounds react in air to produce particles known as PM2.5. Studies revealed that it could cause as much air pollution as cars.

These particles can also cause breathing problems and lead to 29,000 premature deaths in the UK alone every year.
