Answer
Hi Jenny;  I do not get many questions from the Philippines but it looks like you have good schools there.
 The things you mention all can have an effect on your health.  Things added to our foods sometimes cause allergies or other problems.. Household cleaners and pesticides can contain toxic materials that can affect us
