Breathing in Toxins
A lot of people, especially those, who are using logs and firewood to create a beautiful aesthetic and create a warm atmosphere tend to forget that these fire woods can cause pollution because once the wood starts to burn it releases toxins in the air which people are breathing in, a higher level of this toxin can actually be harmful for people’s health and can cause various cardiovascular diseases and in some extreme cases, cancer as well, so make sure that you are either very careful about the usage of your fireplace or just invest in an electronic one because that will work just fine in providing heat and a cozy atmosphere.
