Are air fresheners dangerous?

I hate stinky, chemical air "fresheners" so I was particularly pleased today when I saw this story in the Chronicle Web Link about environmental groups petitioning the EPA and the Consumer Product Safety Commission to test and regulate these products.
The dangerous chemicals found in some of the air fresheners that were tested harm not only asthmatics and people with delicate lungs, but also are linked to cancer and reproductive harm.
I have a relative whose house reeks of multiple air fresheners, so now I just have to figure out a subtle way to show her this article.
