In the foods we eat, the air we breathe, cleaning chemicals, our feelings and practically any surface that we can see or touch, we can find chemistry in daily life. Here's a look at daily chemical examples. Some popular chemistry may be obvious but we might be shocked by others. Our body is composed of chemical compounds which are element combinations.

We can be sure that the culprit is everyday chemistry. Soap is a chemical produced for a very long time by humans. Mixing ashes and animal fat allows you to form crude soap.

The talk also includes food, beverages, lactose intolerance, smoking and sleep chemistry.
