SOME FACTS ABOUT THE AIR YOU BREATH

SICK BUILDING SYNDROME
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified Indoor Air Pollution as a major Health Problem. A recent study revealed a secret that many people do not know that the air inside offices and homes is often more polluted than the outside air. Since well-insulated air-conditioned buildings (with increasing use of recycle air, and wall-to-wall carpeting) tend to restrict the in and out flow of air. The air we breathe often holds an alarmingly high concentration of hazardous germs and pollutants.

Over one thousand pollutants are known to have plagued indoor air of which over sixty are carcinogenic. These pollutants arte known to cause a phenomenon called “SICK BUILDING SYNDROME” which is also one of the main health risks existing today.

ELECTRO-POLLUTION
Here’s a surprise; you’re sitting in front of a clean air thief right now. These thieves include computer monitors, televisions, and air ducts, etc. they all deplete the healthy charged air particles nature gives you. If you’ve ever felt tired for no good reasons, this may be why.

Strong new evidence suggests; that air pollution emitted by power plants and vehicles raises the risk of lung diseases, according to a study in the journal of the American Medical Association.
Virus, fungus, bacteria and hundreds of other germs are carried in the air at all times. If inhaled into the lungs, germs can cause cold, flu, pneumonia and other respiratory infections. When these germs lodge in your lungs, your breathing can be disrupted and you can become ill American Lung Association.

Indoors air pollution is wide spread; you are more likely to get sick from pollution in your home and office than from pollution in the air outside- American Lung Association.

The immediate effects of polluted air on people are usually so small that they are not noticed with the first symptoms, but their effects are cumulative and may not become apparent until after weeks or months of continuing exposure.

Apart from the commonly diseases or symptoms of heavily polluted environment,
Bronchial or respiratory diseases such as common cold, cough, influenza etc. research has shown that high volume of noxious positive ions in the air and their consequent intake causes changes in our bio-chemical balance.

IN THE OFFICE: Noxious positive ions result in heavy Air traffic (dust storms) around computer screens and is experienced as irritation, drying of the skin & eyes nose & mucous membranes in the throat commonly known as “OFFICE DISEASE
AT HOME: One very good example is surplus Serotonin (Neurotransmitter) released into the blood plasma, which results in:

  • Higher sensitivity to pain
  • Higher sensitivity to Aero-allergies
  • Usually fatigue and hypertension
  • Emotional irritability
  • Dullness of wit

Using an air-cleaning device, such as air purifiers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers, may prevent all these.

So if you don’t have an air purifier, you and your family’s lungs are the air purifier!!

TIPS FOR RELATIVE AIR HUMIDITY
To rid your home and office of uncomfortable damaging moisture, get dehumidifier

HOMELAND SECURITY ON BIOTERRORISM:
The United States Department of Homeland Security suggests the use of HEPA Air Purifier (with micro ban features) as part of an overall program for fighting dangerous Microscopic Airborne Contaminants that could be released in a terrorists attack.

NOSOCOMIA INFECTION  (Hospital Acquired Infection)>
Hospitals are already reservoirs of (airborne) diseases;  in the well publicised Ebola outbreaks it was hospitals the virus burned through first.When the real epidemics come, hospitals will be overrun and soon become the epicenters.When disease is airborne you need to be protected - you need an effective Air purifier.
