Why Does Clean Air Matter?
For most people, this question sounds like one that does not need to be asked. We all want to live healthier lives, and things such as clean air and water contribute to that goal. However, by asking why clean air matters, we can learn how much of an impact breathing dirty air matters to our health. Air is a requirement of the trillions of cells that comprise our body. The World Health Organization states that breathing clean air helps reduce the risk of heart disease, lung cancer, stroke, and respiratory diseases.
Air pollution usually causes health to deteriorate slowly over a period of time where it may go unnoticed. Research has shown that air pollution has a big impact on our health. Especially the health of the elderly and children. Those who already suffer from respiratory issues such as asthma are strongly impacted. Some people have compared the effects of air pollution and loss of healthy years during life to obesity, lack of exercise, and infectious diseases.
How Does Air Filtration Help?
Indoor air pollutants are made of mold, dander, pollen, volatile organic compounds, dust, asbestos, etc. The air inside a house or building can contain over nine hundred types of particulate matter. Air filtration aims to remove as much particulate matter from indoor air as possible using a variety of technologies. If large and small particulates are removed from the air, there is a significantly reduced chance that they will be able to enter your lungs.
