When we think of air pollution we tend to associate it with outdoor air pollutants (in particular emissions from cars and factories). While outdoor air pollution affects our environment and our health we fail to recognize that an immense part of the problem comes from the air quality inside our homes and workplace. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is 2 to 5 times more hazardous than outdoor air and is considered to be the “number one environmental health problem”.
Indoor air contains an abundance of toxins ranging from invisible particles, gases and microbiological organisms all of which threaten our immune system and make us more vulnerable to all kinds of harmful and life-threatening diseases. What are some polluting contributors you will find indoors? Many of the sources come from central heating, cooling systems, humidification devices, floors, carpets, walls, ceilings, cigarettes, dust, mites, mildew, molds, perfumes and cosmetics. Other contributing factors come from pets and human epithelium.
Who is at risk? It is a major concern for everyone, ranging from infants to seniors, especially those who are sensitive to allergens and contaminants. What can you do about it? Thankfully there are air purifying technologies available on the market. To make sure you and your loved ones are getting the purest air possible, consider an ionic air purifier by the innovative Toronto based technology, Heaven Fresh; all products are available at Better Living.
Why use negative ions in air purifiers? According to research studies, negative ions reduce and/or destroy bacteria, viruses and other microbes. Negative ions are needed in order to take in oxygen, they can prevent/improve asthma and other respiratory-related illnesses. Negative ions are a natural anti-depressant, can prevent migraine headaches and can improve ones mental performance and concentration.
