What is Clean Air?
The air quality outdoor varies and depends on things such as emissions from industries and traffic exhaust. Indoors, the air can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside according to the U.S.A. Environmental Protection Agency. A OFWA air purifier can go a long way toward helping you breathe healthier. Even though no single global standard for clean air exists, there are many different definitions of clean air. The air quality outdoors varies depending on emissions from industries nearby, traffic exhaust and local regulation. Studies show that breathing clean air can contribute to your health and well-being. Using a OFWA air purifier that removes airborne pollutants can go a long way toward helping you live a healthier and happier life.
The Health Risks of Bad Air
What you don’t see can actually hurt you, and air pollution is a major risk to your health. By breathing cleaner air, the World Health Organization states that you can reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease, lung cancer and respiratory diseases such as asthma. An air purifier from OFWA removes airborne pollutants and thereby greatly reduces the health effects associated with breathing bad indoor air. The most common indoor air pollutants are combustion products, biological particles from mold, pet dander, pollen, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), lead dust and asbestos. Indoor air may also contain over 900 different types of gaseous chemicals and particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns (PM2.5), according to The European Commission Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks. Breathing in tiny, unseen pollutants puts you at risk. These pass through your lung tissue and into your bloodstream, circulating through your body and staying there.
