Air pollution is one of the main risk factors when it comes to a variety of health issues – some even extremely severe. Though we will probably not feel the damage caused to our bodies by air pollution in the short term, it is important to know how prolonged exposure presents us with many dangers – such as chronic respiratory issues, chronic headaches, allergies, confusion and even severe diseases. So where is the highest concentration of air pollution and how can we protect ourselves from it? Here’s all you need to know about that.
Where is the highest concentration of air pollution?
Sadly, air pollution is something we are exposed to almost everywhere we go. Car smoke, gases emitted into the air, cigarette smoke and more – these all pollute the air around us and are dangerous to our health. Even though it is customary to think that air pollution is at its highest concentration in public places or open air, it is in fact an issue typical of more confined spaces – including our homes. Since our homes (and other structures) are confined spaces, they tend to “store” different contaminants within it – mainly carbon dioxide which we exhale as part of the breathing process.
The dangers of carbon
It is important to understand that, similar to other contaminants, carbon dioxide holds quite a few dangers for us, first and foremost being carbon dioxide poisoning. Even though this is an actual health-related danger, carbon dioxide poisoning is something we will not feel at first, since it has very mild symptoms which are virtually unrecognizable in its early stages. With that said, this very poisoning can cause damage to the hemoglobin levels in the long run, with intense headaches, shortness of breath, chest pains, lack of coordination and even seizures, respiratory distress, comas and death. For those reasons, we recommend purchasing a quality domestic home purifier to ventilate and purify the air all day long, every day.
Living with pets
Beyond the dangers that lie in carbon dioxide, there are quite a few materials in the air that are not dangerous, but certainly make us feel less comfortable, such as odors and dirt coming from our pets. A quality air purifier knows how to defuse those contaminants and allow us to breathe fresh air, even when living with pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits, etc.
Those of us who suffer from allergies that damage the respiratory system understand, better than anyone, the importance of clean air. Whether it is a dust mite allergy or a wide array of other airborne pollens coming in from the outside through the windows or even the soles of our shoes; an efficient air purifier can clean the air even of those particles and allow us to live in an allergy-free, snot-free home, with no shortness of breath.
