The Effects of Air Pollution on Our Bodies
Research has shown that long-term exposure to air pollution increases all-cause mortality and aggravates many disease states, such as cardiovascular disease and lung conditions. Based on data from the World Health Organization (WHO), 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants, and approximately 7 million deaths globally are attributed to air pollution.
Knowing what to do can feel overwhelming. Most people tend to think of outdoor air quality only, and many don’t realize that indoor air quality can often be worse. Although this may feel even more gloomy, as many of us spend more time indoors – we have greater control over our air.
Air pollution is an often overlooked health risk since it’s hard to see or measure.
Some important steps to improve air quality include making sure to change air filters regularly and ensure adequate ventilation, especially in the kitchen (over the stove). Lastly, you can consider digital air filtration systems. Smart tech filters like IQ Air help support cleaner air in your home and car.
