Climate change plus poor air quality equals health risks

As mentioned above, climate change will impact the environment, but it will also burden our health. The World Health Organization (WHO) published a report explaining the harmful effects of the rise of air pollution on our health. The report explained that air pollution is responsible for seven million deaths each year. The mortality rate is so high due to the daily exposure we have with small pollutants of 2.5 microns in diameter that cause cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.

Climate change is undoubtedly the most critical environmental issue of the twenty-first century. Various scientific evidence indicates that the effects of rising temperatures will be more severe and will probably occur sooner than expected. Warm temperatures are prone to cause multiple disruptions to the global ecosystem and the air we breathe.

How is climate change and air pollution related?

The warming of our planet causes more extreme weather, such as heatwaves, wildfires, and droughts, which can negatively affect air quality. Extreme temperatures also trigger the chemical reaction of ozone. This chemical is in the black smog of big cities like Beijing and India. Ozone is a dangerous chemical that could create serious respiratory problems and risk our health if we have significant exposure to it. Rising temperatures also lead to extreme droughts that cause wildfires. Wildfires release the chemical carbon monoxide (CO) and other small toxic matter. High exposure to carbon monoxide slows down and reduces the flow of oxygen in our bloodstream, which is essential for our heart and brain. Carbon monoxide (CO) can also be in indoor closed spaces and cause confusion, dizziness, and even death.

Plants and flowers also grow with the help of carbon monoxide, and the increase in temperatures will double the number of plants that generate allergies meaning that there would be a rise of airborne allergen pollutants. Airborne allergens reduce air quality, causing respiratory problems such as allergies and asthma. Rising temperatures and their negative consequences indicate the unhealthy cycle where air pollution generates climate warming, generating more air pollution.

How can we protect ourselves from pollution?

With temperatures on the rise and pollution risking our health, many think that being safe and healthy from all the pollutants is impossible. Fortunately, there is one way we could protect ourselves from pollution with air purifiers. Air purifiers will not eliminate outdoor pollution, but they do eliminate indoor air pollution and the health risks that come with them. Most importantly, they guarantee safe and clean indoor air.

AIR8 air purifiers 

AIR8 air purifiers are equipped with high-quality HEPA 13 filters that guarantee safe and clean air. HEPA 13 filters can remove 99.97 percent of particles as small as 0.1 microns. We work with the latest and highest technology on the market to provide the safety everybody needs. Our medical-grade air purifiers contain up to six high stages of filtration. Each stage of filtration operates with different technology to eliminate toxic air pollutants. This combination of filters ensures the elimination of 99.97 percent of hazardous particles, viruses, and germs present in the air. With rising temperatures and increased air pollution, it is essential to have an air purifier that will provide us with clean air. Unfortunately, our air purifiers cannot eliminate all the pollution in the world, but we can eliminate indoor pollutants and provide you with appropriate indoor air.
