Not many people realize but the air you breathe in your home or office may be potentially harmful to your health. Did you know that indoor air is, in fact, more polluted than outdoor air? This is especially true during the cold months.
Sometimes people don’t realize that the nagging symptoms they are feeling may be caused by the air they breathe in.
Indoor air pollution has often been linked to a variety of adverse health effects including frequent cold, sore throat, headaches, skin rashes, respiratory problems, eye irritation, chronic cough, dizziness, memory lapses and lethargy.
Long term exposure to indoor air pollutions is also linked to increased risk of cancer. A study by the Environmental Protection Agency shoed that on an average a person spends about 90 percent of his or her time indoors. Infants are the most affected by indoor pollution as they are exposed to the pollution for nearly 24 hours a day.
