With exponential technological growth seen around the world and the global population on the rise, individuals are waking up to the fact that the air we breathe is not as clean as it was five to ten years ago. The Environmental Defense Fund or ETF state nine out of ten people around the world breathe unhealthy air. This growing economic challenge accounts for one of the largest environmental risks causing early death, responsible for 6 million premature deaths per year.
Why is This a Cause For Concern?
As we all know, the burning of fossil fuels powers our world and allows for the immense progress we’ve made as a global society. Nearly every aspect of our daily lives, from the food we eat to the medicine that keeps us alive, is dependent on this global industrial supply chain. Although, this progress provides an incredible benefit in extending the human lifespan around the world. It also poses health risks due to the increasing concentration of pollutants in the air. Per the EDF, there are four major concerning pollutants emitted into the atmosphere through the industrial processes that support our daily lives.
Black Carbon is a byproduct of burning fossil fuels such as coal or fuel to power our vehicles. In areas with high levels of black carbon, individuals can sustain serious health challenges, including premature death, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other serious health issues.
Nitrogen Oxides are generated as byproducts of the transportation industry. Consider all of the cargo that is shipped around the world to support our globally connected economy. This process releases billions of tons of Nitrogen Oxide into the atmosphere leading to asthma, bronchitis, and other serious respiratory illnesses.
Ozone, also known as smog, is another airborne contaminant that is created through a reactive process in the atmosphere between nitrogen oxides and organic compounds. Ozone can cause respiratory illnesses such as throat irritation, coughing, and lung disease.
How To Combat These Contaminants
Adding an indoor commercial-grade air filtration system can dramatically reduce the concentration of these airborne contaminants in your home or working space. Many individuals neglect to realize that air conditioning units don’t remove most of the contaminants we see listed above; instead of removing them, they circulate them through the air. To effectively remove these impurities, individuals should highly consider the benefits of a commercial-grade air filtration system.
