Studies show that the air inside of the home contains more harmful substances than the air outside. High levels of harmful bacteria, mold, pollen, dust, dust mites, tobacco smoke are a reality in the home. Breathing in these contaminants creates health conditions and worsens allergies, asthma, bronchitis, migraine headaches, lung disorders, etc.
Cleaning the air you breathe is essential for good health. Using an air purifier in the home and at work can significantly decrease the amount of contaminants in the air.
Air purifiers create good health, increase healthy breathing, and they help you to feel good and sleep restfully.
It's easier to function during the day, and sleep at night when you can breathe clean air and are not affected with allergies and breathing problems.
Allergies are a natural problem for most human beings, but a good air purifier can help to relieve allergy symptoms.
Choosing an air purifier can be confusing. Some helpful facts to remember are to avoid ozone producing air purifiers. Although they clean the air well, they emit ozone which is harmful to lung tissue. Side effects of ozone exposure are sore throat, headache, exacerbation of asthma, lung pain and lung deterioration.
The healthiest and safest air purification systems use HEPA technology, which includes the traditional HEPA filter and a more precise filter called HEPA Filtrete by 3M.
Research an air purifier before you purchase one. A good place to start is
www.consumerreports.org. They test products for health, safety, and perfomance.
On the left side of this article i have listed a link to air purifiers that are physician recommended with high ratings from consumer reports.
I will add to the list of researched air purifiers and other health products periodically. I hope that you will find this information helpful.
