When it comes to Air Quality, Indoor is worse than Outdoor Still

If by escaping the vicious smoke outside your homes, makes you feel safe enough. Then take it from me; it is a wrong notion! A report from the World Health Organisation (WHO) revealed that the aggregated effects of ambient and indoor air pollution killed 6.5 million people in 2015. We restrict our mind to think of air pollution as an outcome of only emissions emanating from vehicles, factories, industries, power plants, etc. But we find it very difficult to believe that the indoor air we breathe in, might also kill us.

Bio-aerosols escaping from your favourite spray bottles and particulate matter inside your house resulting from poor ventilation and faulty architecture can trigger many health ailments as well.

A study published in the Science of the Total Environment journal strongly asserts the fact that indoor air pollution may be dangerous than outdoor air. Exposure to household air pollution may lead to a broad range of health issues spanning from short-term effects such as eye, skin and throat irritation, fatigue, nausea, headache, muscle pain to long-term chronic effects such as respiratory malfunctions, wheezing, dyspnea, hearing loss, lung cancer, etc. Therefore on a concluding note, never underestimate the power of an enemy that lies within.
Identify potential air pollutants in your home and take the necessary steps to mitigate them.
