Air pollution is a big deal and it’s making many people sick. Of course, the big picture is to reduce the amount of pollutants in the air we breathe from factories, car exhaust, etc. But that is long term change, people need to be able to protect themselves now. Good news, portable air filters will make a world of difference to most people.
The study done at the University of Michigan revealed that inexpensive air filers provide a good first defense in homes to help keep out toxic particles. We spend a great deal of time inside and just providing an air filter will help to improve overall health because it cleans up the majority of the air we’re actually breathing.
This is especially good news for vulnerable populations who are more at risk for the illnesses that come with air pollution. Although this isn’t a solution for the overall problem, this small step can help keep us all healthy as we fight for a cleaner tomorrow.
