Do you, or does someone in your family, suffer from Environmental Illness or Chemical Sensitivity?
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), chemical sensitivity is related to exposure to natural, or man-made pollution, indoors and outdoors. This includes pesticides, plastics, synthetic fabrics, scented products, petroleum products, and paint fumes. Additional pollutants that may cause respiratory illness include sulfur dioxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, cigarette smoke, wood burning stoves and building-related illness.
Ah…back to school season…. The time of year when all the germs jump back into our lives.
The time of year when that first sickness of the year shows up and spreads through the family like burning leaves. The time of year where you’ll do anything to keep the germs out of the house just a little while longer…. Yes, the struggle is real. This is why the American made Intellipure Ultrafine 468 air purifier has been a welcome addition to my home this year.
We love hearing personal testimonies from our customers! Take a look at what Jeanne had to share about using Intellipure in her home built in the 1900s..
As summer comes to a close and cooler nights creep in, so does the fall allergy season.
Is there such thing as “safe” air pollution levels for the air we breathe?
A Harvard University research study found that there are no “safe” levels of pollution, at which the risk of dying early tapers off. The study suggests that air pollution cuts Americans’ lives short, even at levels well below the legal limits set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Overall, the study found that exposure to ozone and fine particulate matter are linked to an increased risk of premature death. scientists calculated that reducing fine particle pollution by 1 microgram per cubic meter, nationwide, would save about 12,000 lives each year. By lowering ozone pollution by 1 part per billion, another 1,900 lives would be saved annually.
Take preventative steps to improve the air quality in your home. There is no such thing has having a home that is “too clean” or “too pure.” Air is always circulating in and out of your home and it is important to limit the air pollution floating around you.
