Healthy air for healthier lungs
Many say the most dangerous enemies are those we don’t see. In fact, if we are scared of going out because of air pollution, there are probabilities that the air inside our homes may be polluted as well, probably more polluted. It would be difficult to know for there are no tell-tale signs of the presence of microscopic air pollutants like dust, pollen, allergens, bacteria, even the coronavirus, that are invisible and impossible for the human eye to see while they are in the air.
Indoor air quality is a must in every home or even office since hazardous elements like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, the total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) and particulate matter below 2.5 μm (PM₂.₅) in the air can wreak havoc in your respiratory system. The air we breathe today will most certainly have an impact on our lungs since it is the first human organ inside our body that air will come into contact with.
Breathing feeds oxygen to every cell in the body. Without sufficient oxygen, people are more prone to health problems, including respiratory illnesses, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and even heart disease.
Every cell in your body needs oxygen in order to live. The air we breathe contains oxygen and other gases. Know the air you breathe with uHoo!
