As the demand for manufactured goods, new infrastructure and forms of transportation increases, so does the scale of damage to our environment. Our day-to-day activities continue to compound existing forms of pollution, as numb as we have become to it. But one type of pollution is particularly vicious given the fact that it’s mostly invisible: air pollution. Reportedly, exposure to outdoor air pollution is responsible for over 4 million deaths each year...
What scientists are learning is that pretty much everyone, everywhere is breathing polluted air, to varying degrees. The challenging part of this, is how to communicate this danger to the global population; how can we really know how bad the air we are breathing actually is? Unlike cigarettes, air pollution doesn’t come with a warning label or a distinct odor. Normally, there are no signs that we are inhaling poor air until years down the line. We don’t have control over the air we breathe.
As most of us know by now, masks can become uncomfortable very quickly. Foggy glasses, pulling on ears, irritated skin and lack of breathability are just some of the discomforts we experience while wearing face masks for any length of time. Finding a great face mask will become a travel essential for those wanting to fly as comfortably as possible. Here is our list of the 4 most important things to look for in a travel mask
Are anti-pollution masks effective in reducing or preventing the harmful effects of air pollution? Any face mask's ability to limit exposure depends on the type of pollutant, the mask itself and how it’s used. This article will explore why we should be informed about the air quality around us, how air pollutants can effect our health and how to chose the best face mask to protect yourself.
It’s easy to recognise when food is mouldy or when water is dirty but when it comes to the air we breathe how can we really tell how clean it is? The average person takes around 20,000 breaths per day and all that we inhale travels into our body through the respiratory tract, entering our lungs and eventually our bloodstream.
