Gases and break dust from combustion vehicles expose you to significant amounts of particulate matter which enter your bloodstream.
Air quality can be 10-15 times worse when traveling on tubes and trains compared to city street levels.
Indoor air quality can be 2-5 times worse than outdoor air quality. Volatiles like formaldehyde, and and chemicals like carbon monoxide can all be found inside your home.
Particulate matter exposure to the lungs and bloodstream can restrict blood vessels, clog arteries, and also cause strokes. Several studies conducted on the effects of air pollution exposure have found that exposure to pollutants has lasting and harmful effects on human health. Studies have found that women who live near high-traffic areas or are exposed to toxins associated with industrial chemicals are at an increased risk of breast cancer. Air pollution has also been associated with a greater increased risk of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and lung cancer. Women who are pregnant are particularly vulnerable to high exposure to air pollution and could experience hypertensive disorders affecting fetal birth weight and premature labor.
Whether you're in a large city with heavy traffic, commuting on the train or at your office, you are subject to the effects of air pollution. Wearing a pollution mask is an important way that you can significantly limit exposure and decrease adverse health risks caused by air pollution.
Ensure you choose a well designed pollution mask which offers certified filtration to minimise exposure. Don’t wait for the negative health effects of air pollution to accumulate in lungs and bloodstream.
Superior protection from airborne viruses, decreasing the chance of catching common illnesses such as colds and fevers.
Exceptional protection from airborne bacteria, decreasing the chance of catching illnesses from an infected person via coughing, sneezing and close contact.
Protect yourself from particulate matter, all the way down to PM0.1, the smallest testable particle size.
