Over the last couple of months, we have spent almost all our time indoors to stay safe from the dangers outside. What if we tell you the air you breathe at home may not be safe for you either?
One of the biggest reasons that make air at home unhealthy is indoor air pollution.
What is Indoor Air Pollution?
Indoor air pollution, much like air pollution outside, happens when the quality of the air inside your house begins degrading due to the harmful chemicals and other materials.
This makes the air around you unhealthy and unfit to breathe. There are some studies that suggest that indoor air pollution can even be more harmful to people than outdoor air pollution.
Indoor air pollution is a silent threat that’s affecting us everyday. Poor quality of air due to the presence of dangerous pollutants can lead to a series of health complications, especially respiratory issues.
Toxic chemicals present indoors include formaldehyde, which can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) which may lead to conditions as serious as loss of coordination and even damage to the liver, kidney, and the central nervous system.
In India, some of the most common health issues that arise from air pollution are pneumonia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and in some severe cases, even lung cancer.
What can be done?
Under our circumstances, spending less time indoors is not an option, neither is wearing a mask at home throughout the day. It is crucial to take steps to improve the quality of the air we breathe indoors making it healthy and safe for you and your loved ones.
