Air quality and your health

There’s an old saying, “You are what you eat.” It may be even more true that you are what you breathe, with far-reaching health effects of air pollution and poor-quality air in general, as well as equally pronounced health benefits of clean air.

Poor air quality health effects include allergies, asthma, fatigue, colds, flu, disturbed sleep, and, in extreme cases, all the way up to COPD and cancer. Ozone, soot, pm 2.5 particles and smaller, pollen, mold, viruses and bacteria are among the culprits.

Yoga for your lungs

On the other hand, the health benefits of clean air include better alertness and decision-making, safer driving, more restful sleep, more energy during the day and more creativity. In an era in which the connection between mind and body forms so much of the thinking around wellness, the importance of clean air for health feels more and more like common sense. Think of it as yoga for your lungs.

Clean air and healthy lungs

It should also come as no surprise that all of the health problems caused by pollution and health benefits of clean air are even more pronounced for children, who need clean air to develop healthy lungs, and elderly family members, whose lungs are weakened by age.

And we do mean everywhere

If Blueair can help you breathe pure, fresh air at home and at work, why not on the way to work in your car? Or in your dentist’s office? Or while having your nails done? Or taking the subway or riding your bicycle? How about your baby in his or her crib or pram? We are constantly looking for more ways to bring more clean air to more people, no matter where they are. Because once you start experiencing the energizing difference from pure air, with better sleep, concentration and creativity, why wouldn’t you want it wherever you are?
