Indoor air-related problems

There is a growing public awareness and knowledge about poor indoor air quality and its alarming health effects.

In the last couple of years, scientific evidence indicate that it is actually the indoor air that is a major health threat being seriously more polluted than the outdoor air in even the most industrialized cities.

 

Hundreds of community health studies have linked daily increases in fine particle pollution to reduced lung function, greater use of asthma medications, and increased rates of school absenteeism, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, and even tens of thousands premature death each year.

 

 

WHO published a report stating that one billion of the world’s inhabitants now have chronic lung  diseases and that by 2020, these will be the world’s greatest cause of death. This applies to pulmonary infections such as tuberculosis as well as lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), plus a range of respiratory diseases such as asthma and diseases involving defective breathing regulation, like sleep apnea and sudden infant death.

 

During the last couple of years it has also been proven that allergic and asthma reactions have become 10 -100 times more aggressive in combination with breathing such small soot particles, mostly from combustion of fossil fuels, which are the great majority of particles in the air today.

 

We spend approximately 90% of our time indoor and takes in 10-13kgs of air, -almost 10 times of the food or water, to live every single day, why managing indoor air is of great importance.

what pollutes the indoor air

Indoor air pollution is caused by various factors.

 

  • The outdoor air – through the ventilation system enters exhaust fumes, pollution from industries, mould, allergens, pollen, radon, pesticides, micro/nano particles, different kind of virus into our houses.

  • Tons of construction material – can secrete poisonous gas (radon), raw material, asbestos-containing insulation, wet or damp carpet, and furniture etc. It can also collect particles, bacteria, virus, mould, etc. These are a few of the effects that go under the name “Sick Building Syndrome” (SBS). Other pollutants are products for; central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices.

  • The human being also leaves remains from skin, hair, dust from clothes, dirt from shoes, and furthermore we pollute more by smoking, cooking, lighting fires, keeping pets etc.

  • Human activities and pollution combined generates a huge amount of positive charged ions, which result in an unnatural imbalance of ions, which has been proven to cause severe health problems

what Are positive and negative ions?

An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the

atom or molecule a net positive or negative electrical charge influenced by various atmospheric forces or environmental influences.

 

 

Positive ions & their health effects

Positive ions are usually carbon dioxide molecules that have been stripped of an electron. Also known as positively charged ions, they have been demonstrated to have a negative effect on your body.

 

This is particularly the case with your lungs and respiratory tract but your immune system can also be affected. This is because positive ions can be so small they are absorbed directly into your bloodstream from the air you breathe.

 

An excess of positively charged ions in your environment is believed to contribute to tiredness and a lack of energy, tension, anxiety and irritability. Positive ions have even been investigated as a contributing factor for asthma and depression.

 

In nature positive ions are commonly formed by high winds, dust, humidity and pollution.

 

If you’ve ever spent a lot of time walking beside a busy road or inside a Laundromat you will have experienced the tiring effects of a highly positively charged environment. Unfortunately, our modern-day homes and workplaces have also become chronic generators of potentially harmful positive ions.

 

Office air-conditioning systems, fluorescent lights, electrical and computer equipment are all potent positive ion generators.

In your home, fluorescent lighting and electrical equipment such as televisions, carpets, curtains, upholstery and hair dryers etc are particularly strong source of positive ions.

 

Additionally, unless you live in the country, opening your window may not be that beneficial anyway. Large towns and city environments have sometimes been tested as having less than a third of the beneficial negative ions in the air when compared to country environments, along with a variety of other damaging pollutants.

 

 

NEGATIVe ions & their health effects

Negative ions are created when a molecule gains a negatively charged electron. Due to this nature, they are statically attracted to the airborne particles like dust, mold and other pollutants and potential allergen and viruses.

 

Negative ions clear the air of dust, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, odors, cigarette smoke, bacteria and viruses.

 

By attaching to the airborne pollutants and allergens they give them a negative charge. The airborne particles become too heavy to stay airborne and fall down to the floor or nearest surface.

 

Naturally negative ions are created in nature by the effects of water, air, sunlight and the Earth’s inherent radiation. They are most prevalent in natural places particularly in forests, at the beach and most intensely near waterfalls. This is a good part of the reason why you usually feel so great in these places and find it difficult to be tired or depressed.

 

The human body is surrounded by ions, both positive and negative; therefore, the function of electrons inside and outside the cells has significant influence on the human body. We take in negative ions through our skin and lungs transporting it to the entire body through the blood.

 

In a healthy environment approximately two thirds of the ions should consist of negative ions. Humans and our environment generate positive ions and create an unnatural balance of ions.

 

Consequenses of polluted air

After studies of people who have been exposed to SBS (Sick Building Syndrom) or other polluted environments it has been clear that a polluted environment is the major cause of the following symptoms:

 

  • Allergy
  • Asthma
  • Irritation in eyes and throat
  • Cardio and vascular decease
  • Respiratory decease
  • Fatigue, concentration difficulties, headache, irritation, depression
  • Virus and bacteria attacks

 

The consequence of these symptoms is long-term sickness and absence from work and school as well as an enormous cost for the society. There are urgent problems in the hospital industry where there is a continuous losing battle against resistant bacteria and virus infections.

 

Many industrial procedures have problems with particles in the air. These are directly functional problems causing production and quality problems or storage losses in the hospital industry, the food and pharmaceutical industries, the electronic industry, paper and photo industry and in many other industrial processing situations.

 

Studies proving the effectiveness of negative ions

Many studies of the relationship of Negative Ions to our health have been made by professional researchers who agree that our health is dependent on the amount and the quality of Ions in the air. On the subject of Ions, the world famous professor, A.D. Moore from Michigan University stated that:

 

"Most people agree that if we can control the amount of ions in our everyday life, it will have a positive effect on our health. Breathing air with a certain type of Ion can be helpful as a medical treatment such as healing a wound." In this way, Ions help improve our health, and the Negative Ion performs an especially important role.

 

Dr. Pierce J. Howard PhD at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences stated in the owners manual for the brain:

 

“Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.”
