Air Quality: Is There An Issue?

Humans can survive few weeks without food,
few days without water and only few minutes without air.

Daily intake of an average adult is:
1 - 1.2 kg food; 2 - 2.5 l water; and
15,000 - 18,000 l air.
Most of us are very careful when selecting what to eat and drink, but

Whether we admit it or not, the truth is that our health is affected significantly by the quality of the air we breathe. For this reason even minor improvements in air quality are beneficial for everyone and especially for some groups of the population including children, elderly, people with respiratory problems and those with cardiovascular diseases.

Improving the quality of the air we breathe improves our health and wellbeing.
Amazingly it costs us much less than treating the adverse health effects caused by exposure to polluted air, even when exposure is at levels which are below current standards.

Since Australians spend approx. 95% of their time indoors #, indoor air quality should be a major public health concern. According to CSIRO^ poor indoor air quality in Australia costs us $ 12 billion per year due to ill-health and lost productivity, and it can be largely prevented.

Only just recently indoor air pollution is recognised as a main air quality issue and generally it still is not addressed as it should be.

At society's level reducing air pollution means less costs for treating adverse health effects.

At employers' level reducing air pollution means less sick leave days and better productivity.

At individual's level reducing air pollution means improved personal health and wellbeing.

So, should we wait while scientists establish the concrete link between specific pollutant and certain adverse health effects, as well as the exact mechanism by which those adverse health effects occur? Or, since decades can pass in studying the wide range of pollutants in their myriad combinations, should we act now by applying the precautionary principle of Prudent Avoidance?

Implementing our air purifier improves the quality of indoor air by significantly reducing the number of particles polluting the air indoors. This may improve people's health and wellbeing, may reduce sick leave days and may improve productivity of the staff.
