During this pandemic, many people used air purifiers in their homes. They believe that using an air purifier can minimize the spread of covid-19 in the room. 

Air purifiers can indeed minimize the number of bacteria and viruses in the air. Even so, many people buy an air purifier just because they follow trends without knowing the benefits, they get by using an air purifier. 

However, the air purifier has many benefits for the health of its users. Here are the reasons why water purifiers are great for health.  

1. Air Purifiers Remove Triggers for Asthma Attacks 

How can an air purifier remove triggers for asthma attack? It is because the air purifier can capture pollutants down to 0.1 microns in the airborne, including bacteria and viruses. Which is why, by investing an air purifier at home is great for you who are asthma sufferer or have someone who has asthma in your house.

2. Air Purifiers Eliminate Allergens, Such as Dust and Pet and smoke Odour 

Not only HEPA filter, the air purifiers also have pre-filter and carbon filter. Pre-filter is specialized in trapping bigger pollutant such as dust. The dust will be trapped inside the pre-filter. The carbon filter is specialized in neutralized odour in the room. If one of your family is smokers, air purifier can remove the odour of tobacco that is lingered in object surfaces.

3. Air Purifiers Eliminate Radon Gas, Which Can Cause Lung Cancer 

Rado gas is produced from a natural combination of uranium in soil, rock, and water that can be found in homes, offices, and schools as it enters through cracks in the floors and walls. 

People are at ricks of being contaminated by radon gas, but if levels of radon gas are too high, deathly results can occur. Study has found fact that anywhere from 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths are linked to radon gas each year. 

Those three reasons are the benefits of air purifier to your health. Next time, if you are considered to buy an air purifier, better you check the specifications first and the technology inside the air purifier before deciding to buy a new one.

Clean Air Is A Good Business

38

Chinese businessman Mr. Liang lives in Beijing, where the air is just horrible. After spending a business trip in the south of France, he came back with a small item to share his pure air experience: A small sealed glass jar of clean Provence mountain air. The result of the jar was 5,250 yuan ($845 at today’s exchange rate) when he auctioned it in front of a group of Chinese artists.

 

Air should be the most valueless commodity, free to breathe for any vagrant or beggar,” Liang said in an interview. “This is my way to question China’s foul air and express my dissatisfaction.”

Things have gotten so bad that even the authorities fold their hands anymore. Pollution is now one of the top causes of social unrest in China, and even Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has said that it is a “major problem” and he wants the government to “declare war’’ on smog by removing high-emission cars from the road and closing coal-fired furnaces.

 

Pollution is ‘‘nature’s red-light warning against the model of inefficient and blind development,’’ Li said at the start of the year’s National People’s Congress in Beijing. ‘‘Fostering a sound ecological environment is vital for people’s lives and the future of our nation.”

In fact, the World Health Organization has concluded that air pollution is now the world’s biggest environmental health risk with 7 million deaths per year. Clean air is not only a money business, but also our health business that definitely deserves our effort and attention.

Get Rid of Smoke from Your Surrounding Air

Let’s say we have a family member who likes to smoke constantly. When he or she is in the house, we hate it. Then, what can we put in the house so other people aren’t consuming the smoke?

We are well aware about the second hand smoke and damages it brings. In addition to the smoke, cigarettes also produce a sticky tar that can build up on furniture and walls causing a brown discoloration (the same theory applies on smokers’ teeth). Fortunately, there’re still plenty of products available to help remove the room of this unpleasant and unhealthy smoke.

There are two factors that need to be considered with cigarette smoke. The first is an ozone producing machine. This neutralizes the odour and toxic components that are released with the cigarette smoke. The second is a HEPA filter. These are effective in filtering out the tar and particulate to keep it from landing on the surfaces in your home. Together, these two items will help remove the smell and keep the tar out of your home, making for an efficient cigarette smoke removal system. Trust it or not, they will do the job beyond your expectations.

Air purifiers or ionizers alone will not effectively remove the cigarette smoke from the air. Ensure that your air purifying device contains both an ozone generating component as well as a filtering system.

A Wonderful BBQ Wedding

My high school best friend was getting married in Italy. She hosted a BBQ wedding on a piece of big grassland. Honestly, I wasn’t really interested in joining the party at the beginning as it took me 12 hours to land there. But turned out this trip and the party were so much wonderful.

The BBQ party was the highlight of the wedding and it started at evening. The fuel they used was coconut shell charcoal instead of gas or coal. This reflected the couple as Earth lovers and the wedding theme as natural. One of the benefits using coconut shell charcoal is that there’s no smoke. Guests could chat and socialise easily without being “covered” by the smoke.

Because of the consistent heat for over four hours using coconut charcoal made it a very a convenient method of barbecuing (and also economical). There’s no need for anyone to replenish the grill with more fuel during cooking.  After the party, there was little ash produced that allowed us to clean grill a lot easier after barbecuing.

This really inspired me and I tried to use the same fuel for barbecuing with my kids after going home. Well, I can say, coconut charcoal is definitely one of the cleanest and cheapest ways of enjoying a grilling meal. It’s really something which should be given a thought as once you switch to coconut charcoal you won’t feel like trying another fuel for your grill. There’s no health risk, which is my particular concern for the kids, and the meat tastes just as it is. I even find it amazing as there’s no interruption in the middle to refuel my BBQ.

Ever suspected your water quality? It looks yellowish? It happens to smell like steel? Or it even contains some “unknown” substances? Then you tired different methods to clean the water but nothing worked. What’s the problem?

Indeed, the practicalsolutions to your contaminated drinking water problem are to stop the practices causing the contamination or to change water sources. While changing water sources can be hard or even impossible sometimes, stopping the particles becomes the best solution.

Try Activated Carbon (AC). AC is not necessarily the same as carbon. AC is a black, solid substance resembling granular or powdered charcoal. It is extremely porous with a very large surface area. One ounce of AC has an estimated 30,000 square yards of surface area. Thus, AC removes far more contaminants from water than does of ordinary carbon.

Activated Carbon (AC) filters can remove many organic compounds, such as chlorinated and non-chlorinated solvents. They can also effectively remove chlorine and is moderately effective in removing some heavy metals. Meanwhile, AC can also remove taste and odours in your domestic water treatment systems.

Today, home water treatment using AC is among the best and popular optioused by people with a drinking water quality problem. Your selection of an AC filter should be based upon water analysis and a thorough assessment of your homeowner’s situation. A well-informed decision is always your best insurance for protecting health.
