Effects On Life Expectancy From Diseases Caused by Indoor Air Pollution


How long we live is dependent on the quality of air we breathe, so that leaves us with the question, how long would you love to live for? how precious is your wellbeing during your stay on earth to you?


"Around the world today, people are breathing air that represents a serious risk to their health. But the way this risk is communicated is very often opaque and confusing, translating air pollution concentrations into colors, like red, brown, orange and green. What those colors mean for people's well-being has always been unclear," said Michael Greenstone, the Milton Friedman Professor in Economics and director of EPIC.

A 2017 report by the Global Commission on Pollution and Health identified pollution as the leading cause of death and disability in the world. But researchers at EPIC have now further established that emissions of airborne particulate matter – a mixture of small particles and liquid droplets in smoke that can affect the heart and lungs if inhaled – pose the single biggest threat to human health globally.

In fact, air pollution’s impact on life expectancy exceeds that of communicable diseases such as tuberculosis and AIDS, behavioral killers like cigarette smoking and even war, according to the study. The findings are based on EPIC’s new Air Quality Life Index, which charts the relationship between long-term exposure to particulate matter and life expectancy at the local level.

We cannot over emphasize the necessity of living a healthy live or managing our health conditions such as Asthma or our allergies to certain things, but one thing we can do to ensure we live a heathy life is to ensure that we have quality air in our homes.

A study conducted by a team of public health researchers and leading environmental engineers have determined that air pollution shortens the lives of humans by more than a year. This is the first study that looked at data from air pollution and lifespan in order to examine global variations on how they might affect overall life expectancy.

“While people can stop smoking and take steps to protect themselves from diseases, there is little they can individually do to protect themselves from the air they breathe,” said Greenstone, UChicago’s Milton Friedman Professor in Economics, in a statement.

AirRestore helps to give you this opportunity, the opportunity to ensure that we breathe in quality Natural Air while we sleep, eat and spend time with our family indoors.

Airborne diseases are tough ones to prevent from spreading, because they are caused by pathogens all around us in the air we breathe.

Handwashing is always important for helping prevent the transmission of illnesses. But no matter how many times you wash your hands, there will be germs in the air to worry about after someone coughs, sneezes or speaks.


AirRestore Air Neutralizers can help you keep those germs at bay. They help remove them from the air. Use the Air Neutralizer during cold and flu season in a room with someone who is ill to stay on top of the germs. Keep it running afterward to help the air continue to clean itself.
