The Health Effects of Indoor Air Pollution

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that more than 3 million people die each year from outdoor air pollution and that number is set to double by 2050. The WHO has also linked well over 4 million deaths to indoor air pollution in 2012. To put this into perspective, more people die each year from air pollution related illnesses than AIDS and Malaria related illnesses combined. Cleaner air has been shown to lead to many health benefits, including the reduction of strokes, heart disease, lung cancer, and respiratory diseases, such as asthma. Reducing indoor air pollution is an important step to a lifetime of better health for you and your family.

Birth defects and others issues linked to indoor air pollution

RXAIR protects the ones we care about in the places that matter most to us. A report from the American Journal of Epidemiology shows a direct relationship between air pollution and birth defects. The study found that mothers who live in areas with high concentrations of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide were almost twice as likely to give birth to a child with severe and often fatal neurological defects. In addition, the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the WHO have released data that has linked outdoor and indoor air pollution to lower birth weights and premature births.

Giving our children both a safe start and healthy childhood is of the utmost importance to every parent. Fortunately, the problems created by poor air quality can be avoided and health can be improved by cleaning the air around us. A study of air pollution reduction during the 2008 Beijing Olympics showed that air pollution related birth issues, like low birth weight, can be reversed with higher air quality.
