We know that big cities have bad effects on health, due to their poor quality of air.
The main pollutants we find in the air are PM10, nitrogen dioxyde and ozone. These three pollutants hazardous to health, can cause respiratory disorders, cardiovascular diseases , lung cancers and lead to early death (2 million people die each year because of pollution in large cities).
My question is: how can I avoid or reduce the risks of having my health deteriorated because of a bad quality of air?
- does leave open the window of my room all day is dangerous for me ?
- should I avoid walking or running along traffic queues ?
- does having indoor plants can benefit me ?
- Is wearing a mask the days of high pollution really useful?
I would like to group under this topic the best tips and tricks to breathe better every day . If the subject becomes too big, I will divide it into several questions.
