There is an interesting fact about frogs. They do not notice the gradual change. Take a frog and put it in a pan of water and light it with low flame. The poor thing would boil to death as it would not notice the simmering heat and gradual rise in temperature. That’s stupid we all would say. Though we have sympathy for the Frog, its insensitivity to the changing environment is unpardonable. Well, we humans are smarter. Aren’t we? Think about it once again. Are we really smart or stupid enough to cut the branch we are sitting upon? Think about the rate at which we are polluting our water bodies and poisoning our air and we don’t even give a damn about it. So are we not just like the Frog in boiling water? Thanks to our carelessness and apathy towards our own planet we are living in a mess. We are destroying our basic necessities of life.
Air pollution has become a grave reality and no wonder within few years there would be pure air cylinders on sale in your daily needs store. But what can we do? We are all informed thanks to the media about the various ill effects of air pollution yet nothing is actually being done to stop it.
There are a lot of different reasons for this – rapid construction, and the widespread destruction of trees, vehicular exhaust, burning crop stubble in farms, burning trash in cities, and so on. All this is enough to give us asthma, cancer, heart attack, lung, and kidney disorder. And while there might be some long term solutions to these problems, the fact is that just as most of us have gotten used to living with water purifiers in our homes; it is time to accept Air Purifiers in India too. Indeed that is the only way we can live a healthy life in cities where PM 2.5 levels are often four times than the permissible limits.
The indoor air that we breathe most of the time is as contaminated as the outside air and in fact, is more injurious to our health as it keeps circulating endlessly in poorly ventilated houses and apartments.
Indoor air quality can actually be worse than the air outside. The WHO states that benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, naphthalene, nitrogen dioxide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, etc are known for their hazardousness to health, and are often found indoors in concentrations of concern to health.
Another good test of the poor air quality in your home is to check if you are affecting by frequent seasonal allergies. If yes then yes you need an air purifier. If there is even a single person in your family who is asthmatic, you need an Air Purifier. If you have children in a house with underdeveloped immune systems, making them particularly susceptible to air borne pollutants, or if someone in your house is pregnant then yes my friend you need a good air purifier.
