Do you know what Air you are breathing in?

Updated: Mar 4

Before we delve into the solution, let’s have a look at some of the facts we face

everyday.


We spend as much as 90% of our lives indoors and unless treated this increases

autism and certain types of Cancer and other health complications er

pollutants that cause environmental health hazards. This results in a greater

incidence of asthma, headaches, eye irritation, allergies, fatigue, toxin load,

autism and certain types of Cancer and other health complications etc..


They are silent but deadly and completely invisible. The germs and bacteria living in our homes.


According to the Society for General Microbiology, some bacteria can divide

every 20 minutes with the right temperature and nutrients. That’s why

symptoms of illnesses show up so quickly after an infection. One study about

the most contaminated objects in the home found over 340 different

bacteria on 30 different objects.


How do germs spread ?


Germs can spread from person to person and person to surface. There are

several factors that influence germ life.


Scary Germ facts:


  • 80% of illness is derived from touch

  • More than 75% of dish sponges and hand towels contain nasty bacteria

  • The kitchen sink waste contains the greatest amount of germs

  • The average 10CM pet bowl contains over 400,000 microorganisms

  • An office/hotel desk has 400 times more bacteria than your loo

  • Let us not forget about other object that the silent but deadly call home:

  • Light switches, handles and knobs, bench tops and one of the worst your toothbrush….. Even your mobile phone or remote control, the list is endless.


...Now, Let us look at VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds)


Firstly, what are they:


Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gases

from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which

may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many

VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOCs

are emitted by a wide array of products numbering in the thousands.

Unfortunately, our homes are full of them.


Organic chemicals are widely used as ingredients in household products. Paints,

varnishes and wax all contain organic solvents, as do many cleaning, disinfecting,

cosmetic, degreasing and hobby products. Fuels are made up of organic chemicals.

All of these products can release organic compounds while you are using them, and,

to some degree, when they are stored.


Typical everyday products that contain VOC’s:


  • Aerosol Sprays

  • Cleansers and Disinfectants

  • Repellents and Air Fresheners

  • Dry Cleaned Clothing

  • Pesticides

  • New Cars


Effects on your health may include:


  • Eye, Nose and Throat Irritation

  • Headaches, Loss of Coordination and Nausea

  • Damage to Liver, Kidney and Central Nervous System

  • Some organics can cause cancer in animals, some are suspected or known to

  • Cause Cancer in humans.

Currently, not much is known about what effects on your health occur from the

levels of organics usually found in homes however; why risk it and get protected.
