Air surrounds us constantly, so it’s easy to take it for granted without thinking about how important it is for our very survival. The truth of the matter is we cannot live more than a few minutes without the oxygen that is one of the components of air. Oxygen only makes up about 21% of air. About 78% of the air we breathe is made up of another gas called nitrogen. There are also tiny amounts of other gases like argon, carbon dioxide and methane.
Oxygen is absolutely necessary for human function because our cells constantly need a new supply of it. Because humans are aerobic creatures, we require oxygen to release energy and exist.
From a science perspective, air is vital for all life on our planet:
- Air is important because it helps water move between the states of vapor, liquid, and ice in a process called the water cycle.
- Air is necessary in the recycling of carbon.
- Air creates an atmosphere to act as an “insulation blanket” to prevent our planet from becoming too hot or too cold. Earth’s atmosphere also helps to protect us from X-rays, cosmic rays and other particles that bombard the planet from outer space. In addition, earth’s ozone layer helps reduce the amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation that reaches the surface. Air in the atmosphere also causes most meteors to vaporize before hitting the earth’s surface because of the heat due to friction that air creates.
A common problem we face as humans is the air we breathe can easily become polluted creating issues that can be a nuisance, a serious health threat, or it can become deadly. While we have witnessed evidence of this for many years with people who have been exposed to asbestos and coal dust, we are currently seeing it first-hand, especially in many cities around the globe.
A sobering report released in June, 2016 by the International Energy Agency, air pollution has become a major public health crisis leading to around 6.5 million deaths each year according to the World Health Organization (WHO), with “many of its root causes and cures” found in the energy industry. https://www.iea.org/publications/freepublications/publication/WorldEnergyOutlookSpecialReport2016EnergyandAirPollution.pdf.
In a new report from the Health Effects Institute, State of Global Air 2017, air pollution is the leading environmental cause of death and 92 percent of the world’s population lives in areas with unhealthy air, according to this recent report. https://www.stateofglobalair.org/.
In a 2013 MIT study, it was reported that outdoor air pollution causes 200,000 early deaths each year in the U.S. with vehicle emissions being the biggest contributor. http://news.mit.edu/2013/study-air-pollution-causes-200000-early-deaths-each-year-in-the-us-0829.
Outdoor air pollution is contributing to about 40,000 early deaths a year in the UK, say the Royal Colleges of Physicians and of Pediatrics and Child Health – 9,000 of them in London alone. http://www.nhs.uk/news/2016/02February/Pages/Air-pollution-kills-40000-a-year-in-the-UK-says-report.aspx.
While outdoor air pollution causes the majority of deaths, indoor air pollution is not exempt. Tobacco still poses the biggest indoor threat, wood-burning stoves, carbon monoxide, cleaning products, and air fresheners can contribute. Dust, pet dander, mold, mildew, and a huge variety of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) in poorly ventilated homes can also cause illness and long-term health risks.
Combating air pollution to be healthy
By far, the easiest way to help maintain good health is to simply breathe negative ionized air created by nature or high quality air purifiers.
Air purifiers that generate negative ions can help you breathe cleaner, healthier air and protect you from exposure to airborne allergens such as pollen, mold spores, bacteria and viruses. The constant flow of negative ions will also help clear the air of dust mites, pet dander, cigarette smoke and other pollutants that can make you sick.
Healthy negative ions are abundant in nature, especially around waterfalls, on the ocean surf, at the beach and after a storm. They are also widespread in mountains and forests. They are even generated in your shower. Conversely, unhealthy positive ions are present in polluted cities, crowded areas and in confined spaces such as offices, industrial areas, schools, buses, airplanes, and cars.
The degree to which negative ions contribute to overall well-being and health is scientifically proven:
- They neutralize free radicals
- They revitalize cell metabolism
- They enhance immune function
- They purify the blood
- They balance the autonomic nervous system, promoting deep sleep and healthy digestion
Negative ions perform this function by attaching themselves to positively charged particles in large numbers and negatively charging those particles. As a result, these viruses, bacteria and pollen spores become too heavy to remain airborne and are thus prevented from entering your breathing passage where they can make you fall sick. In other words, negative ions form a protective circle around you.
At Invigorating Waters, we stock GreenTech Environmental air purifiers of various sizes and styles for homes, businesses, offices, individual rooms, vehicles, and for personal use (as a wearable). When you enter our facility, the freshness of the air is noticeable. It’s reminiscent of the smell of outdoor air after a thunderstorm or the smell of laundry drying on a clothesline in sunshine.
While we are officially known as Invigorating Waters, our air is also invigorating. Please stop in and pay us a visit. Breathe our air and enjoy a free sample of fresh, purified, healthy alkaline ionized water
