  • Giant snails measure air pollution more accurately than some instruments

    A sewage company in St. Petersburg, Russia, is teaching us all that when it comes to the quality of the air that you breathe, it pays to rely on your own senses sometimes.

    Vodokanal, a St. Petersburg water company, is using giant snails, which serve as indicators of potentially harmful pollution from a sewage incinerator on the basis that the snails can pick up air quality readings more readily than the company's instruments. It has also employed crayfish to evaluate the quality of the city's drinking water, The Australian reports.

    "Live organisms won't deceive anyone about the danger of pollution," Vodokanal director or wastewater disposal Olga Rublevskaya told the news source. "Now we are under the watch of snails and crayfish all the time."

  • What exactly are dust mites?

    Many people may have heard mention of the microscopic creatures without ever really learning what a dust mite was.

    Dust mites are not just another variety of inanimate sneeze-triggers that float around your apartment. The house dust mite is actually a tiny insect that thrives off of organic material such as human skin flakes and takes shelter in household dust, and the combination of the two can be a major detriment to allergy-sufferers.

    Though they also are found in bedding, couches and old clothing, the dust mites leave behind a powerful allergen that many people react to strongly.

    One of the only effective means of getting rid of dust mites is installing a professional grade air purifying system. A cutting-edge machine such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus can effectively tackle a range of airborne contaminants, including dust, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, and various other microorganisms.

    The HealthPro Plus contains 5 pounds of activated carbon to eliminate compounds that cause pesky odors and is also equipped with a HyperHEPA filter, the most advanced filter of its class.

  • New study reveals more about the spread of flu

    While many of us are in the practice of washing our hands often and coughing into our sleeves, there appears to be more to preventing the spread of the flu virus.

    Virginia Tech researcher Linsey Marr determined that the flu could indeed be spread simply by breathing the same air as a sick person. Marr and her team of researchers placed air filters around several pubic establishments and later evaluated the filters at the lab, reports.

    "The concentrations are high enough that it is certainly possible that you could go into a room where someone has been sick and been spreading viruses and you could just breathe that air and potentially get the flu," Marr told the news source.

    Of course, this also proves that air filters can be a highly effective means of preventing the spread of airborne illnesses.

  • Scratching the itch: Winter allergies explained

    For many allergy sufferers, various seasons are associated with the corresponding physical ailments they bring. Individuals prone to reactions frequently experience itching, sneezing and runny noses when temperatures shift.

    Dr. Maya Jerath, director of the Allergy and Immunology Clinic at UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine, told the Charlotte Observer exactly why we itch so much in the winter and what the best ways to alleviate these symptoms may be.

    According to Jerath, the fibers that pick up itching signals are distinct from those that pick up pain signals. These fibers can fire in response to both chemical and physical stimuli, hence the reaction many people experience to the chemical histamine. Additionally, winter allergy sufferers itch more during the cold months because their skin is drier, further exacerbating symptoms.

    Jerath acknowledges that while scratching an itch can be satisfying, it can perpetuate the sensation and also break down the skin, making the itching worse.

    To nip this problem in the bud, you may consider investing in a professional-grade air purifying system. The top-rated, best-selling brands carried by FreshAirPro feature cutting-edge filtration technology that effectively tackles allergens, pollen and a range of other contaminants.

  • Los Angeles schools tackle asthma with air filters

    Getting asthma under control may not be easy, but measures can be taken to enhance air quality in the spaces where asthma sufferers spend most of their time.

    The Los Angeles Times reports that over 40 schools in the Wilmington metro area will be equipped with air filtration systems in an effort to reduce asthma symptoms among students. The condition has been linked to elevated pollution levels in the Port of Los Angeles.

    The filters are part of a deal made by environmental groups with the city of L.A. in 2008 to alleviate health symptoms caused by cargo pollution. At least 40 percent of the nation's imported goods come through the port, resulting in high concentrations of harmful contaminants, the news source reports.

    High quality air purifiers such as the ones being installed in the schools use the most effective methods of removing airborne particles and pollution indoors. Those who wish to invest in a filtration system for their own homes should look to FreshAirPro for the highest-rated, best-trusted brands on the market today.

  • Maryland subject to out-of-state air pollution

    Living in a state with strict pollution laws doesn't always mean its residents will be protected from airborne contamination.

    Even though it passed laws several years ago to curb pollutant levels within its own state, Maryland is still at risk for harmful mercury emissions coming from neighboring states, according to the Baltimore Sun.

    Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia have some of the highest levels of mercury emissions in the country. Additionally, many of those harmful toxins migrate directly to Maryland, where 73 percent of all mercury air pollution comes from outside sources, the news source reports.

    Those who are subject to air pollution they can't control can improve the breathing conditions in their homes by installing professional grade air purifying systems.

    Machines with built-in activated carbon, such as the IQAir GC MultiGas, employ the most effective technique to eliminate harmful gases, odors and chemicals from the air. The GC MultiGas works like a professional gas mask to effectively filter allergens, smoke, bacteria and viruses in addition to multiple gas compounds and volatile organic compounds.

  • Expert advice to allay winter allergies

    Many people may already be aware that indoor allergy symptoms peak during the winter season, but not everyone is always informed on what they can do to minimize the effects.

    The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) told HealthDay News that keeping humidity below 55 percent can significantly help alleviate dust mite issues, as too much moisture in the air is conducive to their growth. In addition, the ACAAI recommends changing furnace filters every three months and keeping pets out of bedrooms. Open windows or turn on a fan when showering, and make sure to clean and dust frequently.

    Another way to tackle all these issues at once is to invest in an air purifying system for your home.

    AllerAir air purifiers contain activated carbon in addition to HEPA filters to effectively remove a full range of airborne contaminants, including dust, mold, pet dander, gas, smoke, pollen and chemicals. Activated carbon is the most effective method for removing chemicals, gases and odors, and it's trusted by hospitals. Meanwhile, HEPA filters are equipped to filter 99.97 percent of all airborne particles.
