The Effects of Air Quality on Longevity, Aging, & Overall Health--And How You Can Beat The Odds

Air quality has long been linked to health, with better air quality generally meaning better health. It’s also been proven recently that poor air quality (especially poor indoor air quality) can cause various health issues, weakens our immune systems, and with enough exposure can shorten our lives.  The problem is that most of us are spending upwards of 90% or more of our time indoors every day, where pollutants build up, from pollutants inside the home and coming in from the outside through the A/C system.  

When we breathe this ‘toxic soup’ of dust, dust mites, fibers, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, chemicals from cleaning products & solvents,, etc., on a regular basis, this causes our immune systems to be on ‘high alert’ much of the time, resulting in various types of inflammation. This chronic inflammation eventually weakens the body and the immune system to the point where bacteria, viruses, and other germs can get a foothold, resulting in disease, system malfunctions, sensitivities like allergies and asthma, as well as premature or accelerated aging.  This is one reason why we often feel like we don’t have the energy that we used to. The toxins that build in our indoor air end up building up in the body and can and do interfere with the reactions that product ATP or our main energy molecule.  

The body’s repair mechanisms can be damaged, as well, by toxins found in indoor air—which directly affects the aging process.  Aflatoxins, a compound produced by mold, is especially toxic and one of the most carcinogenic substances known to man.  Aflatoxins damage nerve and other types of cells (especially liver cells), which leads to liver and nervous system malfunctions, ‘dirty blood’ loaded with toxins the liver can’t remove adequately, and sometimes cancerous growth. Even if you only have a little mold in your home, that little amount likely produces aflatoxins and once they build up in our bodies, they can cause increased or accelerated aging simply because our body’s repair and waste removal systems (i.e. liver) aren’t working properly.  Dirty blood = poor cell health & decreased ability to repair = aging.

The obvious solution to this problem is to protect yourself and your family by using quality indoor air purification systems—simply remove the pollutants from the air instead of breathing them. Your air conditioner filters aren’t much help, by the way, as they 1) can’t stop chemical or gas pollutants, 2) aren’t able to trap the sub-micron size particles because the pore size is too large, and 3) all the pollutants stuck to interior walls of the ducts after the A/C filter are free to blow out into your home or office.  This is why you have to use a secondary electronic HEPA air filtration system to get clean air. 

Now, whether you choose an electronic whole house air cleaner or portable air purifiers, you do want to make sure that the unit(s) has a true HEPA filter and lots of high quality carbon in the carbon filter. You need the true HEPA filter to remove those dangerous, tiny sub-micron particles like dust, dust mites, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, etc.   High quality activated carbon filters are needed, as well, to remove any chemical residues that are in the air, especially the aflatoxins, which can exist in gas or vapor form. Without a few pounds of good carbon, you’ll be breathing all that stuff. With a good home air filtration systems, however, you’ll not only reduce or stop allergies & asthma, you’ll most likely live longer, age more slowly, and may avoid a lot of diseases entirely.
