One of the great challenges of our time is "clean breathing air"!
How long can people survive without breathing air?
40 days without food, 4 days without water, 4 minutes without air!
We spend up to 90% of our time indoors!
Humans breathe up to 29,000 times a day!
We are the “Indoor Generation”!
The-Fraunhofer-Institute, Germany found that the indoor air pollutant load is often many times higher than the pollution of outdoor air.
Respiratory air contaminated with toxicants (VOC toxins) and pathogens is increasingly recognized as one of the main problems of causing diseases that go far beyond respiratory illnesses:
Allergies, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infectious diseases in general, as well as the increasing problem of severe diseases caused by multidrug-resistant germs.
These illnesses and their consequences lead to impairments in the workplace, in private life and in our development of a positive, healthy, self-determined life.
Good air quality is also an important factor in our psyche and well-being. Increased concentrations of pollutants lead to fatigue, lack of concentration, loss of performance, headaches and many other disorders.
Breathing air can leave you "healthy", breathing air can make you "sick".
According to the WHO, about 33% of all deaths worldwide are caused by communicable diseases (germs, viruses, bacteria).
INDOOR AIR TOXINS (VOC poisons) – a bad atmosphere!
The industry is inventive. There are over 100,000 chemical substances and more than one million chemical compounds, but only about 400 limits.
They are found in building materials, plastics, adhesives, paints, coatings, appliances, carpets, wallpapers, textiles, all kinds of furniture, cleaning agents, wood preservatives and insecticides, and they also reach the interiors from the environment.
The toxic cocktails in the air created by gassing enter our body via the respiratory system, the lungs and skin as well as the mucous membranes and are deposited in our entire organism.
They disturb, irritate, burden the organism and cause diseases.
Modern medicine has come to the conclusion that many diseases are ultimately attributable to respiratory air contaminated by pollutants and pathogens.
Contaminated air is the largest environmental factor-based health risk.
WHO Director Maria Neira, Genev
Pathogens, germs, viruses and bacteria are in the air, especially in times when many people are already infected (e.g. flu epidemic) and the respiratory air in their immediate environment is highly enriched with pathogens. At the workplace, in hospitals and in doctors' surgeries, the illness is constantly passed on.
Resistances are being built up and even preventive medicine (e.g. flu shots) are no guarantee to stay safe from illness and its unpleasant, sometimes even dangerous consequences.
Polluted indoor air costs 3,500,000 lives every year - by far the largest environmental problem in the world.
Prof. Björn Lomborg - Copenhagen Business School, Project Syndicate 2014
There is an urgent need for action! Because of
Sick Building Syndrome
Building Related Illness
Office Eye Syndrome
are consequences of lack of indoor air quality.
In addition to toxins (VOC toxins) and germs, viruses and bacteria in the respiratory air - particulate matter, low oxygen content, high CO² concentrations, dry air, too high ozone and nitric oxide concentrations are further stress factors, which must be reduced.
Our health - our life - our quality of life
It is about health, precaution and responsibility, for children, family, employees and the public.
Pollutants and pathogens
Also indirectly, pollutants enter through our lungs, our mucous membrane and our blood through many other organs and bodily processes, disturb them, irritate them, burden them.
It is about creating a "healthy life" with a positive future.
Eliminating the initiators of diseases.
Prevention as forward-looking, responsible action.
