February 4th, World Cancer Day is an important time to reflect on the increasingly clear impact of poor air quality on cancer rates.
This begs a fundamental question – what can be done to reduce the incidence of sickness caused by poor air quality?
One formidable weapon in the battle against bad air is filtration. Particulate matter (PM) affects more people than any other airborne pollutant. PM consists of a complex mixture of solid and liquid particles of organic and inorganic substances suspended in the air. Its major components are sulphate, nitrates, ammonia, sodium chloride, black carbon, mineral dust and water.
Filters that conform with the test standard ISO 16890:2016 offer powerful protection against these and other particulates. People with a sedentary lifestyle typically breathe 15 kg of air each day.
Camfil has proven that using high quality filters with a high efficiency rating is the best way to protect building occupants in urban locations.
In highly polluted areas, we breathe more than 25 million particles with each breath. As per research conducted by University of British Columbia, there are 5,5 million premature deaths around the world each year due to air pollution.
World Cancer Day is an international day marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection and treatment.
