Air pollution affects everyone. It’s important to think in terms of ‘One atmosphere’. The World Health Organization says that air pollution is the biggest environmental health risk. It says there are 3.7 million deaths every year attributable to outdoor air pollution and 4.3 million deaths attributable to indoor air pollution. The very fine particles, like PM1, penetrate deep into the lungs inflame the cardiovascular system and can reach the brain and other vital organs. It is important to advise people about the dangers of air pollution and in particular PM1.

What is PM1

Air pollution is real so why don’t we see reports about PM1 the most dangerous particulate matter and the effects they have on the human body.
See and learn more about PM1 and why we should be concerned about the so called protection of being indoors.

The air we breathe.

We breathe every four seconds, twenty-two thousand breathes a day. In highly polluted areas such as inner cities. We breathe in more than fifty billion particles with each breath we take. Fine dust, viruses and bacteria. We’re also exposed to countless other health endangering particles. This is especially the case in indoor spaces in which we spend up to ninety percent of our time.

Camfil fights for clean air as a human right and ensures that future generations will be able to breathe deeply with total confidence.
