You’ll Never Believe What’s In The Air You Breathe

Filed under: Health — @ December 15, 2006

EWWW! Was I REALLY breathing in all of that into my lungs?!

Too often when you talk about a healthy lifestyle, the discussion generally tends to center around diet and exercise. While both of those are certainly very important parts of your overall health, there’s another factor that should be considered just as much–INDOOR AIR QUALITY! The air that you breathe and everything that’s in it enters your body through your nose and mouth on a daily basis. Do you think that air you are breathing is as clean as it can be?

Well, I mistakenly thought the air in my house was pretty clean until I had it tested using an air quaility testing kit about a week ago. The results of that test you can see at the top of this blog post in the actual petri dish that revealed what was in the air of my home. Yuck! What is all of that?! Well, the shiny white spots are bacteria, the shiny yellow spots are yeast, and the fuzzy white and black spots are mold. Gasp! And that’s what I’ve been breathing into my body! EEEK!

The unfortunate part of an enclosed building like your home or office is that all of these contaminants can and will pollute the air and cause problems with various parts of your health. Whether you have breathing problems, allergies, frequent sore throats, or other illness, all of that junk in the air can wreak havoc on you. The indoor air pollutants are as much as 100 TIMES HIGHER than outdoor levels especially during the winter when the windows and doors are sealed shut to keep out the cold. Since most people spend as much as 90 percent of their day indoors, this is an issue that needs to be addressed.
