With rising pollution levels increasing air toxicity, scientists have been working hard to uncover new ways to create clean, breathable air worldwide.
We are all familiar with the dangers of secondhand smoke. We know that cars and trucks emit carbon monoxide. But even pollutants like building dust, burning waste, and mold can irritate the nose, throat, eyes, and in high levels, contribute to respiratory diseases.
So, how can you protect your breathing? With O2 Nose Filters – a discreet and effective way to protect yourself against harmful particulate matter!
What is Air Pollution?
Pollution is generally comprised of a blend of particulate matter (PM) – gases, chemicals, and biological materials – that are circulating in the air we breathe. We all inhale a certain amount of pollution on a daily basis, regardless of where we live, but it can become a problem if there are excessive amounts of pollutants in the air. Even short exposure time to contaminants can irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, and can cause coughing and shortness of breathe.
Urban Air Pollution on City Transportation
The demand for public transportation increases as the population rises in urban areas. While public transportation’s impact on the environment is actively decreasing with clean technology, lower carbon emissions, and reduced gasoline use, there is still an effect on urban air pollution and the passengers.
Air Contaminant Exposure in Subways
While making your way through the subway system, you spend time standing on the platform and riding the train. Particulate Matter (PM) can come from outside the subway system, but the majority of PM found in the subway is caused by mechanical abrasion of rail tracks, wheels, catenary chains, and brake pads.
