You’ve brought your hand sanitizer, but you also know you’ll be breathing the same recycled air for the duration of your flight.
You’re on the bus and you see someone who is clearly sick wipe their runny nose and grab the handrail. You think to yourself “don’t touch that!” and then spray hand sanitizer all over. But are you safe? No. Because while you were on that bus, you were breathing in the infected air they were breathing out.
Viruses can enter the respiratory tract in the form of aerosolized droplets when an infected individual coughs or sneezes. The good news is, you can protect yourself – with O2 Nose Filters!
The Commuter Cold and Particulate Matter
If you frequently take the subway to work, you’re probably well aware of some of the disadvantages to public transportation like the “commuter cold”. The effects of germs spread through public transit generally pass within the week, but are you aware of the long-lasting impact of train pollution?
According to the Journal of Aerosol Science, the typical commuter spends 3% of their day inside the subway system, but that accounts for 47% of their daily exposure to particulate matter.

While exploring new places is an adventure, one thing to consider is how the air quality in these other countries could be affecting your health.
