Since the recent outbreak of swine influenza A (H1N1), more commonly known as swine flu, IQAir has received numerous inquiries about the applicability of its air cleaning systems to address this serious health threat.
SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., Sept. 5, 2012 – IQAir (www.iqair.com), the technology leader in high-performance air purification, today introduced its New Edition room air purifiers. This is IQAir’s most significant upgrade yet to its line of residential high-performance air purifiers. The New Edition offers three advancements:
There are plenty of studies that detail the risks of poor air quality for pregnant women and their fetuses. The studies provide ample evidence that expectant mothers should seriously consider investing in a high-performance air purifier.
When the outdoor air is polluted, one of the safest places to be is indoors, especially where the indoor air is being cleaned by an IQAir high-performance air purifier. That has certainly been the case recently in Salt Lake City, where a polluted mass of air has been stagnating over Utah’s largest urban center.
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, are closely studying the second-largest source of particle air pollution in Southern California: commercial grilling, especially of hamburgers.
There is evidence that the quality of air you breathe at night plays an important role in the quality of sleep you get. In fact, a study by the Harvard School of Public Health found that air pollution significantly increases the risk of a group of disorders known as Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB).
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, is the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart disease and cancer. The most common forms of the disease are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. About 12 million Americans have been diagnosed with COPD, and experts estimate another 12 million remain undiagnosed.
Exposure to traffic-related air pollution during pregnancy and in infancy can double the risk of autism, according to a new study conducted by the University of Southern California and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. In addition, the researchers found that the increase in autism occurred even when the mother did not live near a busy road but was exposed to PM2.5 and PM10 on a regional level.
