Indoor Air Pollution
So much for simply
removing the sources of pollution. People shed more skin than just about
any other animal. About 80% of what you see floating in a ray
of sunshine entering your home is dead human skin, and we
can only see about 10% of the airborne pollutants. As the primary food
source for dust mites, each flake of skin hosts a multitude of
Inside your home, about 40 pounds of
dust is generated per 1,500 square feet per year. Each speck of dust serves
as a mean of locomotion for about 40,000
and illness-causing bacteria and viruses.

she doesn't have to do as much dusting. - D. Cornett, Tennessee
Not only does the house
always smell clean and fresh we find that there is considerably less dust
than before. - M. Demcho, Ohio
Carpet, Plywood, and other
The "new" smell associated with new carpet, newly painted
walls, new home, remodeled room, etc. is actually the
outgassing of the chemical solutions used to
treat these products. Wood floors are better for the health than carpet,
but carpet is much more affordable.

create a truly artificial environment, by stripping the air of
the same natural elements that make the air in the mountains
so invigorating and healthy. HVAC systems don't just take out the good
elements, but they aslo add harmful elements to the air. Air ducts serves
as a prime breeding ground for mold spores.
We literally poison the air we breathe with
chemical fumes and toxins when we use these products. Out of the more than
600 active ingredients in these products, the EPA has reviewed
only 4 for safety.

Mold spores, bacteria, and mildew thrive in dampened towels, wash
cloths, and moist or humid areas.

Airborne animal dander (dried spit from the animal that breaks
off the end of their hair and floats in air since they are so small) is
a common trigger for allergies and asthma. Plus, the feces
from your pet emits added contaminates into the air.
Insects and other Bugs
Insects and bugs
leave feces throughout the home, which ultimately end up in the air we
breathe. In a recent study by the New England Journal of Medicine, more
than half the homes tested in an extensive study had high levels of
cockroaches. Children living in these homes were more than
three times as likely to be hospitalized for
Food inside the refrigerator, or on the counter, serves as a
breeding ground for bacteria and mold spores, which end up floating in the
air we breathe.
Smoking in the home or vehicle leaves the air being breathed
dense with cancer-causing toxins. Even by smoking outside, toxins from the
3600 chemicals emitted as a result of tabacco
smoke cling to the clothing. Many of these toxins release themselves into
the air once inside.
Children exposed to second-hand smoke are
50% more likely to die of sudden infant death, and suffer from asthma or
upper respiratory disease.

I turn on the PureWise when I light up, and it keeps up with the smoke,
and results in no lingering odor whatsoever.

medications, wood-burning stoves, fireplaces, odors, chemicals from
photography, ceramic glazes, oil paints, dusty closets, plastic shades,
synthetic toys, moldy/dusty wallpaper, cosmetics, nail care products,
scented candles, etc.
Don't forget vehicles.
Recent studies show that most people face their worst
exposure to polluted air while inside their vehicle. Pollen
builds up in your vehicle's a/c system. Plus, exhaust and gasoline fumes
easily enter your vehicle, especially if your "fresh air" vent, or window
is open. This can cause drowsiness, nausea, dizziness, headaches, and
