With Delhi Pollution hitting an all-time high, the need of the hour is to look after your health and stay protected. Pollution levels on Sunday crossed the 600-mark (primary pollutant: pm10) early morning, covering the city in a grey blanket of smog. According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), this year the city recorded an AQI (Air Quality Index) of 494, the highest since November 6, 2016 and also considered to be hazardous for health. If you thought air purifiers were a luxury, well, it isn't anymore. Air purifiers are a must-have in your home, car and office to fight toxic levels of air pollution. While the Delhi government has implemented the "odd-even" traffic rationing scheme this Monday in the hope to reduce the choking smog, you too can take measures such as getting air purifiers for home.
Getting the best air purifiers for home doesn't mean that you need to spend huge. There are air purifiers available for all kinds of budgets - even for Rs 5,000 - that will make a difference in fighting the current pollution scenario. By now, we all know how bad pollution in Delhi is, but are you wondering how this is affecting your health? According to health experts, long-term exposure to air pollution can cause permanent health problems such as decreased lung function, accelerated ageing of the lungs, breathing problems, diseases like asthma, bronchitis and possibly cancer. According to World Health Organisation, "The health effects of air pollution are serious - one third of deaths from stroke, lung cancer and heart disease are due to air pollution. This is having an equivalent effect to that of smoking tobacco, and much higher than, say, the effects of eating too much salt." So with AQI at 494, it's as equivalent as smoking more than 100 cigarettes a day.
