New research shows that the damaging impact air pollution has on human health can last for decades. The study is included in a limited body of research that evaluates the very long-term impact of individuals who have sustained health complications as a result of breathing polluted air, which is a stark change from the wealth of research that provides evidence of short-term damaging effects.

“Since the 1950s a lot of evidence has accumulated that high levels of air pollution cause harmful effects on health. However there is limited evidence on the very long term (>25 years) effects of air pollution. Our study is one of the longest running to date looking at air pollution and mortality, following 368,000 people in England and Wales for 38 years.”
A report on the research was released by the Royal College of Physicians in February 2016. Dr. Rebecca Ghosh, a Research Associate with the Small Area Health Statistics Unit (SAHSU)
MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health Imperial College in London has stated of the results, “We think our study adds another reason to try to reduce air pollution as much as we can as our results indicate this could result in short and very long term health consequences.”
How Air Purifiers Can Help Reduce Indoor Pollution Related Health Risks
Poor air quality outdoors can impact indoor air quality, particularly if one has a poorly maintained HVAC system. Ineffective systems leave individuals exposed to airborne pollutants that can lead to a wide range of health problems. Bacteria, viruses, and even droppings from dust mites are examples of the types of contaminants that can be funneled through systems that fail to meet expected quality standards.
Camfil air purifiers help dramatically reduce indoor air pollution that can have damaging effects on human health. The company says of the range of CamCleaners available to help building owners and operators purify the air in their facilities, “CamCleaner is a range of patented air cleaners with the most efficient HEPA filters on the market. They are designed to work as a supplement to an existing ventilation system and deliver reduced energy costs, more efficient production and a healthier work environment with less dust and fewer harmful particles.”
Camfil’s clean air solutions also help reduce costs associated with overstressed HVAC systems and air filters such as those for waste removal, higher energy costs, and frequent air filter changes.
For Those Seeking Help With Improving Indoor Air Quality
