Medical Science Links Ultrafine Particles to Cardiovascular Disease

Online PR News – 09-February-2015 – Pulaski, New York – A recent study published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine links indoor air pollution to an increased risk in cardiovascular disease. Conducted by a team of scientists from Denmark and Sweden they discovered that indoor air is polluted with tiny particles that when breathed in reach the bloodstream affecting the performance of blood vessels. Several other studies recently conducted have reinforced this revealing that the smallest air pollutant particles are the most toxic having a larger concentration of chemicals and a larger surface area to thrive compared to larger particles. Ultrafine particle exposure may lead to systematic inflammation through oxidative stress responses.

HealthWay, the global leading medical grade air cleaning manufacturer focuses specifically on ultrafine particle filtration with its latest innovation of DFS filtration technology. DFS filtration has been independently tested to be more than 99.99% efficient at capturing ultra fine particles down to a size of .007 micron, which is 50x more efficient than a similar sized HEPA. A recent study conducted by the University at Buffalo showed efficiencies as high as 99.99% at .002 micron.

Healthway’s medical grade air cleaners utilizing DFS technology, was independently tested by the University of Athens Medical School. Four studies were conducted in the hospital wards of the National Health Care System. Clinical laboratory services showed reduced ultrafine particles, potentially pathogenic and toxicogenic fungi by more than 95% from 2313 CFU’s to less than 2 CFU’s after 24 hours of usage.

We have read countless articles over the years about the dangers of Air Pollution but does the air we breathe actually have a higher mortality rate than smoking does?

According to a study released jointly by Greenpeace and Pecking University it does in China. China has some of the most polluted cities in the world. Residents are breathing in particles smaller than 2.5 microns in size that lodge in a persons lungs. These particles are contributing to a rising premature death rate in China. In six cities, Shijiazhuang, Jinan, Changsha, Chengdu, Nanjing and Wuhan – more than 114 out of every 100,000 people died prematurely because of the health impact of PM2.5. (Particle Matter smaller than 2.5) The study also found in Beijing, China’s capital 79 out of every 100,000 people die prematurely from exposure to air pollution.

Governments around the world have continued to take charge of reducing air pollution in their countries but many initiatives are years if not decades away from seeing positive results. So what can we do today? We can clean our indoor environments, allowing us to reduce our everyday exposure to dangerous microorganisms, volatile organic compounds, particulates and allergens.

Studies show that we spend up to 90% of our time indoors. Installing an air purification system in your indoor environment allows you to breathe the cleanest air possible regardless of what is outdoors.

HealthWay’s commercial and residential air-cleaning products are designed for a wide range of customers around the globe. The company’s patented technology has been proven to be the most efficient line of air cleaners ever developed. Certified independent third party test data supports a filtration efficiency of 99.99% at removing all particles as small as .007 micron which is 50% more efficient than a HEPA filter

We all want to reduce air pollution. People everyday are taking the steps to reduce their carbon footprint outdoors. Now is the time to take care of our indoor environments as well and breathe safer.
