LIFE DESIGN SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES, 'THERE'S A SOLUTION TO THE INDOOR AIR CRISIS'
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Sept. 12, 2003 (Send2Press Newswire) -- Many people
BELIEVE that if they are INDOORS, they are safe from air pollution.
According to Life Design Systems, AIR POLLUTION can occur indoors as well
as outdoors, and may be even more harmful indoors. Air pollution research
shows that 70% of outdoor air pollutants flow indoors so they are found in
the indoor air environment as well.
In fact, indoor levels of pollutants may be 5 times to 1000's of TIMES
HIGHER than outdoor levels, because in addition to the outdoor pollutants
that come inside, there are many indoor sources of air pollution. (For
example, TOXIC MOLD, MILDEW, SMOKE ODORS, PET ODORS, BACTERIA & Carbon
Monoxide from home furnaces).
Over 2 billion people WORLDWIDE use traditional fuels for cooking and home
heating. According the World Health Organization (WHO), this widespread
use results in the premature deaths of an estimated 2 MILLION PEOPLE
annually, with women and children being most significantly affected.
Most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, so in addition to the
possibility of being exposed to more pollutants indoors, we are exposed to
them for long periods of time. CHILDREN are especially susceptible to air
POLLUTION because of their fast metabolism and their rapidly growing body
tissues such as lungs, heart, and nervous system.
* The energy crisis of the 70's brought the indoor air crisis of the 90's.
Now studies show that the air inside your home may be five times more
polluted than the air outside your home.
* The term "Sick Building Syndrome" becomes a part of the American
vocabulary as a way to describe this disease of modern architecture.
* Quoting Marilyn Chase from a December '98 Wall Street Journal article:
Wall to wall carpet, poorly ventilated fireplaces, kerosene heaters, mold
and bacterial toxins, dust mites an almost endless collection of highly
allergic products have invaded our homes and we have sealed them in with
