LightAir IonFlow 50 Air Purifier Tested By Swedish Government Institution. The Results Verify Extreme Efficiency in Removing Fine Particles Which Are Considered the Most Hazardous to Our Health
STOCKHOLM, October 1 /PRNewswire/ -- - Benchmark test by the Swedish National Testing and Research Institute (SP) verifies that LightAir IonFlow 50, compared to other leading air purifiers, is particularly effective in removing the smallest particles which are most hazardous to our health. It also reconfirms its superior energy efficiency and silent operation. Unique technology embedded in award winning Swedish design.
The alarming health problems associated with poor indoor air quality are constantly increasing all over the world. Since we spend the greater part of our lives indoors it is essential to understand what can be done about it. LightAir can be part of the solution to those problems.
We breathe 20 000 litres of air every day. The air is full of particles from a great variety of sources. The overwhelming majority of these particles are so small that they actually enter our blood stream. Recent scientific evidence has proven that the combination of small carbon based particles from fossil combustion and allergens as well as other organic substances in the air actually multiplies the hazardous effects and causes severe health problems (e.g. GSF National Research Center for Environment and Health, Germany).
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continuously works on National Ambient Air Quality Standards for air pollution known as fine particles. The Clean Air Act, which is the foundation for this standard, states that fine particles can cause serious health problems at relatively low concentrations.
Hundreds of community health studies have linked daily increases in fine particle pollution to reduced lung function, greater use of asthma medications, and increased rates of school absenteeism, emergency room visits, hospital admissions and even tens of thousands of premature deaths each year. Combustion of fossil fuels is the major source of fine particle emissions into the atmosphere such as the particles used in the SP test.
