Air Filter Manufacturer Camfil USA Explains Alerts Global Health Crisis

So how exactly has air pollution grown to become such a global health crisis?



Air Quality Alert / April 4, 2019/ -- If you thought we had already solved the problem of air pollution with the passing of the Clean Air Act, think again. Air pollution seems to be on the rise, forcing homeowners and families indoors to consider the protection of high efficiency home air filters. And contrary to popular belief, it’s not just cars and trucks that are filling our cities with particle pollution and all kinds of toxic fumes.

The problem has become so bad that toxic air has been identified by organizations like the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the biggest environmental risk of premature death responsible for one in nine of all deaths around the world.

In fact, air pollution, whether from outdoor or indoor sources, claims over a million lives a year—far more than malaria, tuberculosis and HIV combined. Dr. Maria Neira, WHO Director of the Department of Public Health, Environmental and Social Determinants of Health, went so far as to call it a “global public health emergency.”

So how exactly has air pollution grown to become such a global health crisis?
