How To Stay Protected Against Water And Air Pollution

by Karan Thapa Business And Marketing
If the Industrial Revolution in the mid-19th century gave birth to phenomenal technological advances, it also brought in its wake new sources of air and water pollution.Coal came into large-scale use and the resulting smog and soot adversely affected the health of the residents of growing urban centers.Since then rapid urbanization on the back of industrial growth has led to the pollution of particulate matter, also called PM, which is derived from a complex mixture that can include ash, soot, diesel exhaust, chemicals, metals, and aerosols.

Air pollution levels in Delhi and North India have hit alarming levels. Considering the situation, please consider before you step out of your home: Have you bought a face mask yet? In fact, you should look for the best anti-pollution mask, which has become a necessity. You must wear a face mask to minimize the ill-effects of pollutants in the air. And not just any mask. It is important that you choose wisely and select the mask that is most effective.

There are basically three kinds of masks/respirators:

•The simple flat mask, also known as a surgical mask that doctors wear.
•The more sophisticated dust and particulate mask is known as a respirator worn by traffic policemen at crossings and tourists
•The gas masks that protect people from inhaling airborne pollutants and toxic gases.

While looking for the best anti-pollution mask, you should take into account the size of the particles it is able to filter out and how best it fits on your face. For instance, if it leaks in from the side, it's not going to work.

Particles are small enough to be breathed into the body, for instance, PM 2.5 is small enough to get down into the lungs. Any combustion process produces particles whether it's vehicles, heating for the home or power generation.
Similar to air, water to has come under assault from numerous types of pollution ever since factories began releasing pollutants directly into rivers and streams with the advent of Industrial Revolution. Sources of drinking water are often contaminated with raw sewage, which leads to diseases such as cholera and typhoid. Today, over 1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe water and every 15 seconds somewhere on the planet, a child dies from a water-related disease.

Under such an alarming situation, water bottle with a filter can protect you against water pollution. Using a refillable, reusable bottle with active carbon filters inside is more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient than using bottled water. As the filter is directly in the bottle, you can refill your bottle at any water source and have it filter the water as you drink. It reduces chlorine taste and odor.The embedded filter generally cleans up to 40 gallons of water and before you need to replace it. You need not buy expensive bottled water, as it provides clean, filtered, refreshing water as you drink. The water bottle with filter comes in easy, stylish squeezable shape; it’s convenient and dishwasher safe.
