-- Recent studies prove indoor air is even worse than outdoor air. Developing Countries are faced with a problem without an easy fix. One company is on a mission to help major corporations and howeowners in developing coutries by providing a true "breath of fresh air"
As bad as the air is outside in developing countries indoor air is even worse. For the last three weeks, residents of Beijing have been breathing thick, soupy air so choked with pollutants that it has registered far off the scale of acceptable levels.
Yet places like Beijing or New Delhi, India, which has also had extremely unhealthy air quality levels, are far from the only cities to be plagued. Air pollution
affects practically everyone on the planet and causes more than 6 million premature deaths every year, according to the World Health Organization. Yet, this insidious and long-standing issue really only generates headlines when it hits extreme levels.
ABC News correspondent Gloria Riviera reports that levels in Beijing averaged 300 on the Air Quality Index
(AQI), a whopping 280 points over what WHO says is good, clean air. Optimal AQI is just 20.
"Indoor air pollution
mostly affects developing countries," said Riviera. "Half the world still relies on solid fuels like wood for heating and cooking. It's inefficient and damaging to health and causes 3.5 million premature deaths every year."
By contrast, outdoor air pollution affects emerging and developed countries and prematurely kills 3.3 million people every year, because of pollution from industrial uses and manufacturing, and energy inefficiency.
One company is on a mission to help address the dreaded indoor air quality issue in developing countries. HealthWay the Global Leader in innovative air cleaning equipment has partnered with major corporations around the globe, like China Mobile, Indian Tobacco Company,Cleveland Clinics, and PURE Global who provide state of the art allergy friendly environments to global hotel chains like Hyatt, Starwood, Hilton and Marriot brands just to name a few. HealthWay's latest innovation filters 100% of incoming air into any structure basically eliminating up to 100% of all dangerous particles down to .002 micron. Dr. Raymond Cipriano, Senior Scientist for Industry/University center for bio-surfaces tested & studied HealthWay's product by using a condensation nuclei counter, known to measure all airborne particles even the smallest viruses. "Testing verified that HealthWay removed all virus-sized particles entering it. The smallest viruses (the Parvovirus) are about 20nm in diameter, or 0.02 microns. The results were astounding," stated Dr. Cipriano. Vinny Lobdell President of Pulaski based HealthWay stated, "We truly are on a mission to educate and provide true solutions to the very serious indoor air quality problem." Whether it is a skyscraper in Shanghai or a residential dwelling in Syracuse we have developed patented air cleaning that truly takes healthy environments to another level.
