Researches show that dirty air may raise the risk of premature birth

According to the Danger in the air published by UNICEF, air pollution might be the most vital threat to children’s’ health.  Other researches have even found that air pollutants harm us far more than second-hand smoke.

  • The health effect of PM2.5

There are many contaminants in the air, in which dust-like particles floating in the air with a size of 2.5 μm are called PM2.5.

PM2.5 can lead to respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, and asthma. Smaller particles can circulate through the microvascular system and induce cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and stroke.
