Improve IAQ to Banish Alzheimer's

An article recently published in Scientific American shows that there are strong links between exposure to air pollution and late-onset Alzheimer's (see solutions at the end).

Summary


Fine particle matter, a 30th the diameter of a human hair, contain several toxic substances that can damage brain cells.


The burning of burning oil, gas, and coal spews noxious gases such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, while dust is emitted heavily from car and truck brakes, tires, and clutches.


In Ontario, Canada, people living within 50 meters of a major road where levels of fine pollutants are very high, are 12 percent more likely to develop dementia than individuals living more than 200 meters from the same road.


In late-onset Alzheimer's, 40 to 65 percent of the risk involves nongenetic influences, such as lifestyle and harmful environmental exposure, air pollution being one of the leading factors.


What to do?


Since there is no cure for Alzheimer's and dementia, prevention is the best method. And while you can't control the outside air quality, you can control your indoor air quality. By optimizing your indoor air quality, you reduce your risk of such devastating diseases such as Alzheimer's and dementia.


The CareTac IAQ Solution can help you, your company, building, home, etc. optimize its indoor air quality.
