air purification

"Air purifiers may help control the levels of airborne particles including those associated with allergens." - United States Environment Protection Agency

"In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors." - Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency

"50% of illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air." - American College of Allergists

"More than 220 million Americans breathe air that is 100 times more toxic than the goal set by Congress 10 years ago, according to figures calculated by the Environmental Defense Fund. And for 11 million people, the cancer risk from their neighborhood air is more than 1,000 time higher than Congress's goal, the group says."      - CNN

Houseplants are great air purifiers in homes and offices. Houseplants with large leaves remove more toxins. Here are the results of a NASA research study: 15 plants that could clean your air for just the price of a few drops of water each day.
