With each breath, we inhale about a half a liter of air from our environment. If the air we pull in is clean, we stay healthy. If it has contaminants in it, it could make us sick. Just how healthy is the air you breathe every day?
Our built environments are becoming contaminated by the very things we install to make our lives comfortable, colorful, and interesting. Plastics and resins from carpeting and furnishings outgas petroleum byproducts. Flame retardants and stain repellents inject chemicals related to cancer, infertility, birth defects, early puberty, obesity, and autism. Personal care products send out fragrances that act as endocrine disruptors. Then there are the chemicals operating in stealth mode, without scent, color, or taste, quietly streaming into our environment undetected.
Few of us know how contaminated the air that we breathe really is, 12 to 20 times a minute, 60 minutes per hour, 24 hours per day. We assume that our government is overseeing the situation, with officials checking construction, administrators monitoring details, managers keeping tabs on maintenance, and congressmen on the lookout for danger, but that is not always the case.
It is hard for governments to cover all the bases these days. If you’d really like to know what’s in the air you breathe, it’s best to take control by monitoring your own space.
