Mother Nature Exacerbates Man-Made Pollution

Mother Nature Exacerbates Man-Made Pollution

Greater awareness of the dangers associated with air pollution is growing, but weather conditions can exacerbate the effects of air pollution and increase the risk to health. Air pollution comes in many forms, ranging from man-made contaminants to those originating from nature.

Face masks, oxygen stations, and air quality warnings are commonplace occurrences for many people, especially those living in large cities, but even individuals living in rural areas are subject to the effects of weather and seasonal elements when they combine with air pollution.

In cold climates, the emissions from winter heating systems and fireplaces place additional contaminates into the air, thereby increasing the levels of air pollution. A weather phenomenon known as an inversion can occur during any season, causing cold air to be trapped near ground level by a layer of warmer air, preventing contaminants from rising and being dispersed.

Rain, wind and snow help cleanse the air, but damp weather and high humidity levels that accompany warmer months increase the growth of mold and fungus. When spores are released within indoor environments, they combine with poor ventilation to decrease air quality. Outdoor winds disperse molds and fungi throughout the environment in the same way, but to a much greater segment of the population.

The hot temperatures of summer contribute to the formation of ground level ozone, one of the four most dangerous elements found in air pollution. The heat that comes with sunny days interacts chemically with air pollutants to form increased ozone at ground level that can produce effects on the body similar to severe allergies and heat stroke.

The particles in air pollution enter the body where they form free radicals. The body produces glutathione to neutralize free radicals, but can easily become overwhelmed past its ability to adequately protect the body. There are measures that everyone can take to help protect themselves from pollutants that are equally appropriate within all weather conditions.*

  • Monitor air quality index levels and plan activities when pollution levels are lowest
  • Check the weather for high temperatures and pollen levels that exacerbate already existing pollution levels
  • Maintain as much distance as possible from construction areas and roadways, especially during high traffic times
  • Remove clothing after extended outside exposure and shower to remove particles from the skin and hair
  • Employ an air purifier, especially during sleep times
  • Use an antioxidant supplement

Man-made pollutants continue to fill the air and combine with those from nature to create dangerous levels of air pollution that represents a danger to everyone. The body’s ability to manufacture glutathione can be hindered by situations ranging from a poor diet to a compromised immune system and an antioxidant supplement can be one of the most convenient ways to obtain the needed nutrients for the creation of glutathione.*

The RxQ Antioxidant Complex provides individuals with a single source for the wide range of raw ingredients that can be helpful in glutathione production. Our unique and innovative formula is the result of years of research and the best medical science available.*
