Dirty air triggers more heart attacks than cocaine!

When we think of the risks affiliated with breathing in bad air we normally think of increased allergies & respiratory problems. A recent study explained that "air pollution triggers more heart attacks than using cocaine and poses as high a risk of sparking a heart attack as alcohol, coffee and physical exertion". Can you imagine that!? Living an overall healthy lifestyle free of drugs and excessive alcohol can still result in premature death due to not breathing in clean air? The World Health Organization (WHO) describes air pollution as "a major environmental risk to health" and estimates that it causes around 2 million premature deaths worldwide every year. This is just in relation to outdoor air pollution; when you think of this and consider that the quality of our indoor air may be up to 100 times more polluted than our outdoor air it really makes you wonder.

I don't know about you, but I don't like those statistics. Considering we can't control the quality of the outdoor air we breathe, we need to focus on what we can control- the air we breathe in our homes and offices. There are many air filtration systems out on the market that claim to address one of many problems such as dust, pollen, pet dander, odors, gas, bacteria, mold, etc. but there isn't a product like Carico's Nutri-Tech Air Filtration System out on the market that can address all of these problems in one compact unit. How important is your health and that of those you love?
