Arming you with the tools for health, longevity, and life without fear
The air you breathe is made up of lots of other things besides oxygen! Oxygen only makes up about 21% of air. About 78% of the air you breathe is made up of another gas called nitrogen. There are also tiny amounts of other gases like argon, carbon dioxide and methane.
When you see smoke billowing out of smoke stacks in your city, do you think there is anything to worry about? The United States is in the middle of the world when it comes to industrial pollution. We are certainly not the worst (China), but we have a ways to go to improve our standing.
My wife grew up in New Orleans and every summer, the "Bug Truck" would come through the neighborhood spraying pesticides into the air to combat the proliferation of mosquitoes in the general area. The kids would run and chase the trucks and unknowingly inhale the dangerous chemicals that are being spewed out into our city.
Covid-19 has dominated our news and our fears in the year 2020, but we do not have to live in fear of a virus if we know how viruses live and more importantly how do they die.
We are breathing in gases from our furniture, carpet, and appliances. Our carpets and cloth furniture emits chemicals daily into our breathing air. Our household cleaners, hand sanitizers, laundry detergent, makeup, hair spray, and many more items in our house are chemical offenders.
The emissions from natural gas-fired boilers and furnaces include nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), trace amounts of sulfur dioxide (SO2), and particulate matter (PM).
Sewage gases are emitted from open toilet drain pipes and definitely can be harmful, especially over a prolonged period, particularly for children and those with breathing ailments. Plugging or covering the pipe immediately and working efficiently in a well-ventilated space can minimize any effects.
