In Australia, we’re lucky to have low-levels of pollution, but overseas is another story. Internationally, there is rising alarm about pollution and its impact on public health.

What is pollution, and what effects does it have on health?

Pollution comes from various sources including dust, mould, chemical sprays and toxins, but the pollution we read about in the media is what we commonly call ‘smog.’

The technical term for smog is 'ground level ozone', and it occurs when sunlight combines with chemical pollutants from vehicle and industrial emissions. This is why smog is more common in highly populated industrial cities and is more prevalent in summer or warm climates. Smog levels are at the highest at the end of the day - after a day’s emissions and heat. Frequent exposure to ground level ozone pollution is known to have negative health implications in both the short and long term.

How can air pollution affect me?

Air pollution has a strong effect on people with existing respiratory or health issues like asthma, bronchitis or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Smog aggravates these conditions and may intensify symptoms; coughing, wheezing and inflammation or trigger an asthma attack.

More general effects in healthy people include irritation to the eyes, nose and throat, and an increased chance of respiratory infections. Those most likely to be affected are the very old, very young, pregnant women and people who work or exercise outdoors in high-smog areas, including children.

Long term health impact of pollution exposure

The negative effects of long-term pollution exposure are becoming a grave point of concern for public health. Some potential health risks of long term pollution exposure include:

  • Reduced lung capacity
  • Decreased lung function
  • Greater likelihood of respiratory illness and infection
  • Aggravated cardio vascular illness
  • Premature aging of the lung tissue
  • Shortened life span

Many people feel unable to escape the risk of environmental pollution, with good reason. There are however, some things that may help reduce the impact of pollution on your health.

What you can do to lower your risk

  • Check the Air Quality Index (AQI) in your city or town. Use a website like this as a guide: http://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=airnow.international
  • Manage when and where you exercise; eg. exercise outdoors in the morning only. Don’t exercise near busy roads or industrial areas, and not at all if the AQI is high
  • Avoid being outdoors in the early afternoon or evening, especially on hot days
  • Don’t smoke (!!)
  • Cleanse your respiratory tract often; use a saline solution, eucalyptus steaming or a neti pot
  • Try natural foods, herbs and supplements known to improve or support respiratory health

You can also improve the air quality in your home: keep indoor plants, limit your use of chemical sprays, the burning of wood, gas, candles or incense and invest in a home air purifier*.

*These steps don’t directly address smog, but will improve the air quality your breath most often to help support your lung health and respiratory system.

Boost skin health, look radiant and feel great with 99.9% pure Squalene.

Much like vitamin E, squalane creates a barrier between the skin and the environment so the skin can better retain moisture as it protects the external layer of the epidermis at the same time.

If you’re considering creating a skin regimen based on this oil, you should first learn a bit more about why so many skin care experts find it effective and whether or not you risk suffering any side effects from its use. Squalane as a Moisturiser, squalane is produced naturally by the body, the production of this chemical slows drastically after age thirty, thus contributing to dry skin.

The advantages of Omega-3 intake are certainly outstanding, but how do you get it and how much is sufficient? 

As a result of today’s lifestyle and our Western diet, most people’s Omega-3 levels are way too low.

For good health, it is recommended to get at least two servings of non-fried fish per week.  Oily fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel are good sources of Omega-3 and are easily absorbed by the body.
