What air we breathe?

For functioning of an organism are necessary first of all food, water and air. Without food we can how many - that to live, without water it is less. Air is necessary always!

Using time, we choose food especially carefully. Culinary recipes exist not one thousand years and are constantly improved. Look how many articles are devoted to food in Shkolezhizni .

The last years we also pay to water attention. We clear, we buy in bottles. And tap water, despite the amplifying criticism, can be drunk. From a pool we do not drink!

And here air we breathe, as from a pool. What is! Are compelled!

And what there, in this air pool around us?

First of all, it is nitrogen, oxygen, argon and carbon dioxide. The nature always supported their balance. Smells, even unpleasant, were environmentally friendly too. Dust - natural. The nature perfectly coped with destruction of any evil spirits.

The last decades rough scientifically - technical progress besides conveniences and comfort presented to mankind various harmful chemical compounds.

the Nature does not cope with such loading any more, and we receive decrease in immunity, various allergies and other inadequate reactions of an organism. Our immune system spends 80% of the resources for neutralization of harmful factors of environment now. And too not always copes.

Than us made happy progress? It:

Carbon monoxide. Sources in the atmosphere: motor transport, combustion of coal and oil, steel-smelting production. Causes asthma, strikes warmly - vascular system, breaks work of blood system.

Formaldehyde. Sources in the atmosphere: furniture, motor transport, chemical production. Irritates mucous membranes of eyes and a nose.

The nitrogen oxides which mainly are formed owing to secondary reactions of compounds of nitrogen also connect with respiratory and is warm - vascular diseases:

Nitrogen oxide. Sources in the atmosphere: gas stove, motor transport, combustion of coal and oil. Easily passes into nitrogen dioxide.

nitrogen Dioxide. the Source in the atmosphere: it is formed on solar to light of nitrogen oxide. At the same time in the troposphere ozone which in the lower layers of the atmosphere is a pollutant is formed. At hit in an upper atmosphere - a stratosphere - dioxide of nitrogen destroys an ozone layer of the earth. Dioxide of nitrogen causes bronchitis, lowers organism resilience to respiratory diseases.

Ozone. Sources in the atmosphere: it is formed on solar to light at reaction of nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons. Irritates mucous an eye, aggravates asthma.

Hydrocarbons. Sources in the atmosphere - vapors of not burned down gasoline. On solar to light reacts with nitrogen oxides and forms a photochemical smog.

SIR (peroxyacetyl hydronitrate) . Sources in the atmosphere: it is formed on solar to light at reaction of nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons. Irritates mucous an eye, aggravates asthma.

Nitric acid. Source: nitrogen dioxide reactions in the atmosphere. In high concentration leads to emergence of acid rains. Causes respiratory diseases.

Sulfuric acid. the Source in the atmosphere: it is formed on solar to light at reaction of dioxide of sulfur and ions of a hydroxyl (OH-). Causes respiratory diseases.

Nitrogenous acid. Comes to the atmosphere as a result of reactions between dioxide of nitrogen and vapors of water. Causes respiratory diseases.

Arsenic. Sources in the atmosphere: coal and oil furnaces, glass production. Causes destruction of vegetative nervous system, paralysis of blood system, a metabolic disorder. Influence throughout long time can lead to lung cancer and skin.

Benzene. Sources in the atmosphere: oil refineries, automobile exhausts. Influence throughout long time can cause leukemia.

Chlorine. Sources in the atmosphere: chemical production. Causes irritation of mucous fabrics.

Chloride hydrogen. Sources in the atmosphere: waste burning plants, chemical production. Irritates mucous membranes of eyes and lungs.

Fluoric hydrogen. Sources in the atmosphere: plants on production of mineral fertilizers, steel-smelting production. Irritates skin, eyes, mucous membranes.

Hydrogen sulfide. Sources in the atmosphere: oil refineries, treatment facilities, tsellyulozno - paper production. Makes sick, irritates eyes.

Manganese. Sources in the atmosphere: metallurgical production, power plants. Influence throughout long time can cause Parkinson`s illness.

Sulfur dioxide. Sources in the atmosphere: combustion of oil and coal, steel-smelting production. Dioxide of sulfur is the reason of acid rains. Lowers resilience to respiratory diseases, irritates mucous an eye.

This dry, but scary list is not full.

The chief state health officer of Russia Gennady Onishchenko recognized that: The Number of death from - for pollution of atmospheric air makes 21 thousand on 22,4 million people. These are 7% of annual death of Russians .

You wanted to disappear from all this behind plastic windows? It will not turn out! All the same all this rubbish will get into the apartment when airing. And inside there are also sources of pollution: walls, ceilings, furniture (especially from a chipboard) carpets, and also various artificial coverings, varnishes and paints, household chemicals. Organic substances, a mold, fungi and bacteria which sources are insects, pets and ourselves.

And many of us also did not think of it! Only not always felt well.

Well, for fear intercepted breath? Then you do not breathe yet. In the following article I will tell how it is possible to purify air. And not by means of ionizers which persuasive advertizing offers them for all occasions. They will only make the listed above chemistry more harmful!
