Why Children Are More Prone To Air Pollution
Posted: May 29, 2018
It is now universally accepted that the children are far more at risk when they are exposed to polluted air than the adults. There is a plethora of evidence and a number of studies to suggest that ambient air pollution has a direct bearing on the children’s immune system, health, growth, mental alacrity and indeed their overall wellbeing.
More than half of the Indian children today live in areas with unhealthy polluted air. Their developing bodies are more susceptible to harm from pollution. It has been scientifically proved that children are more vulnerable to environmental exposures than adults because:
- Their bodily systems are still developing.
- They eat more, drink more, and breathe more in proportion to their body size.
- Their behavior can expose them more to chemicals and organisms.
Since children are always want to play outside it would indeed be a great dampener of their spirits if they were asked to remain indoors. At the same time, their health cannot be jeopardized so what is the way out, especially in winters when the air quality is particularly low and PM 2.5 levels are so high that even the healthy adults are advised to refrain from going out in the open.
In this situation, the anti-pollution mask can be a very good idea as now a number of brands are making anti-pollution masks for the children. Vogmask a premium brand of the anti-pollution mask is indeed the best bet as it is N-99 certified and so can effectively block PM 2.5 which is the silent killer and can cause liver damage, asthma, kidney damage, heart diseases and even cancer.
Vogmask has come up with Pollution Mask for Children which are stylish and fit perfectly on the face of children. Since children need to wear them while playing they have ensured that the mask does not become inconvenient. It has been provided with activated carbon which is effective against pathogens and other bacteria.
Similarly, there are now water bottles available for the children which ensure that children do not have to drink contaminated water while they are playing on the ground or are away on a picnic. Kids Bobble Water Bottle is a great solution for children as it provides an endless supply of drinkable water anywhere. It converts tap water into pure drinking water with its filters.
