Blue Air advocates people on clean air and lung health on World COPD Day

On the occasion of the World COPD Day, I visited an initiative by renowned air purifier company, Blueair. At Cyber Hub Gurgaon, the company set up a home experience zone with its entire range of air purifiers which is quite huge. COPD is basically Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

Air pollution is a major health and environmental problem today. People with respiratory problems, especially children are quite at risk. The levels of particulate matter (PM) 2.5 have serious health implications such as asthma, bronchitis, chronic respiratory symptoms including, shortness of breath etc. Leading doctors and environmentalists, educated people at the event and urged them to take steps to control and combat pollution.

I also met, Mr. Arvind Chabra, who is the country head, Blueair India. he emphasised the need of recognising indoor pollution which is way hazardous than outdoor pollution. Because of the simple fact that we spend most of our times indoors than outdoors and that indoor pollutants have little chance of escape as compared to outdoor pollutants which keep on circulating.Air purifiers are one of the effective solutions to maintain the indoor air healthy. He also guided through the entire Blueair range which is huge. They have different variants depending on the utility and use of the consumer with some very great features.

According to the WHO, around 65 million people globally, suffer from moderate to severe COPD. It is important and crucial to recognise its problem and take steps to keep the surrounding air clean and pure.
