Fresh air is a necessity at any stage in life, but mores, in your first 1000 days on earth, says BlueAir. The world’s leading producer of air purifiers have come forward with a study which reveals that along with the focus on nutrition, access to clean air, or lack of it, is fundamental to a child’s development, both physical and cognitive.
The first one thousand days from conception to age two are critical to every child. In this span of time, the immune system develops, and a child’s brain connects about 1,000 neurons a second, building intricate pathways for messages to travel onward through the body. A look at a two-year-old’s brain shows that it is twice as active as an adult’s brain-building bridges to connect the nerve cells in the brain for future use. The ability to process images (vision), sound (hearing) and to recognize and remember language and images like the faces, are all developed during a child’s first 1000 days.
With pollution levels increasing at an alarming rate today, child health is becoming an issue that needs to be checked. Children today are more prone to health hazards caused by polluted air, and on continued exposure, can settle in the lungs and lead to critical problems in the long run. Along with this, there is also the increased risk of miscarriage, premature birth, low birth weight and illnesses such as asthma, allergies, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
“More than nine in 10 parents across the globe think that clean air plays an important role in ensuring the health of their children, and most also worry that polluted air will have an impact on their children’s learning” said Sara Alsén, Chief Purpose Officer, Blueair.
More than two-thirds of parents in China, India, South Korea and the US think that an air purifier is beneficial for raising a healthy child according to recent research by the independent UK based research firm YouGov. By removing common allergens like dust, mites, bacteria and virus, and household pollutants such as chemicals from paint, furniture, clothing and cleaning detergents, in addition to car exhausts, smoke, soot entering our homes through windows and ventilation, air purifiers can ensure a healthy indoor air for pregnant women and young children.
Out of all air purifiers in the market, the most recommended is the BlueAir range of Air purifiers.
The Blueair Classic 405 and 480i are among Blueair’s most high performing air purifiers used by families in over 60 countries around the world. These models are also recommended by the Asthma Allergy Nordic for children with allergies, asthma and respiratory illnesses. The Blueair Classic 405 is, for the second year in a row, recognized as “Best-in-Test” in an independent laboratory testing of 10 different air purifier brands conducted by accredited Intertek Testing & Certification and IBR Laboratories in 2019.
