WAY TO WELLNESS #45

There are many benefits to having plants in your living spaces. Studies suggest that plants have positive health and wellness impacts including lower blood pressure, increased productivity, and improved well-being.

Studies also show that rooms with plants contain up to 60% fewer airborne molds and bacteria, and NASA tested a number of common houseplants against indoor air pollutants, particularly ammonia and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, benzene, toluene, and xylene. High levels of VOCs in the indoor air result in several health problems, collectively called ‘sick building syndrome’. Some of them, like benzene, are known carcinogens. This chemical leaches into the air from plastics, synthetic fibers and resins in the house and can cause nausea, vomiting, and dizziness. Formaldehyde emitted by paints and varnishes and the adhesives used in wall boards can irritate the respiratory tract and cause allergies.

Do you have some air cleaning plants in your living spaces already? If not, go out and get one today!
