The Benefits of Fresh Air for your Health

Clean air is vital to optimum health, but often we live in areas that are polluted with smog, chemicals and other irritants. The best way to get clean air is to find or "create" it. Find clean air by looking for the trees - they are the best air purifiers around. If you live in an urban area, go to parks where there are lots of trees - you'll notice the improved purity of the air. Create clean air indoors by getting rid of pollutants like aerosol sprays, paints, incense and chemical products, and try growing indoor plants. A HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter is good for those with allergies to pollen, dust or other airborne particles, and for those who live with a smoker, or live in a smoggy urban area. Finally, you can help neutralize inhaled pollutants by eating lots of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables and taking a high-quality antioxidant.
