Heart & Stroke

Heart disease is the second leading cause of death in Canada, and the third is stroke. Research shows that air pollution is a key factor contributing to the prevalence of these diseases. A study published in the American Thoracic Society in 2011 found that reducing indoor air pollution with the use of HEPA filtration improved both blood vessel health and reduced biomarker blood levels, both of which are indicators of heart disease.

Another study published in the journal of the American Heart Association showed that within 2 hours of exposure to high airborne particulate matter, risk of heart attack increased by almost 50%. It has also been found that a reduction in air pollution provides health benefits even when particulate matter levels are already relatively low.

To help make your home healthier, Purahome offers high performance HEPA air purification systems, from whole home to portable options, each being specially designed to meet the needs of you and your family.
