Wildfire Smoke and The HealthMate Plus Air Purifier
Wildfire season (which historically took place in summer and fall) is a thing of the past. We are now seeing “wildfire years” – seasons that last all year long. Fires are burning bigger, faster, and hotter, with each wildfire year more damaging than the one before it. And this is having a grave impact, not just on a select few, but on all of humanity.
Because wildfire smoke doesn’t stay put. It has been known to travel thousands of miles, affecting nearly everyone on the planet. That’s why we’ve compiled these educational resources and safety tips. Because knowledge is power. Understanding how wildfires impact human health is the first step to truly protecting yourself and your family.
A recent study from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, found that smoke from wildfires can be up to 10 times more dangerous than other types of pollution, even traffic emissions.
