[Announcement] Air-Pollution Causes Over 1 Million Deaths Across India: IMHE

According to the latest report published by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IMHE), air pollution is now clearly recognized as an important global risk factor for diseases. Studies of long-term exposure to air pollution demonstrate that people living in more polluted locations die prematurely, compared with those living in areas with lower levels of pollution. Their research provides details on how air pollution affects human health, with evidence clearly showing impacts on the rates of cardiovascular disease and stroke, in addition to the more easily appreciated effects on respiratory disease.

Exposure to PM2.5*, the leading environmental risk factor for death, accounting for about 4.2 million deaths, ranks 5th worldwide among all risks, including smoking, diet, and high blood pressure.

Steep rise in PM2.5 in India for more than two decades

Trends in numbers of deaths attributable to PM2.5 exposure in the most populous countries for all ages and sexes.

Pertinent findings of this report are-

  • Household air pollution ranks 10th among risk factors for mortality, contributing to approximately 2.85 million deaths in 2015 from cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, lower respiratory infections and lung cancer.
  • The number of deaths attributable to ozone is smaller than that for PM2.5, ozone-attributable mortality has increased proportionally more — up nearly 60% globally since 1990. Over the last 25 years, India experienced a nearly 150% increase in ozone-attributable deaths
  • India and Bangladesh experienced some of the largest increases in PM2.5-attributable mortality, on the order of 50% to 60%. India now approaches China in the number of deaths attributable to PM2.5.
  • PM2.5 disproportionately affects very old and very young people

Considering this alarming situation, the importance of air purifier and its use certainly becomes inevitable for any Indian household. Just as we emphasize on eating hygienic food and drinking pure water, it is imperative to ensure the quality of the air we inhale today. An air purifier can help us to get rid of aerial particulate matter and harmful chemicals entering our respiratory tract and minimize the risk of air-borne disorders and lung cancer.

Mi Air Purifier 2 comes with a triple filter assembly which consists of of a primary filter, high-density EPA filter and activated carbon filter. It uses an ultra-dense Toray EPA filter to trap PM2.5, PM0.3, pollen and other respirable particles, allowing only clean air to pass through.

Mi Air Purifier 2 is a smart air purifier and it connects to your mobile device via Mi Home app (Android and iOS). It intelligently monitors indoor air quality and allows you to set timer schedules to learn your wake up and sleep patterns, and schedule a power off when you leave home. That's not all, built-in temperature and humidity sensors also give you more information about your environment. If you want to know more about Mi Air Purifier 2, please visit this link
