Mr. Janiszewski’s education in health sciences has helped him gain experience as a scientific reviewer, Clinical Research Editor and a science blogger. Mr. Janiszewski is currently doing research in the change of the Earth’s atmosphere and how it is affecting the organisms living in it.

As we all know the air around us keeps getting polluted due to industrialization. According to a research by WHO (World Health Organisation) around 8 million people die every year due to air pollution and 91%’s of the air population live in area’s where air quality exceeds WHO Guidelines.

Diseases caused by air pollution include lung diseases and respiratory problems, lung cancer, cardiovascular problems and are a major threat  to pregnant woman and newborns. Delhi, one of the most polluted cities in the world in the world is putting around 300,000 babies at risk of brain damage every year.

Manufacturers have come up with air purifiers to combat this pollution. Air purifiers use a system of internal fans to pull the air in your home through a series of filters that remove harmful airborne particles like dust, pollen and bacteria. The air purifier then circulate the purified air back into the room. This process repeats itself several times an hour, keeping your environment healthy.

Mr. Janiszewski suggest buying an air purifiers for large spaces, while scientist around the globe try finding a method to improve air quality around the Earth. It is not going to be as simple as planting more trees as some of damage caused to this planet is irreversible.
