Worried about air pollution? Otrivin Breathe Clean Range can help
Air pollution affects the general public, and your nose is your first line of defence.1,2
Did you know, your nose filters, warms and humidifies up to 20,000 litres of air that you breathe every day?1
Too much air pollution causes the nose’s cilliary transport to slow down and sometimes stop working entirely.2,3
But the good news is that saline nasal sprays like Otrivin Breathe Clean can help wash away entrapped air pollutants.4,5
To start with, what is air pollution?
Air pollution is a mixture of natural and man-made substances in the air we breathe. For example, outdoor air pollution includes fine particles produced by burning fossil fuels, harmful gasses and tobacco smoke.6
Why should I worry about air pollution?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 9 out of 10 people worldwide breathe polluted air, and breathing polluted air can seriously affect human health.7
Can I check the air pollution in my area?
You can check the air quality index (AQI) which reports on daily air quality. It tells you how clean or polluted your air is and what associated health affects you may experience within a few hours or days after breathing polluted air. You can also check an air-pollution map and find out about different types of air pollution.8
