Indoor Plants: THE OXYGEN BOMBS

Indoor air pollution in urban areas is quite common and is due to the increase use of chemicals and synthetic materials. in this blog, i have emphasized about the oxygen bombs i.e., plants which can purify indoor air. 
The Top Ten Sources of Indoor Air Pollution in the Home

  1. Radon
  2. Environmental Tobacco Smoke
  3. Biological Sources
  4. Carbon Monoxide
  5. Nitrogen Dioxide
  6. Organic Gases
  7. Formaldehyde
  8. Pesticides

Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. So to purify the indoor air, Scientists at NASA conducted a research using plants, which stated,“Houseplants” can purify and rejuvenate air within our houses and workplaces, safeguarding us from any side effects associated with prevalent toxins like ammonia, formaldehyde and also benzene.
It’s the best way to counter the impact of pollution indoors, particularly if you have a family member with some respiratory illness. It’s suggested that you have at least one plant per 100 square feet of home for efficient air cleaning to be accomplished.
plants can really spruce up the air quality in your home, they are notoriously adept at absorbing gases through pores on the surface of their leaves. It’s this skill that facilitates photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert light energy and carbon dioxide into chemical energy to fuel growth.
