Is your drinking water safe from microplastic?

Water, the driving force of all nature, is getting contaminated by the day. The role of water purification was to remove bacteria and viruses from drinking water. But over the years, water contamination from various sources, like sewage, chemical waste, heavy metals, etc has made the water unfit for consumption. In certain areas, the water is polluted by Lead and arsenic making it toxic to health. What’s worse, new age contaminants like Lead, Iron or Arsenic cannot be removed from the water by boiling. Hence’ the need for advanced water purifiers which are equipped with purification technologies like Reverse Osmosis (RO) or UV for water purification needs.

Recently, a survey found the presence of microplastic in the tap water of countries across the world. What’s alarming is that India has ranked third in the list of contamination rate.

Let’s help you understand the problem of microplastics and its impact on health, and possible solutions for the same.

What is Microplastic?

Microplastics are small plastic particles present in the environment. They are present in many sources, including carry bags and pet bottles. While there is some contention over their size, the US National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration distinguishes them as less than 5mm (5000 micron) in diameter. Based on GESAMP 2015, there are four types of plastic found in the environment. They are:

  1. Macroplastics
  2. Mesoplastics
  3. Microplastics
  4. Nanoplastics

They are present in different parts of the environment in different sizes, which may or may not be seen with the naked eye.

How does microplastic find its way to drinking water?

We are aware of the fact that the global environment is highly affected due to the presence of plastic in the ecosystem. Everyday, millions of plastic fibres are shed through different sources. As 60% of our fabrics are made of polyester, a type of plastic that is obtained from fossil fuel, simple activities like abrasion of clothes, upholstery, carpets or any other fibrous fabrics add to the junk of microplastics in the environment. Apart from this, another type of plastic called as Styrene Butadiene is released from the tyres of the vehicles. This plastic finds its way into sewers and other water bodies. A recent study also found that every cycle of a washing machine releases 700,000 fibres into the environment. All of this results in an unfortunate meeting of the sources of water bodies and microplastic fibres. They make their way through the complex pipe system and into our homes through taps or drinking water.

How does microplastic affect the human body?

Due to its small size, it is capable of travelling through intestinal walls, lymph nodes and other vital organs. They also absorb toxic chemicals that are linked to fatal diseases such as cancer. Due to its large presence in the ocean, researchers also suspect that people consume these microplastic particles through seafood. If these particles are inhaled or ingested, they may cause localised toxicity in your body.

What is the solution?

The primary solution for this world-wide issue is to take an active role in proper waste management. That being said, it is also true that this process is a long battle that will definitely require a lot of years. However, you can take the first step to ensure your drinking water is free from microplastics at home. You can start by making a conscious decision to avoid the purchase of plastic bottles, carry bags, and straws.

How can you eliminate microplastics from your drinking water?

One of the ways to eliminate the presence of microplastic fibres from your drinking water is by investing in a water purifier that is equipped with an advanced purification technology. An average microplastic size ranges from 0.1 cm to 1 μm and advanced technologies like pre-filter porosity, Ultra-Filter membranes and RO membranes can readily filter out these microns and provide you with healthy and safe drinking water. Dr. Aquaguard water purifiers are equipped with Microfiltration, Ultra Filtration & Reverse Osmosis purification technology that is capable of filtering microplastic that range from 0.1 cm (1000 μm) to 1 μm.

The presence of plastic is a global concern and, in the years to come, we hope that solutions can be found to combat it. However, you can take the first step towards safeguarding you and your family from the adverse effects of microplastics by bringing home an advanced water purifier. Dr. Aquaguard Magna HD RO + UV eliminates excess TDS, blocks dissolved impurities and chemical contaminants, while retaining essential minerals in the drinking water, giving you healthy and pure drinking water.

How to make your home allergen-free during winters

Winter is a time that makes you want to stay tucked in and warm in the comfort of your home. However, shutting your windows against the cold can bring along its own set of problems. If you feel like your nose is stuffy and it’s difficult to breathe, your headaches, and your eyes are itchy, you may be a victim of winter allergies. The lack of ventilation makes it difficult for fresh air to enter your home and, thus, stale air and allergens continue to circulate indoors.

What happens during the winter?

There are allergens in the air indoors, which include fine dust, smoke or cooking fumes, dust mites, mould, VOC’s, perfumes, aerosol sprays and animal dander. And it’s during the winter months that we spend most of our time with them while cooped up indoors. Hence allergies caused by these are on the rise when the weather gets cooler.

Children, the elderly, and people suffering from asthma and other respiratory disorders are more vulnerable to these indoor allergens. While the immune system of children is in its developing stage, that of asthma patients and the elderly are weak. Thus, the effects of indoor allergens are heightened for them.

How winter allergies affect people

Symptoms like cold, sneezing, irritated throat, itchy eyes, etc. may be caused due to allergens. Some people react to mould and dust mites, in the same way, they would to pathogens. The antibody response is what causes symptoms like wheezing, watery eyes, coughing or sneezing. If the congestion is bad enough, it may also cause headaches and sinus pressure.

When you know it’s an allergy and not a cold

It is hard to tell whether the sniffles you’re bearing with are an allergy to dust or if it’s cold. Sometimes, it may be easy to distinguish between a viral infection and an allergy on the basis of body ache and fever, which may accompany a cold. An allergic reaction may cause you to experience itchy eyes, sniffles, sore throat and even rashes. Of course, it is recommended that you consult your doctor for an accurate diagnosis and get treatment for relief.

What to do about indoor allergens?

But prevention is better than cure, isn’t it? While braving the cold to grab some fresh air may not be a very tempting option, there are some ways in which you can fight allergens and curb indoor air pollution.

  • Vacuum your home frequently: Dust mites are microscopic creatures which are not visible to the naked eye and live in carpets, upholstered furniture bedding and warm spaces. Frequent vacuum cleaning of your home is the best way to eliminate them. Bring home Euroclean vacuum cleaners that deep cleans and eliminates these allergens thoroughly and easily. One of the primary features of Euroclean range is that it offers powerful suction that removes embedded dust. They come with a wide range of accessories that are ideal for varied cleaning requirements.
  • Keep your pets clean and in check: Pets carry a truckload of allergy-triggering proteins in their fur, dander, saliva and urine. Keeping them off your furniture and giving them a bath on a weekly basis are two ways to help limit your exposure to allergens.
  • Keep moisture to a minimum: Fungi & Mould thrive in damp places like your bathroom, kitchen and basement. Hence, reducing moisture indoors is key to inhibiting mould growth. Keeping surfaces dry with regular wipe downs, throwing away spoiled food from your refrigerator and turning on the exhaust fan while cooking are some of the ways by which you can control mould growth.
  • Get an air purifier: One of the most effective ways to get rid of allergens in your indoor air is by bringing home an air purifier. The Dr. Aeroguard SCPR 300 – Air Purifier is certified for the highest standards of air quality by gui-Lab Germany.

Things You Should Know Before Buying an Air Purifier

‘Air pollution is turning Mother nature prematurely gray’. – Irv Kupcinet

As the entire country celebrated the beginning of a New Year, Delhi, yet again, had a major environmental setback.

A healthy beginning to a healthy year

‘Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life’.

We are at the end of 2017. Another fruitful year has passed by. With a bagful of memories, we are all set to welcome 2018 with open arms and optimism.

As a common practice, people are ready with their list of ambitious resolutions.

Some promise to learn a musical instrument in a month, some plan on quitting smoking or alcohol, while others choose to take up a hobby. These resolutions sound fantastic on paper but fulfilling them with diligence and sincerity is something that Only a few achieve. In addition to this, people are drawn towards making bigger and better resolutions, ignoring the small and simple ones.

Joyce Meyer once rightly claimed, ‘I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you’. So, this New Year, how about you add a few simple healthy resolutions to your list, and let the healthier you enjoy 2018 with good health!

  1. Water is your best friend; drink it

Drink adequate amount of water—this is a fact that has been established by many experts and health specialists. Stay constantly hydrated to maintain essential bodily functions and feel fresh. Ensure that you have a water bottle with you at all times, and consciously remind yourself to drink water at regular intervals. Slice fresh pieces of cucumber, oranges or lemons to add some flavour and nutrition to your water. Bring home Dr Aquaguard Water Purifiers and ensure that you and your family are drinking only healthy water.

  1. Life is too short to stress out

As you enter the New Year, make sure that your stressful days reduce in number. No matter how eventful your day was, if it is combined with stress, it takes a huge toll on your health. Chronic stress can result in insomnia, depression, obesity, heart disease, etc. To avoid this, start small sessions of meditation, spend some quality time with your friends and family & participate in relaxing activities (vacation, spa, etc.)

  1. Reboot your fitness regime

Losing weight is one of the most common resolutions! Regular workouts and gyming sessions are planned out well to achieve your magical number. However, as the excitement of the New Year fades away so does the enthusiasm of going to the gym. Hence, to combat this problem, set smaller goals for yourself. Chart out a jogging or an evening walk schedule that can be achieved with minimal efforts. Starting with this gives you a great head start to move on to physically exhausting exercises.

  1. Breathe in healthy air, breathe out worries

The alarming headlines, thick smog in the air and the sudden drop in air quality has left many people worried. Greenpeace’s report named Airpocalypse says, ‘As many as 1.2 billion deaths take place every year due to air pollution’. It’s high time we take a few steps towards analysing the quality of the air we breathe in and ensure that it’s healthy. This coming year, ensure the air you and your family breathe indoors is purified through Dr Aeroguard Air Purifiers. You can also bring home a few air purifying plants to circulate fresh air in your home.

  1. A tidy house leads to a tidy mind

Stressful schedules and endless errands lead to a cluttered home. A cluttered home can result in dust mites breeding in your bed and sofa & accumulated dirt in hard-to-reach surfaces. How about stepping into a new year with a de-cluttered and tidy home? Begin the new chapter of your year with a spotless and healthy home. Invest in the Euroclean range of vacuum cleaners that help to deep clean your home and make it a healthy living space.

A new year is a fresh start to a new life. So, a few simple steps towards a healthier life will definitely help you and your loved ones have a happy and healthy year ahead.

Ways to Stay Healthy During Winter

Prepared or not, winter is finally upon us and with it the exciting yet busy festive season. While juggling between work, shopping and events like family dinners and parties, it’s easy to put health on the backburner. Add to this the chilly weather, the increasing incidents of smog blankets, and the generally poor quality of air in cities around the country, and you’ve got yourself plenty of reasons to fall ill.

However, with the right precautionary measures, you can evade the cold, flu, and several other allergies and illnesses that threaten to dampen your holiday spirit. Here’s how you do it:

  • Stay hydrated

Most of us forget to drink water at regular intervals during the day, this worsens during the winter as we don’t feel thirsty as much. While the summer heat reminds us of how thirsty we are, the sly winter cold doesn’t.

While it’s important to drink a lot of water during this period, it’s crucial that you ensure the water you’re drinking is free of contaminants that include synthetic organic compounds, sewage particles, chemical waste, and several others. You can ensure that the water you drink is free of these harmful pollutants with Dr.Aquaguard.

  • Eat healthy and Exercise

It’s that time of the year when your bowl of veggies is replaced by Christmas cake and candy, and that daily jog is scrapped to accommodate a few extra minutes under the blanket in this cosy climate. This weather has most of us buried under blankets snacking on junk food, which leads to all those extra pounds.

And while it’s ok to indulge a little, make sure you compensate for your lapse in healthy living with the right diet and exercise. Cook with mushrooms and spices such as garlic, ginger and cilantro as they have immune-boosting health benefits. Eat fibre- and omega 3-rich items like apples, oats, fish and nuts.

As for the exercise bit, plan your exercise in advance. Write your weekly exercise routine on Sunday, and try to stick to it. If you’re too lazy to visit the gym, workout at home.

  • Keep home clean and free of dust mites

Dust mites, mould and pet dander are the primary causes of allergies. Your mattress is their refuge and your occupancy is their means of receiving the humidity they need to sustain themselves through this dry weather. Mites require just an hour and a half of moist air to survive and three hours to reproduce.

You can counter this with a weekly, hot water wash of your bedsheets and blankets accompanied by a regular sweep from a Euroclean vacuum.

  • Maintain healthy indoor air

We’re all aware of the recent smog clouds that have been descending over our towns and cities. While we can do little to effect a change in these environmental hazards, we have complete control over the air in our homes.

Most of the time, the windows and doors of your home are going to be shut against the harsh winter winds. However, outdoor germs somehow make their way in and are circulated and re-circulated around the house. This process can be put to an end by simply implementing a few indoor air purifying methods. Getting a proper air purifier, like Dr.Aeroguard, always helps. Air purifiers keep your indoor air fresh and clean. You may also consider getting houseplants, activated charcoal and salt lamps, which are highly effective natural air purifiers.

  • Schedule an early bedtime  

We all know how winter makes the days shorter and nights longer. Our body responds to this too, adjusting its rhythm accordingly. You may use the long evening to ease yourself into a relaxed disposition before going to bed. You can also try purifying the air in your bedroom with an air purifier like Dr.Aeroguard. This will ensure you sleep soundly and feel rested & fresh the next morning.

You’ve been good and stayed healthy all year, why drop the ball now? With these five easy-to-do tips, you can keep your good health all through the chilly winter months while still having a good time.

Eliminate Lead – The silent killer in your drinking water

Water is life and clean water means health.

The world is moving at a fast pace, developing countries all around the globe are trying to match up to this pace by all means necessary. Every new innovation is refining our livelihood with each passing day. However, amidst all the developments and technological advancements, basic necessities like sanitation, hygiene, and clean drinking water are still a grave issue in many countries.

As per a study by UNICEF India, 67% of Indian households do not treat their drinking water, even though it could be chemically or bacterially contaminated. Amongst all the contaminants, Lead is one of the most prominent and hazardous pollutants in drinking water.

Lead, a pervasive environmental contaminant, enters your drinking water due to the corrosion of household plumbing system like pipes, solders, and fittings that contain Lead. PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes that are most commonly used in your home also contain Lead components that may leach into the drinking water. World Health Organisation (WHO) has identified Lead as one of the ten major chemicals of public health concern.

Here are some basic facts on Lead and its harmful effects that you need to know of:

  1. Lead is a cumulative toxicant that can affect multiple body systems in the human body. It can cause damage to the brain, kidney, liver and bones.
  2. Children are even more vulnerable to complications caused by Lead exposure. Lead can cause lasting problems with growth and development in children. It can affect their hearing, learning ability, behaviour and even slow down the child’s growth.
  3. In adults, Lead poisoning can damage the brain and nervous system, the stomach and even the kidneys. It can also cause high blood pressure and other health problems.
  4. Children and adults alike can experience memory loss, trouble thinking clearly, weakness and muscle problems.

The effects of Lead on the human body can be life-threatening. But you can begin to take following precautionary measures to safeguard you and your loved ones from its harmful effects.The effects of Lead on the human body can be life-threatening. But you can begin to take following precautionary measures to safeguard you and your loved ones from its harmful effects.

  1. Old pipelines and plumbing systems in our homes and buildings can cause Lead contamination in your drinking water. Hence cleaning your taps and faucets frequently is suggested.
  2. Before directly consuming, let some water run thoroughly so that any contaminants accumulated in pipes will flush out.
  3. Do consider using an advanced water purifier with reverse osmosis technology that will help you filter your water thoroughly. Traditional purification techniques cannot remove chemicals and new age contaminants from water. Hence, the need for RO purifying technology. RO technology effectively removes excess TDS (Total Dissolved Salts), new age contaminants, etc. from your drinking water and makes it safe for drinking.

No matter how forward the world is, if the most basic commodity that you are consuming is contaminated then the world will have no good future. Considering all the health hazards caused by Lead, getting rid of it from drinking water is the need of this hour. Hence, take all the precautionary measures to eliminate Lead from your water.

A secure home is a happy home!

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family; whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” – Jane Howard

Your family and loved ones are the foundation of your inner strength. They are the supporting pillar of your life and their safety is always your utmost priority. However, there are times when you cannot be physically present to take care of them. At such times, there is always a sense of fear for their security and well-being.

You may think that this fear is quite irrational, but the bold headlines, flashing news alerts and rising number of crime rates in India not only question your level of home security but also nudges you to strengthen it. Over the last decade, the crimes related to burglary, domestic thefts, etc has seen a sudden rise. Based on a study done by OSAC (Bureau of Diplomat Security) residential threat is a common security threat in India. Sometimes, it may also result in violence, injury or deaths in some rare cases.

While the officials and the government are doing their bit to reduce the numbers and enhance security in the country, you too need to take a step towards safeguarding your home. This is where a full-proof security system for your home comes into the picture. The common protection system for an Indian society is a security guard and a CCTV camera. You need to go one step ahead and take preventive measures to keep your home safe.

Here are some essential measures you can take that will safeguard your home and your loved ones.

  1. Double-check your frames

Ensure that there are not opening or blind spots in your window or door frames that can give easy access to a potential threat.

  1. Avoid French windows or sliding doors.

If your apartment is on a lower floor, sliding doors and windows are an open invitation to thieves and burglars. As they are easy to break and invade your home, it is highly advisable to not go for such doors and windows.

In addition to the above-mentioned measures, you need to make sure that you give your home an infallible security system that lets you live stress-free when you are outdoors.

A complete security system consists of video door phones, alarm systems, CCTV surveillance, access control systems, etc. These mechanisms help you and your loved ones to feel secure and live a stress-free life. In case of any suspicious activity or attempt to unauthorised entry into your home, you can alert the police. Similarly, there are fire alarm systems which can raise an alarm and prevent extensive damage or loss of life, in the event of a fire.

The young minds of India deserve to breathe in healthy air!

“Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.” – Nelson Mandela

Children are the ones who have the ability to transform the society with their free will, imagination, creativity, and unique thought process. They are our most valuable resources and it is our responsibility to nurture, protect, and educate them.

On one side, the world is inventing brilliant technology to shape these minds, while the other side is failing to keep the environment healthy for them. On the basis of a report, 92% of the world population lives in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits. Talking about a similar issue, Delhi reports around 30,000 deaths annually due to air pollution, making it the fifth leading cause of deaths in India.

The air quality in Delhi has hit an emergency level of PM 2.5 at 397 mg/cubic metre which is six times higher than the ‘safe to breathe’ limits. The nation’s capital is deluged in fatal smog that has resulted in many accidents and life-threatening diseases.

Studies have shown that children are at highest risk of facing multiple hazards due to this condition. Their vulnerability to respiratory diseases is primarily because of the following reasons:

  1. High exposure to air pollution due to extended time spent outdoors.
  2. They have fragile lungs which are still developing.
  3. They inhale more pollutants per kilogram of body weight than adults.
  4. As respiratory tracts are narrower in children, irritation may result in proportionately greater airway obstruction.

In order to combat this tough situation and safeguard children from any type of allergies and respiratory concerns, parents can take the following measures:

  1. Reduce stepping outdoors

If you see an increased level of pollution outside your home, avoid stepping outside unless it is absolutely necessary.

  1. Invest in an air pollution mask

In case you or your loved ones wish to step outside, do wear an anti-pollution mask to avoid inhaling harmful pollutants.

  1. Increase ventilation

With a proper ventilation system in your home, the indoor air pollution can be minimized to a greater extent. Use an exhaust fan while cooking to suck all the cooking fumes outside your home. You can also go for trickle vents to circulate air in your home and help in reducing the chances of indoor air pollution.

  1. Bring home houseplants

It is believed that houseplants can purify and rejuvenate air in your homes. A few of the preferred plants that can help in cleansing the air inside your home are Peace Lily, Lady Palm, Bamboo Palm, Spider Plant, etc.

  1. Deep clean your home

Ensure your home is thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. The absence of dust mites, dirt and allergens will keep the air inside your home purified.

  1. Invest in an air purifier

Bring home an air purifier that will purify your indoor making it free from pollutants, contaminants, and smoke.

As breathing gets tough for adults, it gets tougher for the young ones. The future of our country is in danger and we need to do something to take care of it. So this children’s day, let’s take a step towards safeguarding children’s health by taking all the precautionary measures. You can start by bringing home Dr Aeroguard SCPR 300 and ensure that your little ones breathe in purified air.
