With many of Beijing’s residential building being heated solely by fossil fuels, namely coal, the airborne particulate count – which is already high all year round – goes through the roof (no pun intended) during the winter time. Pollution plays a great part in detracting from respiratory health for many Beijing residents during the colder months and the sight of people walking the streets or sat on the subway wearing surgical style masks is very common. Although these masks as a barrier aiding the reduction of transmission of viruses and germs, unknown to many they do very little to stop people breathing in the microscopic nasties that are floating in the air and very harmful to the health. Available online and also at the World Health Store in CBD are Respro masks which are designed specifically for athletes and city commuters; they filter out much of the unwanted pollutants. For those not wishing to go about their household chores wearing mask reminiscent of Darth Vader (as beautiful as they are) there are also air purification options such as the IQAir which is a great option for filtering the air in your home making it a healthier environment.
