According to reports from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 90% of our time is generally spent indoors. The US EPA also found the air inside your home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.
The Australian CSIRO found that indoor air pollution can contribute to headaches, asthma, sore throats, eye irritation, lung cancer, nausea and a general feeling of discomfort.
