What is Air Pollution? How does it affects our health?

Salam walakum wa RahamatuAllahi wa barkatoh,
Good morning, evening, afternoon.
How are you all? How is your health? (comment below)

Today I would like to talk about the subject of air and why it’s important.. I think we all know that it is important but how does it affect our health? With all the talk of climate change, there is not a lot of talk about how it affects us directly.

This topic is very close to me because I am an American living in Egypt. where I live in Egypt has been very detrimental to our health. We are near an oil refinery, also when we moved here. We later found out that someone was using a house space to break down iron (so an iron factory). They burn garbage and chemicals. There is no, oh no there is a battery better not burn that. We also live near a major highway and I am pretty sure there is illegal cooking stuff going on, Though we are trying to move. Like many people, they may not have the money. Or know where to go. This is our situation. As this is not my country I am trying hard to not just move in the same situation again. with that said this is not a great situation… I am hoping can bring some awareness and think to other people.
For us, we feel always inflamed and have headaches and at our worse, we are unable to do anything. immobile, sleepy, and I can only imagine what this may do to our long-term health…

What is the Solution to Air Pollution?

1st. If your able to .. the best thing to do . is to do as much research as possible and move. The closer you are to uncontaminated air and further you are away from it.. It gives your body time to detox, heal and be stable in health

not everyone is able to do that

#4 exercise! I can not say enough .

#5 stretching :

This is just the tip of the ice burg, we have to remember is that the one that created us. Created us in a way that we can heal. For example, if you break your leg your body can heal that break. which is just amazing! Never-ending research … to be able to share and implement to help you and our families to the best we can be. I hope that this blog was beneficial. again any questions regarding the post. Or would like a topic to be talked about don’t hesitate to contact me. Let’s talk it out.
