Have you ever stopped to consider the quality of the air your child is breathing every day in their classroom? It’s a fact that indoor air quality can affect IQ test scores, and cognitive development (even during prenatal exposure) and trigger respiratory illnesses like asthma and allergies. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), nearly 26 million people in the U.S. suffer from asthma. This equates to 1 in 13 people; it’s a leading chronic disease in children. Currently, there are about 4.8 million children under the age of 18 with asthma.
Did you know poor indoor air quality can also affect cognitive function in not just adults, but children and teens? According to IQAir, research reveals that breathing polluted air could impair memory and reasoning, reduce academic performance, and even lower intelligence.
Today, we’re thrilled to bring back Glory Dolphin Hammes, CEO of IQAir North America. We’re picking up from episode #75 where we discussed how air quality affects our sleep. Today, we’re diving deeper into the importance of air quality in schools and how it’s affecting children.
Glory’s inspiration and passion for clean air for all led to the IQAir Foundation, a nonprofit focused on providing clean air for kids with air quality filtration technology and monitoring in schools located in the most polluted communities in the US.
