{ else }   Blog: An Introduction to Air Purifiers  
Air purifiers have been around in various forms since the 1940s, when the first HEPA filter was designed to protect workers from airborne nuclear material. Since then, air purifiers have been used in hospitals, work sites, and homes to protect against viruses, mold, bacteria, pollen, pet dander, tobacco smoke, dust mites, and a great number of industrial and household chemicals. The people who stand the most to gain from air purifiers are those with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments.

But everybody can benefit from having cleaner air in the home. The Environmental Protection Agency lists indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. In fact, the inside of your home could well contain two to one hundred times more air pollutants than an outdoor urban environment.

Air purifier value varies widely. You can spend upwards of $1600 for the best air purifiers known to man, or you can spend as little as $70 for a good car unit. You can also spend an arm and a leg on junk if you’re not careful. One thing to keep in mind when buying an air purifier is unit-to-filter value. If your unit uses a HEPA filter, find out how much it costs to replace the filter. You may end up spending thousands on the filter alone. The question is, what kind of a machine do you want?

Home air purifiers use a number of technological approaches to cleaning your air so you can breathe more easily. They use HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters; electrostatic filters, ion generators, ozone generators, ultraviolet light, and other methods to get rid of both large and miniscule particles. Some operate by drawing in air via a fan, cleaning the air, and re-releasing it. Others work by actually sending out “purifying agents” throughout the room.

Today you have two basic choices for home air purifiers: room air purifiers, and whole house purifiers. Generally speaking, room purifiers are better for air-cleaning efficiency and cost.

Air Purifiers provides detailed information on Air Purifiers, Home Air Purifiers, Ionic Air Purifiers, Ozone Air Purifiers and more. Air Purifiers is affliated with Electronic Air Cleaners.

Blog: Easy and Effective - Natural Acne Treatment  
The skin is the largest organ of the body, eliminating waste and capable of absorbing what we put on it. When affected by acne, many people seek natural acne treatment to eliminate the problem and not face some of the undesirable side effects of some medication. Diet also plays a vital role in the removal of acne. Foods that cleanse the system or do not place stress on it can help in eliminating acne.

The liver plays the important role of eliminating wastes from the body, and this sometimes includes hormones that cause an increase in oil secretion from the sebaceous glands. There are many foods that aid the liver in this cleansing process, and so a change in diet should be considered a natural acne treatment. The change can include foods that are known to detoxify the body.
