Air is Life!

We all know we need air to survive. We humans can survive up to 5 weeks without eating, as many as 5 days without drinking… but only 5 minutes without breathing. To survive we breathe a lot, even when resting we inhale around 11,000 – 13,000 litres of air per day. Yet following the world news we see that most people live in industrial, highly-populated cities where the air is so polluted it makes us sick. Just 10 years ago the World Health Organization (WHO) predicted that air pollution causes more than 500.000 premature deaths a year. Not much happened, the air we breath did not got better. Already 2014 the WHO speaks about 7 million premature death.
