Introducing LG PuriCare That Helps You Breathe Easier At Home And On The Go

We spent approximately 90% of our time indoor. Indoor quality plays such an important role for our health since allergies, asthma, lung cancer and heart problems have all been linked to poor air quality. The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers.

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the area. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants. According to the NAFA (National Air Filtration Association) 95-98% of indoor air is made up of particles smaller than one micron. Bacteria, smoke, viruses, and lung damaging dust all fit into this category.    The filter you have in your home is designed to protect your heating and cooling system between its annual check-up and cleanings. It is NOT designed to protect you and your family. These filters don’t even keep your system clean much less filter out the other contaminants in your air. Trying to catch airborne particles that are harmful to humans with a standard filter is like using a tennis racket to kill mosquitoes. You may get a few bugs, but it’s pure luck when you do.   So having an extra air filters is one of the ways to enhance indoor air quality. There are 3 criteria to choose a good quality air filter:

1.  Looking for True HEPA labels.

2. Pay attention to the description such as “captures up to 99.975% of airborne particles measuring 0.3 micrometers (μm) in diameter that pass through the filter”

3. Design is important–looking for a modern, minimalism design which will either blend in your interiors or at least will not stand out and pleasant to look at.

Our Product Recommendation For Air Filtering–LG 2021 PURICARE AIR CARE LINE

2021 LG PuriCare™ room and portable air purifiers as well as dehumidifiers are designed to help users breathe easier at home and on the go.

Clear the Air with 360° Care

LG room air purifiers help users take control of the air they breathe at home. The LG PuriCare 360° (model AS560DWR0; $1,299) is perfect for purifying 512-square-feet of space while the smaller size LG PuriCare 360° Single (model AS330DWR0; $699), is ideal for 310-square-foot spaces. Both models feature a unique purification method that promotes 360 degrees of clean air delivery, including areas low to the floor. For more even air distribution, the LG Clean Booster head rotates up to 70 degrees while operating at whisper-quiet sound levels (as low as 25dB). Launching this spring is a new entry-level model to the PuriCare 360° air purifier family (model AS330DWQ0) – perfect for smaller spaces.

The entire LG PuriCare 360° line uses a unique multi-filter system which captures six different types of particles to deliver purer, cleaner air. The True HEPA filtration system traps 99.97 percent of particles as small as 0.3 microns1 and the deodorization filter removes odors like food, smoke, smog and harmful airborne chemicals. The LG PuriCare 360° (model AS560DWR0; $1,299) is CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® along with LG laundry and vacuum products, having undergone rigorous scientific testing by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

With its intelligent 4.3-inch LCD touch display, LG PuriCare 360° helps users intuitively monitor air quality at a glance. The LED indicator changes from red to orange to yellow to green as air quality improves, and the Auto Mode setting adjusts for optimal air quality without the hassle of manually changing settings. LG PuriCare 360° models for 2021 are ENERGY STAR® certified, meaning they are almost 27 percent more energy efficient than standard air purifiers, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Air Care on the Go with PuriCare Mini

LG PuriCare Mini (models AP151MWA1; AP151MBA1 – $199) delivers personal air purification for small spaces and on the go. From the nightstand or home office to the car or hotel room, the compact portable purifier is designed to remove up to 99 percent of ultra-fine dust and reduces allergens and irritants that can be harmful to breathe.2 PuriCare Mini is powerful enough to deliver up to eight hours of cleaner, quiet airflow and compact enough to take anywhere with a streamlined design that is as light as a water bottle at just 1.2 pounds. 3

Certain Sofas May Pose Mortal Dangers. Here’s Why

An Environment International study found that some older couches may be emitting a potentially carcinogenic dust.

For homeowners who also happen to be pet lovers, few things are more frustrating than the constant war between a sofa’s well-kept appearance and the furry friends who shed on it. But as it turns out, we may have more to fear from what our couches themselves are emitting—especially for fans of ’70s vintage design.
That revelation comes courtesy of newly published research in Environment International, which analyzed in-home dust samples to determine that sofas made between 1975 and at least 2013 have a tendency to disperse what can amount to carcinogenic dust. The culprit? Flame retardant (or “F.R.”) chemicals, which the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says may cause cancer in addition to posing other adverse health effects. In a handful of the dust samples collected across more than 20 households available for all four measurement periods of the study, multiple flame retardants were found in concentrations greater than 1,000 parts per million.

4 Tips on How to Stock Up Food in a Healthy Way

Everyone is probably busy with stocking up food and  grocery essentials. Just a curtsy reminder that when you stock up these supplies, please consider other people need to stock up theirs too. So be kind and thoughtful  specially at this crisis moment.

Just share some tips how we stock up our food.

1. Choose something healthy.   Those nutrients-dense food will provide us necessary vitamins, minerals, etc and help us enhance your immune system

We love millet and it is one of the healthiest staples to replace wheat or grains since it is gluten-free and grain-free. A cup of cooked millet contains about 207 calories with over 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of dietary fiber, and less than 2 grams of fat. It is rich in minerals like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and selenium as well as essential vitamins like folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and Vitamins B6, C, E, and K.

2.  Have plenty fresh greens and vegetables.

We always get plenty of cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables  are vegetables of the family Brassicaceae (also called Cruciferae) with many genera, species, and cultivars being raised for food production such as cauliflower, cabbage, kale, garden cress, bok choy.  

Most cruciferous veggies are rich in vitamins and minerals such as folate and vitamin K. Dark green cruciferous veggies also are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. They’re also rich in phytonutrients — plant-based compounds that may help to lower inflammation and reduce the risk of developing cancer.  Click here to learn more about cruciferous veggies’ benefits and recipe.

3. Make sure you have enough   Omega-3 fatty acid intakes.  Omega-3 (n-3) essential fatty acids are extremely healthy, and they should be an important part of your everyday diet.

Unlike other fatty acids, omega-3s are essential fatty acids, meaning that your body does not produce them on its own. You need to get them from your diet. This should be a priority because omega-3s can. Click here to read more

Canned sardine, canned wild-caught tuna and salmon are all great sources for your omega-3 fatty acids.  Based on several researches, canned sardine and tuna still keep all of the nutrients pretty well. And we often purchase canned fish with Safe Catch label( see the label in the above photo). Safe Catch tests every fish for mercury. Sustainably wild caught. Cooked to retain all nutrients and flavor.
