Read This & Live Longer
Posted by Craig on Tuesday, May 02, 2006
The May 2006 issue of Esquire magazine contains a special insert: The Body Manual: Read This & Live Longer.

The Body Manual draws attention to pervasive modern pollution, especially particulate matter less than ten microns in diameter (PM-10) that gets lodged deep in your lungs. Your immune system, thinking the pollution is bacteria, sends out cells to attack and kill the invader.

Esquire warns: "Over time, the lining of your lungs builds up scar tissue and can eventually induce nearby lung cells to become cancerous. There's PM-10 in every breath you take, but it concentrates in certain environments: in homes, especially in winter when the windows are closed; in the workplace, where it's often impossible to open the windows at all; and in cars, taxis, and buses, which don't have particularly good filters in their ventilation systems."

Esquire suggests airing out your home and car and investing in a HEPA air purifier.

The Body Manual also suggests using natural cleaners rather than specialized artificial products to avoid chemical fumes.
