Prevent unwanted health conditions

You can help prevent yourself from developing unwanted health conditions by ensuring that you breathe in fresh, clean air as much as possible.

Avoid areas or situations where you will be exposed to polluted air. Industrial areas and manufacturing plants or factories are areas where there may be air pollution. If you work for a company where you may be exposed to unpolluted air, ensure that proper health and safety measures are followed.

Ensure that your home is well ventilated. Open windows and doors daily so that fresh air can flow through. Stove and shower extractor fans can be used to reduce odours and humidity in these rooms. Note that humidity can also be an ideal condition in which germs or bacteria flourish.
