( — September 29, 2015) Sydney, NEW SOUTH WALES — According to the World Health Organization (WHO) both indoor and outdoor air pollution killed an estimated 7 million people worldwide in 2012. Over half of these deaths were caused by indoor air pollution, from things like smoke from stoves. Most of these 7 million deaths involved lung diseases, heart disease and strokes.

Global Air Pollution

While many associate air pollution with countries like China and India, Western countries like America, England and Portugal have alarmingly high rates of deaths from air pollution. In 2010 there were almost 55,000 deaths in the U.S. from smog and soot. The majority of these deaths are caused by air pollution from power plants and pollution from agriculture.

Now, a drug-free lung exercise device is helping to combat the deadly effects of both indoor and outdoor air pollution. The Breathe & GO lung exerciser is a hand held medical device that helps clear the lungs of mucus.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), even low amounts of air pollution cause negative health effects for not only those with respiratory problems but for healthy adults and children. As few as six to seven hours of normal exposure to ground-level air pollution reduces lung function, causing inflammation of the lungs as well as a build-up of mucus, chest pain, shortness of breath, coughing and nausea.

Studies indicate that this type of typical exposure to air pollution over several months leads to permanent damage to lungs, permanently reducing lung function and capacity.

A build-up of mucus in the lungs leads to lung infection and various respiratory problems.

Considering everyone is in some way affected by air pollution every day, keeping lungs expanded and free from mucus build-up is vitally important for overall health and wellbeing.

Breathe & GO Lung Exerciser

This is where the Breathe & GO lung exerciser can help. A small hand-held device, the Breathe & GO lung device uses Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) to help loosen mucus build-up. When you exhale through the device, a steel ball rattles against a valve to gently vibrate the lungs, helping to dislodge mucus, enabling you to cough up excess fluid. An increase in pressure is also created as you breathe in and then out through the device.

Damage to the lungs from air pollution can cause permanent and irreversible lung diseases like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), emphysema, asthma and even lung disease. For this reason, the Breathe & GO lung exerciser is quickly gaining in popularity. It is an inexpensive, simple and effective way to help keep lung function and capacity at its optimum.

Able to be used by people of any age, the Breathe & GO lung device is helping people who suffer from various respiratory conditions to improve their breathing. If you would like further information about the Breathe & GO lung exerciser, visit Breathe & GO today.
