With my new role as a mother, my mindset has changed. I can no longer adopt the heck care mentality I had previously about my health.
Honestly, all I do is worry. Like what my gynae had told me previously: "As a parent, you'll never stop worrying."
And it's so true. I worry whenever the weather is bad. Previously when I was pregnant and there was the haze last year, I was so worried on how it'll affect my pregnancy!
I worry whenever there is a health scare. Zika, HFMD, Flu etc. I avoid people and places when I hear of such a scare. Not everybody practices good hygiene nor do they stay home when they are sick. As much as possible, I try not to expose Aidan (or myself, since I'm breastfeeding) to such situations.
Did you know that air pollution is the deadliest form of pollution? It has caused more than 7 million premature deaths each year according to WHO. Air pollution has also been linked to acute and chronic respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases and cancer, as well as impairing lung and brain development of children!
Some people may say that I'm being kiasee or paranoid or over-protective. But why would you wanna expose yourself or your kids at such a young age! It's important to protect yourself and combat the harmful effects of air pollution, haze etc. Especially for people traveling to places with bad air quality, vehicular pollution and even industrial pollution, it's a must to protect yourself. I remember traveling to Beijing once and the air quality was quite bad. I came back sick and coughing badly.
I was so glad to have received RespoKare's Anti-Pollution Face Mask which is the ONLY Anti-pollution mask that traps filter over 98.5% of PM2.5 particulate matter and neutralizes toxic gases!
This is possible due to the Active Respo Layer that neutralizes >90% toxic gases such as NO2 and SO2 and the Filtration Layers that filter > 98.5% of PM2.5 particulates as compared to other conventional face masks that do not protect you from NO2 and SO2.
I like that the mask comes with a smart Pollution Indicator that indicates the level of exposure to Air-pollution and serves as a guide to indicate the end of usable life by changing colour!
Protection and prevention is definitely better than cure, especially when it comes to children. The mask comes in 3 different sizes with an attractively designed kids masks that offers superior protection.
Aidan is a bit too young for his mask now but I can't wait to get the kids one for him when he grows older!
Protect yourself and your family from escalating air pollution. It's better to be prepared in case of any severe situations.
