Smog is the smallest solid particles sprayed into the air. During breathing, they first enter the human respiratory system, and some of the components of smog into the internal organs. It turns out that breathing with smog primarily stimulates the development of diseases of the respiratory system, and secondly, any internal organ. Most likely, the most weakened organ as a result of illness or genetic predisposition will begin to hurt first of all.

From personal protective equipment, you must use a disposable respirator. Change the respirator as it becomes dirty - when it becomes difficult to breathe or a strong odor appears in the inhaled air. It is more convenient to use a respirator with a nose clip - this is such a plate that squeezes the mask in the area of ​​the nose and reduces the ingress of dirty air into the undermask space.

Smog is especially dangerous for children, the elderly and people with heart and lung defects, patients with bronchitis, asthma, emphysema. Smog can cause shortness of breath, difficulty and stop breathing, insomnia, headaches, and coughing. It also causes inflammation of the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and larynx, and a decrease in immunity. During smog, the number of relapses and deaths from respiratory and heart diseases often increases.

The only and, perhaps, the most widely circulated media recommendation on how to protect yourself from smog is to wear a medical mask or respirators. However, even masks do not quite save.

So, how to protect yourself from smog.

- Try not to go outside during the heaviest smoke. You can seal your house well, it can also protect you from inhaling suspended particles.

- If possible, leave the smoky city for a long time. If you are forced to stay in an area with constant smoke, follow the elementary recommendations: a minimum of exercise, quitting smoking, constant monitoring of your own health

- Humidify the air in the room where you spend most of the day. It's good to have a powerful moisturizer. If this is not possible, hang up wet towels, place containers of water and spray water from a spray bottle. Drink as much liquid as possible (water, green tea, juices) - from 2 liters per day.
