The World Health Organization estimates there are roughly 3 billion people cook and heat their homes using open fires and simple stoves burning biomass (wood, animal dung, and crop waste) and coal.
Such inefficient cooking fuels and technologies produce high levels of household air pollution with a range of health-damaging pollutants, including small soot particles that sneak into the lungs. In poorly ventilated homes, indoor smoke can be 100 times higher than acceptable levels for fine particles. Exposure is particularly high among women and young children, who spend the most time indoors.
Over 4 million people die prematurely from illness associated with the household air pollution from cooking with solid fuels.
Approximately 50% of premature deaths due to pneumonia among children under 5 are caused by the particulate matter (soot) inhaled from household air pollution. Furthermore, 3.8 million premature deaths annually from non-communicable diseases including stroke, ischaemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer are attributed to exposure to indoor air pollution.

How Humidifiers Can Help
A humidifier uses a humidity-sensing control that turns the humidifier on and off and a water panel that adds water vapor to the circulated air when needed. In dry air conditions, the sensor recognizes the humidity level and adjusts the amount of added water vapor, giving your skin the moisture it needs and helping to keep your home from drying out.
