Air purifiers DO NOT reduce the exposure to secondhand smoke. Best is not to allow smoking in your vicinity on the occasion of World No Tobacco Day.
Various devices are available for air cleaning, ranging from systems that are incorporated into the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning to simple table top devices and "smokeless ashtrays.
But cleaning air of second hand smoke poses a technical challenge because of the tobacco smoke as well as gases and particles that are included in second hand smoke.
Air cleaning devices typically include filters or electrostatic precipitators to remove particles. Some devices, also include a sorbent, such as activated charcoal, to remove gases. For second hand smoke both elements are needed.
For any air cleaning device to be effective, it must be able to clean a sufficient volume of air in relation to the total volume of the space where it is operating. Few devices are able to clean sufficient volumes of air to be effective in managing smoking indoors.
Small devices, like smokeless ashtrays and many table-top units, offer completely inadequate cleaning capacity.
I been very depressed and disturbed cause of a major incidence happed in my life. I keep on thinking about that and could not able to concentrate on any other thing, even I can not sleep in night. To sleep I started drinking, I know its not good. I need help.
My boyfriend is born Intersex by birth (male and female both) He has the genitals of a Intersex person. (He's not transgender) I'm a normal female and I'm his girlfriend. The problem is that he's struggling with low self esteem. He hates his life because he's a Intersex person. He also suffers from depression and anxiety because of this. He tried committing suicide many years ago and I suspect that he still must be feeling suicidal. I always do my best to keep him happy but nothing works. Please tell me what to do? How should I help him out? I hope he doesn't commit suicide.
