New Delhi is currently experiencing the worst condition of air pollution in its history, and the situation has no end in sight. Until the general problem can truly be dealt with, people need to think about their health. The reduction of our carbon footprint has to happen soon, and each small step matters. The government has to put strict rules into place and follow them without question.
In the meantime, people in India have to look after their health. Most ignore the pollution, but the use of air pollution masks should be considered. It is important however not to use cheap pollution masks, as they do not protect much and their life is very short.
In this article, we will go over several of the better air pollution masks. Keep in mind that the size depends on your weight. Also, they come with N100, N99, N95 ratings, so try to get the N99 rating or N95 at least.
