Comfortable indoor relative humidity (percentage of moisture in the air) level is 35%. Many homes can have a relative humidity level as low as 7% in the winter.
Pneumococcus, staphylococcus, and streptococcus bacteria die up to 20 times faster at relative humidity between 45% and 55%, than above 70% or below 20%.
One of the most common health issues that plague our society is dehydration.
Most of the tissue in the body is composed of water. If it loses the water,
the tissue dries up, its elasticity goes, and with it function declines.
Besides dry skin, the symptoms of dehydration include chronic joint and muscle pain, raspy throat, sore eyes, and difficulty concentrating.
Humidification can protect your investments.
