Air chemicals are as dangerous as food additives. Maybe even more dangerous because we can’t avoid them! The air from work is very toxic, especially if you work in a crowded indoor place, due to air conditioning and printers, and other office machines. Other pollution sources found at the office? Yes! The furniture, fixed and synthetic carpets, cleaning products, air fresheners are accumulating bacteria and other toxic compounds, called volatile organic compounds (VOCs). But we can’t avoid this and we can’t live in a crystal glass, but we definitely can try to absorb these horrible chemicals with the help of indoor plants!
