Combating Air Pollution in Our Homes

The weather lately is not that good, it changed dramatically for the last few weeks. It started out so cold at the beginning of the year where we found ourselves wearing jackets when we go outside or even inside the house. There are even times when I have to put on socks for the cold temperature is making me chill and uncomfortable. We thought that weather will last for more weeks but as when February just came in, the heat has started to creep. Oh boy, we're already complaining how hot it was most especially outside.

I guess the weather makes a lot of people getting sick most especially the kids. My 8 yr old niece got sick for few days with colds and fever and her parents need to consult her doctor for medicines. The weather and the pollution are just some of the factors that makes us sick. The air that we breath everyday can also make us acquire diseases for there are allergens that are floating in the air.

Keeping our homes safe from these allergens can be minimized if not totally eradicate them. One of the many solutions that we can do is by getting air purifiers like those made by Rabbit Air. Molds, pet dander, odors and even cigarette smoke can be filtered this making the air in our house more safer to breathe.

My Cousin's Got a Big "C"

After sobbing while watching disturbing videos on Youtube early today I was faced with a heavy heart once again. I was chatting with my older sister over at YM this afternoon and we were talking about our reconnecting to our cousins in the US via Facebook . I remember my sis telling me that one of my cousin has undergone another surgery and is recuperating so I asked about her once again.

I was dumbfounded when I learned that she was diagnosed to have breast and uterus cancer. Deadly "c' got her and my sis told me that she has few more months or years to live. This is sooooo sad news that I only learned today. I am speechless!.  After losing 2 aunts from breast cancer, now it's her who is affected.

I am actually scared to know that because that only means that it runs in our family and I should really be worried about. I only hope that my cousin can still recover and still a miracle can happen. My prayers are with her.
