What is PM 2.5?
- This is the really bad stuff to be breathing in. Particulate Matter (PM) 2.5 refers to the size of the particles in the air. In this case, the particles are 2.5 ug/m^3.
How small is this?
- Small enough to be absorbed into your blood stream. Hence, this is the stuff you want to avoid as it can cause some pretty nasty health defects, more on this below. Masks with N95 rating filter 95% of particles 0.3 microns or larger in diameter, roughly the size of a single virus and include PM 2.5.
- As the name suggests, these masks contain an activated carbon filter, which help collect and filter out the pollutants and germs and breathe in purer air. Studies also say that carbon filters present in the mask may even improve your lung capacity and respiratory muscles, making it a good buy if you live in an extremely polluted city.
