As citizens search to protect themselves from the swine flu virus, one of the best protections may actually be right under our nose. Bringing help to the airlines and general public during this crisis
New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) May 2, 2009 -- With the world facing the ramifications of the spread of the swine flu virus/ H1N1, politicians, governments and citizens are mobilizing to protect themselves by wearing face masks, canceling trips and staying away from crowds.
The H1N1 or swine flu virus, like all flu viruses, is spread by inhalation. Donning face masks is the most obvious form of protection from transmission of viruses, and face mask sales are going thorough the roof. But face masks are not sealed, and air that gets around the side of the mask can be inhaled.
An additional defense against inhaled viruses is already available. Cleanose® is a nasal dust cover made of 100% breathable non-latex, skin-safe material designed to help protect against the inhalation of airborne particles into nasal passages.
Cleanose is a sealable nose filter that is simple to apply, safe and discrete. Since the filter is sealed around your nasal opening, no unfiltered air can be inhaled as long as you breathe thorough your nose. The wearer can still exhale and speak normally through the mouth, as long as all air is inhaled through the nose.
Wearing Cleanose covers over the nasal openings can greatly reduce respiratory exposure to viruses, germs, influenza, colds, bacteria, dust, pollen, pollutants, contaminants, secondhand smoke and inhaled carcinogens.
The CDC recommends a combined approach to help decrease the likelihood of transmission of the current swine flu virus, including frequent hand washing, covering coughs, and having ill persons stay home (except to seek medical care) and minimize contact with others.
Swine flu is not transmitted by food, therefore you can not get it from eating pork or pork products. The symptoms of swine flu in humans are similar to typical flu symptoms including fever, lethargy, lack of appetite, and coughing. Some patients also report runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
The World Cleanose® Corporation (WCC) is proud to introduce Cleanose®, the newest breakthrough in personal air filtration. At WCC, our mission is to help alleviate respiratory suffering by comfortably filtering nasally-inhaled air and removing airborne germs, allergens and/or noxious particles. Through our product, we hope to educate people about the harms of pollutants and contaminants while working to rid the world of these inhaled poisons.
Cleanose is manufactured right here in the United States. WCC prides itself on being both environmentally and economically aware of the world in which we live.
