Poor Indoor Air Quality Linked To Workers' Low Cognitive Function

Huffington Post article: Poor Indoor Air Quality Linked To Workers’ Low Cognitive Function

“When lowered CO2 levels were coupled with lower pollutants in buildings, cognitive scores were a whopping 101 percent higher than in conventional buildings.”

This includes lowering indoor VOC pollutants from materials such as fire retardants, paints and glues commonly used in buildings and furniture.

This is a HUGE result, with cognitive function more than DOUBLING with better indoor air quality. The estimated cost of optimizing indoor quality in an office is $30 per person per year, with an estimated productivity increase worth over $6000 per person per year.

Also, people will be happier and die less. Just saying.
