Did you know? Fighting haze protects our hearts from deadly pollution
Haze has just been shown to be a literally heart-breaking disaster. A recent study led by Singapore General Hospital (SGH) found that the risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest increased by 30% when the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) level entered the unhealthy range of above 100. In addition, with every 30-point increase in PSI levels, there’s an additional risk of 5% to 19%.
In any case, prevention is always better than cure. This is why preventing fire on the ground and creating demand for sustainable palm oil and paper products that promotes haze-free practices through the supply chain is crucial to stopping the haze.
