Impact of Global Warming on our Nasal & Respiratory Health


Today we’re talking about a topic that might make you sit up and smell the roses - or rather, the polluted air.

We’ll be talking about how global warming is affecting our ability to breathe and, more specifically, how it’s making our noses feel drier than ever. We’ll break down the science in a way that’s easy to understand and explore why products like Rhinaris® are more essential than ever in the age of climate change.

The Connection Between Global Warming and Nasal Dryness

Did you know the Earth’s rising temperatures aren’t just causing ice caps to melt and extreme weather events? They’re also impacting our respiratory health [1].

One of the most noticeable effects of global warming is the increase in air pollution. As temperatures rise, so does the production of pollutants from industrial processes, vehicle emissions, and other sources. This pollution is loaded with tiny particles and gasses that can irritate our respiratory system and dry out our nasal passages.[2]

How Does Dry Nasal Passage Affect Breathing?

So, how does dryness in your nose affect your breathing? Well, it’s a bit like trying to breathe through a parched desert instead of a lush garden. Dry nasal passages can make it harder for your nose to filter out impurities and humidify the air you breathe [3]. This can lead to a range of uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • Nasal Congestion: Dry nasal passages can lead to congestion as your body tries to protect itself from irritants by producing excess mucus. This can make it difficult to breathe through your nose.
  • Irritation: Dryness can lead to itching and discomfort in the nasal passages, making you more likely to rub or pick your nose, which can worsen the problem.
  • Nosebleeds: Dry nasal passages are more susceptible to cracks and bleeding. Constant nosebleeds are a clear sign that your nose needs some attention.
  • Scabbing: Dry nasal passages can lead to crusty and scabby nostrils which can cause discomfort.
  • Increased Vulnerability to Infections: A dry nose is more vulnerable to infections as the moist protective layer [4].

Global Warming: A Culprit Behind Nasal Dryness

As global warming continues to affect the planet, it exacerbates these symptoms. The increase in air pollution means more irritants are entering your nose, causing even more discomfort and dryness. Moreover, the changing climate can lead to more frequent and severe allergies and can further exacerbate nasal dryness.

The good news is that you can take steps to protect your nose and maintain comfortable breathing even in the face of global warming. This is where products like Rhinaris® come into play.
