Indoor air pollution can be upto 5 times deadlier than outdoor air pollution. This is so because of particulate matter, allergens, bacteria and harmful gases like benzene, xylene, toluene etc.

NASA conducted a study on plants which absorb these gases and found many plants which they tagged as ‘air-purifying’. These plants cleanse the air of these gases and produce oxygen!
