Air quality has become a major topic of study in recent years,
with data revealing that terrible air quality — both indoor and
outdoor — can lead to a variety of illnesses and even increased
mortality. It’s tempting to imagine that bringing a bit of nature
into your home in the form of a potted plant might move the needle
in your favor, but a new study published in the Journal of
Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology suggests
that’s just not the case.
The study is a meta-review of a dozen other research efforts
related to the study of indoor air quality and what factors
directly affect it. The analysis focused on how well efficiently
potted plants can remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from
indoor air. Unfortunately, they’re pretty bad at it.
