Heat is generally a catalyst for chemical reactions. The heat from the sun during summer months has the temperature touching 50-degree Celsius in some parts of the country. Today, our outdoor environment is so riddled with airborne and static chemical elements that the rising mercury during summers has become a health concern for everyone.

The excessive heat from the sun is breaking down or merging gaseous elements, making the air more toxic to breathe.
