Air Quality

Air pollution can be a threat to our health. Many harmful air pollutants make it difficult for us to be able to Breathe Well.

Here are some important things you should know about healthier air at home:

In the outdoors, pollution is a mixture of solid particles and gases in the air. Car emissions, chemicals from factories, dust, pollen and mold spores may be suspended as particles. A gas called ozone is a big part of air pollution in cities. When ozone forms air pollution, it's also called smog.

Some air pollutants are poisonous. Inhaling them can increase the chance you'll have health problems. People with heart or lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from air pollution.
