TIP! The American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) recommends, breathe the Cleanest Air Available
Smoggy, polluted air isn't really good for anyone, (can we say DUH?) but those with compromised lung function particularly need to avoid alert-worthy conditions and high allergy days by opting for good indoor air. "Many people don't realize this," says Tom Kallstrom, RRT, AE-C, a registered respiratory therapist and a certified asthma educator, "But about 70 percent of those with asthma suffer from allergy-induced asthma symptoms. Avoid the outdoors during peak traffic hours and exercising or working outside on orange, red, or purple pollution days."
Clean Up the Air Now!
It's also a good idea to avoid breathing secondhand smoke, which can affect those with allergies, asthma and COPD. Secondhand smoke can also cause those who do not have lung disease to develop symptoms and in some cases the same diseases as smokers such as lung cancer and emphysema. Try visiting restaurants that ban smoking and work to keep your home smoke free.
Because of these and many more reasons I did a Mini-site entitled:
Clean Up the Air Now!
We live in a Toxic World, and everything is affected, including the very air we breathe.
Several years ago 2 things happened that made me acutely aware that clean air is very important to my health-and to everyone's health. The first was when I visited some of my family, and they had dogs that stayed in the house part of the time. I began to have some asthma attacks, and ended up in the hospital. It was very scary!
The second thing that occurred we now call Legionnaires' disease. This happened fairly close to my first asthma attacks. I learned about it when a group went to a convention, and many of them became very ill-due to bacteria in the duct-work of the air-conditioning system. This terrible event was splashed across the news, and we all learned the term-Legionnaire's Disease.
Don't stop yet, I want you to keep reading to learn just how serious Legionnaires' disease is, what we can do about our breathable air-outside, inside, and just how our Air affects us.
For more information, and a link to the air purifiers I have used for many years, videos, and pictures keep reading.
You and those you love are worth investing your time, efforts and yes money in learning about this.
