Los Angeles schools tackle asthma with air filters

Getting asthma under control may not be easy, but measures can be taken to enhance air quality in the spaces where asthma sufferers spend most of their time.

The Los Angeles Times reports that over 40 schools in the Wilmington metro area will be equipped with air filtration systems in an effort to reduce asthma symptoms among students. The condition has been linked to elevated pollution levels in the Port of Los Angeles.

The filters are part of a deal made by environmental groups with the city of L.A. in 2008 to alleviate health symptoms caused by cargo pollution. At least 40 percent of the nation's imported goods come through the port, resulting in high concentrations of harmful contaminants, the news source reports.

High quality air purifiers such as the ones being installed in the schools use the most effective methods of removing airborne particles and pollution indoors. Those who wish to invest in a filtration system for their own homes should look to FreshAirPro for the highest-rated, best-trusted brands on the market today.
