Those who live in major cities are probably well-aware of the risks associated with pollution, but a new study has found increasing evidence of the spread of ozone smog and its links to respiratory ailments.
"The study found that even at low levels, ozone smog increases the risk of asthma attacks and irritation in the respiratory system. Together with air pollution it can also contribute to heart attacks and strokes," Voice of America News reports.
According to the news source, this affects at least 20 million Americans who suffer from asthma and take precautionary measures not to breathe too many bus fumes or subject themselves to more pollution than is necessary on a day-to-day basis.
Those who wish to minimize their exposure to pollution should invest in a professional-grade air purifying system. The advanced filtration technologies found in FreshAirPro's line of top-quality brands will provide the best line of defense against pollutants as well as a range of other airborne contaminants.
