  • Montana student group pushes for clean air legislation

    Many people hope for cleaner air without taking action against pollution, but one group is out to make a difference against companies that release toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. Recently, the University of Montana Climate Action Now group asked the Missoula Chamber of Commerce in Montana to consider instituting clean air legislation.

    Approximately 20 people from Missoula environmental groups participated in protests in Washington, D.C. against air pollution, according to NBC affiliate KECI. The students also shared their concerns with senators at a local environmental conference.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions are often the most affected by air pollution. Air purifiers can remove airborne particles from your indoor environment and make it easier to breathe.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is an effective device in the battle against pollution. Its HyperHEPA filter can trap particles that cause irritation in individuals with conditions such as allergies and asthma.

    Individuals can remove dust, pollen and smoke within 900 square feet of the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier. The filter is designed to trap ultra-fine particles that are less than 0.3 microns in size. Homeowners who want to relieve themselves of polluted air can use a purifier to remove toxins from their living spaces.

  • Proper nutrition may relieve allergy symptoms

    Allergies and asthma are two common conditions found in adults and children alike. However, the spring season doesn't have to mean endless sneezing and watery eyes. New research shows that a balanced diet may be able to reduce the risk of allergic reactions.

    Fred Pescatore, the author of "The Allergy and Asthma Cure," says that science is continuing to prove that food may play a key role in allergy symptoms.

    "Proper nutrition can make a dramatic difference," Pescatore says.

    Through his research, Pescatore states that individuals with mold allergies can reduce their symptoms by adhering to a low-yeast diet. Those with grass allergies can relieve their runny noses by avoiding high consumption of grain.

    However, not all individuals are willing to dramatically change their diets on a whim. People who want to go another route to reduce their symptoms may want to purchase an air purifier.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier has a HyperHEPA filter, designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. This includes dust, pollen, mold and smoke. Individuals who suffer from allergies and asthma can breathe easier when using the IQAir HealthPro Plus, which clears air within 900 square feet of the device.

  • Boilers to shut down after scrutiny from the EPA

    The burning of resources such as coal has long been argued over due to the pollution it creates in the atmosphere. Now, 18 boilers owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority have been forced to shut down in an effort to reduce the waste distributed into the air, according to Forbes magazine.

    The closing of the boilers will significantly reduce the amount of carbon emissions released by the Tennessee Valley Authority. This development is the result of a lawsuit filed by the Environmental Protection Agency, claiming that the emissions were extremely detrimental to the environment.

    Air pollution can cause a number of health complications and worsen respiratory illnesses such as asthma. Individuals who want to improve the air quality in their homes may want to consider purchasing an air purifier.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is one example of a device that can remove harmful particles using a HyperHEPA filter. The product is designed to trap particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size, including dust, pollen and ragweed. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is also helpful for individuals who have an allergy to pet dander.

  • Nebraska health officials warn of high levels of air pollution

    Air pollution can result from a number of things, including car exhaust and the burning of fossil fuels. However, nature can also play a role in the amount of air pollution that develops in certain areas across the country, according to NTV, an ABC affiliate.

    Recently, health officials in Nebraska warned residents in the Lincoln region that air pollution levels have reached dangerous levels as a result of local wild fires. The problem arose when a number of small fires in a grassy ditch continued to grow and affect nearby homes.

    Health officials say that the air is unsafe for individuals with respiratory problems, the elderly, young children and pregnant women.

    Homeowners who want to reduce the stress on their lungs by removing dangerous air particles from their living spaces may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one example of a device that can remove lung irritants from homes.

    The product is designed to trap ultra-fine particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size with its HyperHEPA filter. It is ideal for individuals with allergies to pet dander, pollen and dust. The IQAir Health ProPlus air purifier can also remove smoke and pollution within up to 900 square feet.

  • Allergy season expected to last 27 more days this year

    Allergy season is dreaded by many Americans who suffer from reactions due to pollen, ragweed and mold. Over-the-counter medications can relieve the symptoms of seasonal allergies, but individuals may have to cope for an extended period of time in the future.

    A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says that allergy season will most likely last until October in northern regions of the United States. This is approximately 27 days longer than previous allergy seasons, as the unusual warm weather has encouraged the distribution of pollen from trees.

    Individuals who want to reduce the amount of medication they take to relieve their symptoms may want to purchase an air purifier to remove allergens from their living spaces.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is ideal for allergy sufferers and individuals with asthma as well. The air purifier can remove bacteria, pollen, dust and mold spores from rooms to help people breathe easier. The HyperHEPA filter is designed to catch ultra fine particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size. With the IQAir HealthPro Plus, those with allergies can find relief indoors without the need to take multiple medications.

  • Taking preventative measures to avoid allergy symptoms

    Allergy season is almost in full swing as more trees and flowers bloom, spreading pollen and other irritants. Many individuals search for relief in over-the-counter medications, but the answer to eliminating symptoms may not be at the pharmacy, according to the Washington Post.

    "Avoiding exposure [to pollen] on a day-to-day or hour-to-hour basis goes a long way," Mike Tringale, a spokesman for the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, told the news source.

    Taking a shower after spending an ample amount of time outdoors can prevent allergens from making their way inside of the house, the Post reports. Purchasing an air purifier can also do wonders for those who suffer from asthma and allergies throughout the year.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one example of an air purifier that can rid up to 900 square feet of bacteria and other irritants, such as mold spores and pollen. The device has a built-in HyperHEPA filter designed to trap unseen particles that are responsible for causing allergic reactions.

    With the IQAir HealthPro Plus, homeowners can also remove irritating pet dander and air pollutants that can cause breathing complications.

  • Ragweed season may continue well into the fall

    Ragweed and pollen may not only be allergy irritants known to spring, but autumn as well, according to new research.

    A study conducted by Linda Ford and her colleagues concluded that ragweed season is stretching out into the fall, the Omaha World-Herald reports. For allergy sufferers, this means more sniffling and sneezing.

    In the Omaha area, which was examined during a part of the study, the season became longer between 1995 and 2009. Ragweed was present for an average of 11 extra days, and the season was even longer in northern regions of the country.

    Air purifiers can help homeowners find relief from their allergy symptoms indoors. Those who suffer from long periods of itchy eyes and runny noses may want to purchase the IQAir HealthPro Plus to get rid of allergens in the air.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter designed to catch small particles that can cause allergic reactions, such as dust and bacteria. Homeowners who find themselves constantly sneezing from pet dander and tobacco smoke can also benefit from the air purifier, which removes these particles within 900 square feet of the device.

  • Southeast expected to have a long, grueling allergy season

    With allergy season looming, people are already beginning to feel the effects of trees shedding their pollen. Recently, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America released a list of the 13 worst cities for allergies this season, bearing in mind that chronic indoor and outdoor allergies are the fifth leading chronic disease in the U.S., according to KGO Newstalk 810.

    Nine cities on the list hailed from the Southeast region of the country, with Knoxville, Louisville and Charlotte rounding out the top three. Jackson, Birmingham and Chattanooga also made it onto the list.

    Taking preventative steps can help cut down on the number of allergens that make their way indoors. Try to avoid drying clothes outside during the warm weather season. When possible, shower after spending time outdoors to remove pollen from skin and clothing, KGO Newstalk 810 says.

    Individuals who suffer from allergies throughout the year might want to consider purchasing a top market air purifier such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This device has a HyperHEPA filter, which is designed to trap particles that are as small as .03 microns in size. In turn, users can remove bacteria and particles, such as pollen and dust, from the air in their homes. This can help allergy and asthma sufferers breathe a little easier.

  • Warm weather causing more trees to release pollen

    Many people across the country are beginning to show symptoms of seasonal allergies, despite cold weather still lingering in certain regions. However, extreme temperature fluctuations are to blame for the early onset of the allergy season, according to the New York Daily News. Warm weather spurred trees to bud and spread pollen, while cold weather caused it to linger.

    "Just like predicting the weather, it's hard to predict how bad an allergy season will be," William Reisacher, director of the allergy center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell, told the news source.

    Individuals with severe allergies are advised to stay indoors between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. when pollen counts are extremely high. Those who want to take control of the situation in their own homes can purchase the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier to breathe a little easier.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is equipped with a HyperHEPA filter to trap fine particles that can trigger itchy eyes and runny noses for allergy sufferers. Most air purifiers can only capture particles larger than 0.3 microns in size, but the IQAir HealthPro Plus' filter is designed to catch smaller particles that are responsible for allergic reactions.

  • Using air purifiers to combat local pollution

    Power plants are beneficial to regions in need of electricity, but they can do substantial damage to the environment. In an effort to make sure the air stays clean, environmental protection groups have recently united near downtown Milwaukee against a coal plant, according to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.

    An air pollutant permit was issued by state regulators to the coal power plant, but environmental advocates say that it does not do enough to protect the public. Changes may be made to the permit over the next year.

    "It's great that they're deciding," Jennifer Feyerherm, the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal campaign representative, told the news source. "We need a decision now because Milwaukee air quality is bad now."

    Homeowners in the region who want to breathe easily may want to consider purchasing the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier. While most air purifiers catch particles at 0.3 microns, the IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter to catch smaller particles that can cause allergic reactions and illness. By using an air purifier to capture unseen contaminants, homeowners may be able to remove more bacteria from the air they breathe.
