Montana residents support EPA regulations for pollution

Air pollution has long been known to cause a number of health complications and even increase the mortality rate among individuals exposed to toxic chemicals for extended periods of time. However, residents in the Billings, Montana, area have been lucky enough to avoid these complications, thanks to the Clean Air Act.

Recently, a petroleum and manufacturing industry conglomerate has been pushing Montana legislators to loosen Clean Air Act regulations, claiming that they hurt the economy. However, experts say that the act has saved billions of dollars in healthcare costs that would be related to dangerous respiratory conditions, according to the Billings Gazette.

A survey conducted by the State of the Rockies Project found that 62 percent of Montana voters support Environmental Protection Agency regulations.

Individuals living with a respiratory condition in a polluted area may want to consider purchasing an air purifier to help them breathe easier in their living spaces.

The IQAir HealthPro Plus can help remove air pollutants from up to 900 square feet with its HyperHEPA filter. The air purifier is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, ranging from pollen to cigarette smoke. This may help prevent allergic reactions and future asthma attacks.
