  • Sacramento residents suffering from strong winds, allergies

    Many people across the country are already suffering from allergies, and in Sacramento, the situation is no different. Recently, gusty winds hit the California capital, spreading around pollen that had already fallen from the trees. As a result, more people are sniffling and sneezing with no relief in sight, according to the Sacramento Bee.

    "I thought we were going to get totally annihilated," local allergist Bradley Chipps told the news source. "This year's not quite as frenetic as I thought, but there's still the possibility it could get worse."

    Although medication can be used to treat allergies, some patients have to resort to monthly shots to control their symptoms.

    Individuals who are looking for a natural way to relieve their allergies indoors may want to consider purchasing an air purifier with a HEPA filter. This device can remove allergens from the air.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier may be especially helpful for those who are seeking relief from particles, such as pollen, dust and mold. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap allergens less than 0.3 microns in size.

  • Corpus Christi receives good ratings for clean air

    It can be difficult for individuals with respiratory health complications to live in regions with high levels of pollution, but Corpus Christi is one city where that won't be a problem. Federal data released by the American Lung Association shows that the Texas hub is home to some of the cleanest air in the country, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

    "I think it's important that we let the community know we are doing things right," Kevin Kieschnick, city councilman, told the news source. "Our large industrial customers have invested in making their operations cleaner for all of us. We need to let our community know we have seen great results."

    Experts say that the good rankings are a result of using clean-burning fossil fuels and reducing the number of coal-burning plants.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions, such as asthma, are not always lucky enough to live in regions with low levels of pollution. Air purifiers can help those who have health complications as a result of dust, pollen and other particles in the atmosphere.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is one device that can help remove particles smaller than 0.3 microns from living spaces. The purifier, which has a HyperHEPA filter, covers up to 900 square feet.

  • Reducing air pollution in the workplace

    Recent studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency show that indoor pollution levels are approximately five times higher than those found outdoors due to contaminants from a variety of sources. Dusty cooling and heating systems, tracked-in soil and cleaning products are all to blame for the heightened levels, according to researchers.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions can make their offices a more comfortable place to breathe by taking a few precautionary measures. First, scraper mats for shoes should be placed outside of the entry way to keep pollen and mold from being tracked indoors. Next, heating and cooling systems must be cleaned on a regular basis. Regularly using a vacuum with a HEPA filter can also help.

    To significantly lower your chances of breathing complications, purchase an air purifier for your workplace. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one air purifier that can dramatically reduce the number of contaminants in an office space.

    This purifier covers up to 900 square feet of space. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, such as dust, pollen and pet dander.

  • World Asthma Day pushes for more research of the disease

    In an effort to raise awareness of asthma and other respiratory complications, World Asthma Day 2011 was held on May 3 to support further research into the condition. Approximately 77 percent of individuals who suffer from severe asthma have been hospitalized at least once due to the ailment. More information on asthma may be able to help patients cope with the disease better throughout their lifetime.

    "There is still no cure for asthma," says Tom Flanagan, chair of Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America national board of directors. "I think some people forget that asthma still kills over 4,000 people each year and it's a reminder that more work needs to be done."

    Individuals who suffer from asthma and need to maintain air quality throughout their homes to breathe easily may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A device that operates with a HEPA filter can remove particles from the air that complicate breathing in people with respiratory conditions.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is one product that can increase the quality of life for individuals with asthma. The HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size. This includes smoke, dust, pollen and other irritants.

  • Madison improves air quality, reduces pollution

    Madison, Wisconsin was once regarded as one of the top 25 worst cities to breathe in, but it has made a better name for itself since 2009 when it was considered a haven for air pollution.

    Lisa MacKinnon, project coordinator for the Dane County Clean Air Coalition, recently said that Madison has improved since being named a city with poor air quality by the American Lung Association. Fine particle and ozone layer testing has revealed that pollution in the region has significantly decreased, according to The Capital Times.

    "While we can't take our improved air quality for granted and need to continue to take actions to reduce emissions for public health and the economy, it is also important to make sure people know we are going in the right direction," MacKinnon told Grass Roots, according to the news source.

    Individuals who have respiratory conditions and want to combat the effects of pollution may want to purchase an air purifier, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This device has a HyperHEPA filter that is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size.

    Those who use an air purifier can remove particles such as dust, pollen and smoke from their living space. This can relieve conditions such as allergies and asthma.
