Secondhand smoke is known to cause a number of health complications, and it can be especially harmful to children. In an effort to reduce kids' exposure to secondhand smoke, more communities are instituting ordinances to ban public smoking.
Recently, the town board in Colden, New York, adopted a new policy to ban smoking on public athletic grounds. These places are often where kids of all ages play and may be susceptible to inhaling secondhand smoke.
Officials also noted that these recreational parks promote a healthy lifestyle. However, allowing individuals to smoke in the area is contradicting the purpose of the fields. The town hopes to reduce secondhand smoke in the area and limit the amount of exposure to children.
The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier is one system that can help individuals remove secondhand smoke from the air in their living spaces. This air purifier has a HyperHEPA filter that can remove toxins that come from cigarettes.
Unlike other air purifiers, the IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier can also trap ultrafine particles that may cause irritation in the lungs and airborne illnesses.
