Clean air laws have always been a battle between those who believe that healthy air is the most important direction we can take, and those who worry that the costs of implementing these changes would be more than the economy and taxpayers could handle.
Clean air advocates have had cause to celebrate in recent months, as the Environmental Protection Agency's improved emission standards won them a significant victory in the fight against air pollution. The new guidelines, which are supposed to significantly improve the air and the quality of life throughout the country, focus largely on the few remaining factories that have been running unrestricted for decades, spewing toxins into the air with no filters.
Still, the battle for clean air is still being fought, as this victory has managed to distract the heavy loss from earlier in the year when new smog control laws for heavily polluted areas were rejected.
As the government plays back and forth on which pollutants to limit and which to allow to continue, you can keep your home safe from the danger these toxins may cause by investing in a medical-grade air purifier.
