Have your allergies been acting up this year? Consider laying the blame on climate change. According to the Star Ledger, increased temperature generates higher levels of ozone, which can keep smog and pollutants close to the earth’s surface. In addition to low air quality, the temperature has sped up plants’ production of pollen, triggering allergic and asthma attacks.
A coalition of 120 health organizations including the American Lung Association and the American Medical Association are on record for stating:
"Climate change is a serious public health issue. As temperatures rise, more Americans will be exposed to conditions that can result in illness and death due to respiratory illness, heat-and weather-related stress and disease carried by insects. These health issues are likely to have the greatest impact on our most vulnerable communities, including children, older adults, those with serious health conditions and the most economically disadvantaged."
Long-term exposure to poor air conditions can negatively impact the health and wellbeing of everyone in a family. If you’re concerned about the risks, you can invest in a home air purifier to reduce the presence of various pollutants in the home.
