Air quality levels impact children's safety

The physical environment children live in can have a significant impact on their health. Exposure to outdoor and indoor air pollutants such as ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and fine particulate matter can cause respiratory illnesses like asthma, according to the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics.

The source claims that in 2010, 67 percent of children  up to a maximum age of 17 years old lived in counties with air pollution levels above one or more current air quality standards set by the federal or state government. This is up from 59 percent in 2009 but down from the 77 percent recorded in 2003.

A high concentration of air pollutants in a home can lead to physical and developmental problems in children that can affect them for the rest of their lives.
