  • New Jersey community bans smoking in public places

    It's widely known that cigarette smoking can cause a slew of health problems, ranging from lung cancer to emphysema. This is why more cities across the country are attempting to make a difference by putting a ban on smoking and protecting others from second-hand smoke.

    Recently, legislative officials in Paramus, New Jersey, discussed banning smoking in public places. An ordinance was made official to prohibit smoking in parks, swimming facilities and playgrounds. Although the fines run as steep as $500, the goal is to encourage people to quit and make it easier to breathe in the community.

    "We're very pleased that the Paramus Board of Health is very interested in preserving public health in Paramus for its residents and visitors to parks, especially since the parks are places where people congregate to engage in physical activity," Karen Blumenfeld, executive director of New Jersey Global Advisors on Smokefree Policy, told the news source.

  • New York City residents calling for smoking ban in apartments

    Recently, a ban has swept across New York City, preventing smokers from lighting up everywhere from restaurants to public parks. However, the New York Post reports that more people are pushing for more limits for cigarette users: in apartment buildings.

    More residents in the Big Apple, specifically those who live in condominiums, are suffering from second-hand smoke as a result of their neighbors. The chemicals from second-hand smoke can be just as dangerous to individuals as they are to smokers, increasing the risk of health complications, such as cancer.

    "Smoking in residential buildings is the hottest, newest issue now," real estate attorney Adam Leitman Bailey told the news source, citing a number of complaints from apartment residents.

  • Nasal spray may be the solution to hay fever in the future

    Many over-the-counter medicines claim to be able to provide relief to those who suffer from hay fever, but CBS News reports that a new herbal nasal spray may be the answer to the elimination of symptoms. Researchers from the University of Goetheburg in Sweden say that a formulated spray containing traces of pine tree might ease hay fever symptoms.

    "The cellulose powder has no adverse effects, and this fact makes it a particularly attractive treatment for children," Nils Aberg, lead researcher, told the news source.

    An advantage to using an herbal remedy is it comes with less side effects than over-the-counter or prescription medications. More testing is required on the spray before it will be widely available to the public.

  • Jefferson County health officials push for more anti-smoking legislation

    As more cities institute bans on public smoking, local governments and programs are standing up to vouch for more legislation in favor of cigarette-free areas. Recently, officials from the Jefferson County Department of Public Health in Alabama applauded the city of Fultondale for issuing a law against public smoking, according to CBS affiliate CBS42.

    In light of the development, the Department of Public Health representatives are now working to make the entire county smoke-free. Their argument is that there is no safe level of secondhand smoke, and cities would be better off health-wise if similar laws were passed.

    "It's a gold standard because it protects everyone," Teri Chafin, Director of Community and Dental Health, Jefferson County Department of Public Health, told the news source. "There are no exemptions for private spaces or private businesses that employ workers so you know you don't have to choose between a paycheck and your health."

  • Drought helps ragweed sufferers in Texas

    Pollen has caused immense suffering for individuals living with allergies in Austin, Texas, this year. However, experts say that they may be able to find relief from ragweed this season as a result of an unexpected drought.

    Because there has been almost no rainfall in the region this spring and summer, researchers say that ragweed plants have not been able to grow, according to ABC affiliate KVUE-TV. Ragweed season typically begins in mid-August and can last into the fall.

    "With this bad drought and no rainfall, most of the ragweed plants did not sprout or have died already this year," Bill Howland, a doctor with the Allergy and Asthma Center of Austin, told the news source. "We anticipate this ragweed season will be much easier for allergy patients."

  • Smoking may cause birth defects in newborns

    Most people know that smoking can cause a slew of negative health effects, especially in pregnant women. However, it can be difficult to kick the habit, even when carrying another life.

    Mothers who smoke during pregnancy may not only be putting their own health at risk, but the health of their unborn child, according to the Los Angeles Times. It has been known for years that smoking can increase the risk of miscarriage, but a study recently published in the Human Reproduction Update journal shows that cigarette usage can also raise the odds of other ailments in newborns.

    Deformed limbs, cleft palette and heart problems are now linked to mothers who smoke while pregnant.

    Second-hand smoke can also have a negative effect on expecting mothers and the general public alike. The chemicals in cigarette smoke can make it difficult to breathe for individuals with respiratory conditions.

  • Secondhand smoke may impair hearing in teens

    Most people are aware that secondhand smoke comes with negative health consequences, but new research suggests that it may specifically do a significant amount of damage to adolescents. A study conducted by experts from the New York University Langone Medical Center found that hearing may be impaired in teenagers if they are constantly exposed to secondhand smoke.

    Although they have not officially deemed secondhand smoke as the primary cause for impaired hearing in adolescents, the researchers said it may disrupt blood flow in the ears.

    "We need to increase focus on this population at risk [for hearing loss] during adolescence who now have risk factors such as noise factors or secondhand smoke," Anil Lalwani, who worked on the study, told Reuters Health.

    Systems, such as the IQ Air GC MultiGas Air Purifier, can be especially helpful in making it easier to breathe around smokers.

  • Pet dander from hypoallergenic dogs still pose threat to allergy sufferers

    In recent years, more individuals have attempted to overcome allergies through adopting or purchasing "hypoallergenic dogs." However, new research suggests that these lovable pets may not be so allergy-friendly after all, according to WebMD.

    Recently, a study published in the American Journal of Rhinology and Allergy showed that widely promoted "hypoallergenic dogs" are no better for allergy sufferers than other breeds. Portuguese water dogs, poodles and schnauzers have all been deemed hypoallergenic, but research shows that they can still be problematic for allergy patients.

    Approximately 92 percent of dust samples collected in 173 homes with one dog showed detectable traces of pet dander and allergens. Researchers also concluded that it had nothing to do with the breed.

    Individuals who suffer from pet allergies or seasonal hay fever may want to consider utilizing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove irritants from the atmosphere, making it easier to breathe.

    The IQ HealthPro Plus system can clear up to 900 square feet of space. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, such as pet dander and dust. This can be an efficient way to cope with allergies on a regular basis.
