  • Minnesota community college goes smoke-free

    Cigarettes can have a negative impact on a smoker's health, but the smoke can be harmful to those around users as well. In an effort to improve the health of individuals on campus, administrators at Riverland Community College in Minnesota have banned smoking around the school, according to ABC affiliate KAAL-TV.

    Terry Leas, the president of Riverland Community College, realized that it was becoming increasingly difficult to push for a healthier lifestyle while allowing smoking across campus. To give everyone peace of mind, Leas moved forward with plans to ban cigarette usage.

    "I think its in the best interest of employees and students," Leas told the news source.

    Cigarette smoke can be especially harmful to individuals who suffer from respiratory ailments such as asthma. Those who may have an adverse reaction to second-hand smoke may want to consider purchasing an air purifier to remove the toxins from the atmosphere.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier is a system that can effectively eliminate harmful cigarette smoke chemicals from the air. With its HyperHEPA filter, the IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier can get rid of toxic airborne particles, such as vinyl chloride, trimethylamine, trihylamine and trichloroethylene.

  • Wildfire smoke causing problems for individuals with asthma

    A number of regions across the country have fallen victim to wildfires, and Florida is one of them. As a result, individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions are feeling the pressure from wildfire smoke, according to The Independent Florida Alligator.

    Approximately 10 percent of the population in the U.S. lives with asthma, which can be aggravated as a result of smoke and smog. Asthma attacks in patients are more common as direct result of smoke and can require medical attention.

    "Anybody who has intrinsic lung disease could be affected," Dr. Mark Brantly from Shands HealthCare at the University of Florida told the news source. "These individuals have a hypersensitivity to stimuli."

    Staying indoors is one option, but individuals may still suffer from inhaling ultrafine particles that make their way into the home. An air purifier is one way to remove pollution from the atmosphere and make it easier to breathe.

    The IQ HealthPro Plus is a system that contains a HyperHEPA filter, designed to eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size from up to 900 square feet of space. It can be especially helpful for individuals living with asthma or allergies.

  • Regular inhalation of smog may cause depression in individuals

    It is common knowledge that smog has negative health effects, but more researchers are warning that there may be a direct effect on cognitive abilities. Recently, experts determined that air pollution can have a damaging impact on the brain and even result in depression.

    The study, which was published in Molecular Psychiatry, is one of the first to examine how smog affects the brain. Previously, experts had conducted studies on how pollution impacts the lungs and heart.

    A group of mice were exposed to air pollution for five days a week throughout the course of 10 months. After this time period, tests found that they showed more depressive-like behaviors as a result of the smog.

    Individuals who want to remove smog from their homes may want to purchase the IQ HealthPro Plus. The system can remove microns smaller than 0.3 microns in size from the air with its HyperHEPA filter, making it easier to breathe.

    If cigarette smoke is a constant problem, the IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor air purifier is a must. This system can remove chemicals, such as acrolein, acetone and acetic acid, from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Pollen season expected to remain brutal throughout the summer

    The worst of it may be over for some allergy sufferers once spring ends, but for many, sniffling and sneezing continues well into the summer months. High pollen counts are to blame, and experts say that there is little relief in sight, according to KVAL News.

    Justin Treat, a doctor with the Allergy and Asthma Center in Eugene, Oregon, told the news source that tree and grass pollen are common causes for itchy, watery eyes and sneezing during this time of year.

    Treat also added that knowing what you are allergic to can play a crucial role in treating symptoms. Although pollen is a big culprit for many, ragweed and mold spores can cause allergic reactions as well.

    There are many ways that homeowners can reduce their allergy symptoms through methods other than medical treatment. Air purifiers are one way to remove pollen from a living space through a HEPA filter.

    The IQ HealthPro Plus is a system that can be especially beneficial for those with allergies and respiratory ailments. Its HyperHEPA filter can remove pollen and other ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, preventing airborne illnesses.

  • Ohio commission fails to properly issue ozone alerts

    Ozone alerts are issued in regions where smog levels are considered to be dangerous to breathe, but new research shows that warnings have been issued needlessly in Ohio several times already this year.

    Since January 2010, 15 ozone alerts have been issued for central Ohio, according to The Columbus Dispatch. Out of these warnings, 12 of them were false alarms. Although it seems better to be safe than sorry, inaccuracy spans across the board.

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission has failed to issue ozone alerts on 12 days when the air pollution levels were hazardous. In 2009, the commission only had a 25 percent success rate when it came to establishing alerts.

    Individuals who want to breathe easier on a regular basis may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove particles that can irritate the lungs and cause complications for people with respiratory conditions such as asthma.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter that is designed to eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. This is ideal for individuals who suffer from allergies and want to remove irritants from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Ozone alert issued for numerous South Carolina counties

    With summer comes sweltering heat, and this warm weather is notorious for trapping pollution at ground-level. Recently, an ozone alert was issued on June 20 for York, Chester and Lancaster counties in South Carolina. This comes after a heat wave entered the region, resulting in temperatures close to 100 degrees, according to the Herald Online.

    "When ozone levels are elevated, active children and adults as well as people with respiratory diseases, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion," Myra Reece, chief of the Department of Health and Environmental Control bureau of air quality, told the news source.

    During ozone alerts, the level of air pollution is considered hazardous to breathe, especially for children and elderly adults. Individuals are encouraged to postpone outdoor activities until the warning is lifted.

    Air purifiers that include a HEPA filter can make it easier for individuals to breathe at home. They can be especially helpful for those suffering from respiratory conditions.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus can remove irritating particles from up to 900 square feet with its HyperHEPA filter. The device eliminates everything from dust to pollen in living spaces.

  • Sporting groups encourage Congress to maintain Clean Air standards

    As air pollution continues to remain a problem across the country, more environmental enthusiasts are doing their part to prevent Clean Air legislation from falling out of favor. Recently, more than 330 sporting groups gathered to propose their stance to Congress, according to the Independent Record.

    Approximately 30 of these groups were from Montana. The objective was to urge Congress to steer away from lowering carbon emissions standards, which can result in higher amounts of pollution.

    "There's nothing hard and fast coming up in Congress, but what happened this spring was it was attached as riders; at the last minute they stick things on bills, without any hearings or public processes," Dave Dittloff, representative from the National Wildlife Federation, told the news source.

    Individuals who want to breathe easier may want to consider purchasing an air purifier to remove irritants from their living spaces.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter that can trap ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size for up to 900 square feet. This can be beneficial for individuals suffering from allergies and respiratory ailments such as asthma.

  • Arizona mulling over the idea of lowering carbon emissions standards

    Arizona has some of the toughest car emissions legislation currently in place, but this may soon change if legislators choose to reduce existing laws to national standards. Recently, lawmakers discussed lowering carbon emissions regulations originally set by governor Janet Napolitano through the Clean Car Program, according to the East Valley Tribune.

    The Clean Car Program was created because Arizona has poor air quality compared to other regions of the country. The American Lung Association gave several Arizona counties an F ranking in its State of the Air report.

    "This program helps to ensure cleaner vehicles, which means less air pollution," Diane Brown, executive director of Arizona Public Interest Research Group Education Fund, told the news source. "It also reduces asthma attacks and other adverse health problems."

    But if some legislators get their way, those standards could soon be relaxed - increasing pollution in many areas of the state. Individuals who live in a polluted area may want to consider purchasing an air purifier to remove smog from living spaces through a HEPA filter.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus can also be beneficial to those who want to breathe easier. Its HyperHEPA filter can remove ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Ozone alert issued in Florida as a result of wildfires

    Fires are not only damaging on ground level, but in the atmosphere as well. Recently, a slew of wildfires has created hazardous air pollution in many regions of the country. Florida is not exempt from the blazes, which prompted environmental officials to issue an ozone alert in Hillsborough County, according to WTSP-TV.

    According to the administrators who announced the alert, wildfires made the air unsafe to breathe on June 16 and 17. Individuals with respiratory ailments were advised to stay indoors, along with elderly adults and young children.

    When an ozone alert is in effect, individuals are encouraged to postpone their outdoor activities until the warning is lifted. Commuters are also advised to carpool or use public transportation to reduce carbon emissions.

    Individuals who want to remove the pollution from their living spaces may want to use an air purifier. A HEPA filter can eliminate irritating particles from the air and make it easier to breathe.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is an excellent option for those who want to remove air pollution. Its HyperHEPA filter can clear up to 900 square feet of space and eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size.

  • Pollen counts remain high through the spring season

    Allergy sufferers who believe that this season is more severe than others may be onto something - new research suggests that pollen counts have been abnormally high thus far for 2011, according to USA Today.

    Pollen is typically carried by insects, such as bees, but wind can sweep the particles from plants as well. Dry weather has contributed to lingering pollen in many regions of the country, and continues to cause irritation for individuals prone to allergic reactions.

    "Usually, by this time of the year, the pollen count goes down, and people usually aren't prepared to be dealing with allergies in late May," Joseph Leija, an allergist at Loyola University Health System's Gottlieb Memorial Hospital, told the news source.

    Air purifiers are a necessity for individuals suffering from allergies who want to remove irritating particles from the air through a HEPA filter. The IQAir HealthPro Plus may be able to provide relief as well, eliminating allergens from up to 900 square feet of space. Its HyperHEPA filter can remove ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is not only ideal for allergy sufferers, but for individuals suffering from respiratory ailments as well.
