  • Fighting fall allergies

    Summer is almost over, and as fall approaches, many allergy-sufferers are feeling the symptoms. Many regions across the United States have been hit with heavier rainfall at the end of summer, leading to increased weed growth. This could be bad news for allergy-sufferers.

    Michigan's Grand Rapids Press recently reported that ragweed pollen is expected to linger up to a month longer than it has in years past. This is largely due to global warming. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology estimates that about 36 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies, including those from ragweed pollen.

    Though you can't control global warming and outdoor allergies, you can change how they affect your home. Purchasing an air purifier from a reputable vendor like Fresh Air Pro is the best option to keep your home as allergen-free as possible. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the best purifiers on the market. It uses advanced micro and nano-particle filter technologies to remove over 99 percent of all particulate air pollutants, including common allergens.

    This fall, take control of your allergies with purifiers from Fresh Air Pro.

  • Vendors finding difficulty selling cigarettes with warning labels

    Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration pushed legislation that now forces tobacco manufacturers to list explicit health warnings on cigarette packs. However, not everyone is pleased with the development - especially those who still smoke.

    Many Americans choose to smoke cigarettes, and feel that their rights are being taken away by new legislation. For vendors attempting to sell cigarettes, the warning labels pose a problem as well, according to The Sun Herald.

    "It's another form of Big Daddy trying to tell people what to do," Frank Williams, an owner of three tobacco stores, told the news source. "They're just trying to tell people how to live their life."

    Several communities are instituting bans on smoking in public areas as well. Secondhand smoke can cause negative health effects similar to those seen in cigarette users.

    Many people use an air purifier with a HEPA filter to cope around smokers. This can remove the toxins from the cigarettes from the atmosphere.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Air Purifier is growing in popularity among those who want to avoid secondhand smoke as well. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate irritating particles in up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Ragweed begins to thrive in Michigan after heavy rains

    Although the worst of pollen season might be over, allergy sufferers still have another concern looming over the horizon: ragweed. This irritant is known to cause just as much misery to people as pollen, and it can be worsened by climate conditions on an annual basis.

    Recently, Michigan went from drought-like conditions to being drenched with rain, according to MLive.com. In July, the region received almost seven inches of rain, which is almost four inches above the average. As a result, plants have been blooming and releasing those pesky spores that cause many allergy sufferers misery.

    Each ragweed plant can produce up to 1 billion grains of allergens, making it one of the toughest plants to handle throughout the year. However, allergy sufferers are finding new ways to combat their systems as the seasons change.

    An air purifier is one way that many individuals choose to fight allergy patients. A HEPA filter can remove allergens from the atmosphere, making it easier to breathe.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one system that many people turn to for relief. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. The IQAir HealthPro Plus may also reduce the chances of airborne illnesses by removing bacteria from the air.

  • Maine to become first state to ban smoking in rental properties

    Although it's a renowned fact that smoking can cause a number of serious health complications, many people tend to overlook the effects of secondhand smoke. When inhaled, the chemicals in cigarettes can cause similar ailments to those seen in smokers, such as cancer.

    In an effort to reduce the levels of secondhand smoke that is inhaled across Maine, the state will become the first in the nation to ban smoking in apartments. Beginning in 2012, Maine will take up a policy that prohibits people from smoking in rental properties, according to the Village Soup.

    "We know that in Maine over 75 percent of tenants surveyed want to live in smoke-free housing. Our goal is to have the supply of smoke-free housing meet that demand," Nancy Laite, Healthy Maine Program Specialist, told the news source.

    However, not all regions of the country are as active in protecting tenants as Maine. An air purifier can help clear the air in an apartment where an individual is forced to live around smokers.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Air Purifier can be especially effective in helping tenants breathe easier. It has a HyperHEPA filter that can remove toxins from cigarette smoke from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Texas school group fights secondhand smoke exposure

    Public smoking is not uncommon, but it is especially prominent on college campuses. Oftentimes, schools have little regulations in place to prohibit smoking. In turn, secondhand smoke can cause a number of health complications for those who are regularly around cigarette users.

    Recently, one student group banded together in an effort to reduce public smoking, according to the Daily Texan Online. The Texas Public Health organization released a list of regulations that are targeted at smokers around campus. The goal was to encourage cigarette users to abide by these rules to prevent others from having to inhale secondhand smoke.

    "I don't feel it's too much to ask that smokers make the effort to ensure they're not exposing others in their environment to secondhand smoke," Thomas Haviland, a group member, told the news source. "We feel that it would be malpractice for us to not at least recommend options that could help prevent that."

    Some people turn to air purifiers to rid secondhand smoke from the atmosphere. A HEPA filter can remove some of the toxins associated with cigarettes.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Air Purifier has a HyperHEPA filter that can eliminate toxins from up to 900 square feet of space. This can be especially beneficial to those who suffer from respiratory ailments such as asthma.

  • Flu vaccine being released to the public before autumn

    Many people still have summer on their mind, but with fall right around the corner, it's never too soon to be thinking about the cooler weather - specifically, the germs that come with the changing of the seasons.

    Without the proper precautionary measures, individuals can find themselves sick in bed as the weather changes as the flu becomes more widespread. In an effort to make sure as many people are vaccinated against common viruses as possible, Walgreens recently announced that it is offering its seasonal flu shot as of this month, according to the Associated Press.

    Autumn may still seem like some time away, but medical experts are advocating for vaccinations after the 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak that sent many to the hospital. This year's flu shot can offer protection against the H1N1 flu, as well as the influenza B virus.

    Individuals who want to breathe easier at home can also consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can help remove bacteria from the atmosphere.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one system that can be beneficial as well. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate bacteria from the air and possibly reduce the chance of developing an illness.

    Recently, the town board in Colden, New York, adopted a new policy to ban smoking on public athletic grounds. These places are often where kids of all ages play and may be susceptible to inhaling secondhand smoke.

  • Ozone alert issued for Fort Collins, Colorado

    It isn't uncommon for ozone alerts to be issued during the summer months when the weather is warm and pollution stays at ground-level. However, these warnings are not only to acknowledge the high levels of pollution in the hair - they are to prevent individuals from breathing in the toxins during the alert as well.

    Recently, an ozone alert was issued for Fort Collins in Colorado due to the increased levels of contaminants in the air, according to The Coloradoan. Warm temperatures and light winds played a role in keeping the pollution around where it could be inhaled and pose a threat to the public.

    During ozone alerts, individuals are encouraged to stay indoors until the warning has been lifted. The pollution in the air can cause breathing complications for the elderly, small children and those who have respiratory ailments.

    Individuals who want to remove contaminants from the atmosphere in their homes may want to purchase the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This air purifier contains a HyperHEPA filter that can eliminate irritants in up to 900 square feets of space.

  • SAHA bans smoking in public areas

    Most people know that smoking can cause cancer and a number of other health complications. However, not everyone acknowledges the similar damage that secondhand smoke can cause when inhaled on a regular basis.

    To prevent constant exposure to secondhand smoke and the toxins from cigarettes, the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) recently announced that it will be banning smoking at 70 public sites. The goal is to push more people to stop smoking while improving the health of local residents, according to My San Antonio. Approximately 15,800 who live in the area will be affected by the legislation.

    "It's our responsibility to provide a living environment that's healthy, safe and comfortable and, frankly, your neighbor's smoke can often impair that," Melanie Villalobos, a spokeswoman for SAHA, told the news source.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory ailments or just want to breathe easier might want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can help remove chemicals from the atmosphere.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier has a HyperHEPA filter that can eliminate cigarette smoke toxins from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Air purifiers may benefit children living with smokers

    It can be an uphill battle for individuals to quit smoking, even if they have their child's best interest at heart. In turn, kids may show signs of suffering from secondhand smoke, which can cause a number of health complications.

    Recently, researchers examined the effects that smoking has on children, according to ConsumerReports.org. The study, which was published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, showed that children with asthma may suffer from secondhand smoke more than those who do not have the condition. However, an air purifier can reduce asthmatic symptoms in a household.

    Approximately 21 million children are regularly exposed to secondhand smoke in their own homes in the U.S. When inhaled, secondhand smoke can increase the chances of health complications, including cancer.

    An air purifier can remove toxic chemicals from secondhand smoke through a HEPA filter. This can make it easier to breathe for children who are suffering from asthma.
