  • Alternative medicine and air purifiers may provide allergy relief

    Recently, the Teton Valley News reported that many people are still sniffling and sneezing from lingering pollen across Indiana.

    Although it seems difficult to overcome the symptoms associated with allergies, especially when obligations exist outdoors, there are a few ways that individuals can combat the itchy eyes and runny noses.

    A saline nasal spray is one of the most popular ways that allergy sufferers are coping with symptoms. This type of spray not only clears the nasal passages, but it can also prevent potential infections associated with allergies.

    Neti pots have also become a mainstream form of treatment for those who do not want to take medicine. Streaming water through the nasal passage can also remove irritants from sinuses.

    Individuals who suffer from allergies throughout the year may want to consider using an air purifier as well. The IQ HealthPro Plus is a system that can help those with allergies and respiratory ailments.

    The air purifier contains a HyperHEPA filter that can trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. It is also designed to remove allergens from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • 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."

    An air purifier can make it safer to breathe in an area with secondhand smoke. A HEPA filter can remove harmful chemicals from the air.

    The IQ Air GC MultiGas Air Purifier is ideal for those who want to breathe easier. It can remove cigarette toxins from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Teddy bears handed out to promote less smoking around kids

    Although most people are aware of the dangers that come with smoking, many fail to consider the repercussions of using cigarettes around children. Napa Valley residents are now banding together in an effort to educate people further on the negative health effects of secondhand smoke.

    Recently, members of the Community Action Napa Valley (CANV) Tobacco Education and Quit Smoking Program created a plan to distribute 500 white teddy bears at child care centers, according to the Napa Valley Register. The stuffed animals are wearing red T-shirts that say, "My bear loves clean air."

    "It's a wonderful time to give families something that's fun," Peggy Klick, director of the CANV Tobacco Education and Quit Smoking Program, told the news source. "If a child is putting this bear on his or her bed, it's a message to the parents, if they smoke, to at least take their smoking outside."

    Air purifiers can remove toxins from the atmosphere that come from cigarette smoke through a HEPA filter. The IQ Air GC MultiGas Air Purifier can eliminate chemicals from up to 900 square feet of space.

    The system has a filter that can remove toxins from the atmosphere, such as methylamine, methyl vinyl ketone and methyl sulfid, which can result in negative health complications when inhaled over time.

  • 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."

    Individuals who suffer from allergies on a regular basis may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove allergens from the atmosphere and make it easier to breathe.

    The IQ HealthPro Plus can eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. Pollen, pet dander and smog can all be removed from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • 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.

    Those who want to breathe easier may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier can remove cigarette smoke chemicals such as methylamine, methyl vinyl ketone and methyl sulfid from the atmosphere.

  • 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. The purifier can remove irritating toxins from secondhand smoke, such as methylamine, methyl vinyl ketone and methyl sulfid. It can also clear up to 900 square feet of space with its HyperHEPA filter for a cleaner atmosphere.

    The IQ Air GC MultiGas Air Purifier is ideal for individuals who live with smokers, suffer from seasonal allergies or just want to breathe easier.

  • 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.

  • Oregon residents finally feeling relief from seasonal allergies

    Allergy season has been worse than usual this year for many people across the U.S. due to dry spells and warm weather. Eugene, Oregon, is one region that especially suffered as a result of arid weather. However, a few recent storms have finally brought relief to residents in the area, according to The Register-Guard.

    Eugene saw its highest pollen count this season with 532 grains of grass pollen per square inch, which meant plenty of sneezing and itchy eyes for allergy sufferers. Kraig Jacobson, medical director of the Allergy and Asthma Research Group, which is the research arm of Oregon Allergy Associates in Eugene, told the news source that the rain will help allergy sufferers finally find relief.

    Individuals who suffer from seasonal allergies may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove irritating particles from the atmosphere that cause coughing, sneezing and sniffling.

  • Secondhand smoke may create learning disabilities in children

    It can be tough for individuals to quit smoking, even after they have children. However, new research may give parents another reason to try to kick the habit: secondhand smoke may result in learning disabilities in kids.

    A study recently published in the Pediatrics journal shows that children who are around smokers on a regular basis have an increased risk of developing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and conduct issues.

    ''We analyzed the relationship between parents who reported smoking in the home as opposed to those not smoking in the home and these disorders," researcher Hillel Alpert told WebMD.

    Alpert and colleagues were able to determine that children who grew up around smokers had a 50 percent increased risk of developing these learning complications.

    If you have a child at home, you might want to invest in the IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier - a system that can help remove toxins from cigarette smoke from up to 900 square feet. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to eliminate secondhand smoke chemicals, including ethanol, hydrogen chloride and ozone. The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier is ideal for individuals living with respiratory conditions as well, such as as asthma.

  • Smoke shops allowing consumers to roll cigarettes

    The rising prices of cigarettes have deterred many smokers from continuing with their bad habit, but shop owners are beginning to ease the irritation with a new proposal: let smokers create cigarettes of their own.

    Recently, a slew of shops opened in the Pittsburgh area to allow smokers the opportunity to roll their own cigarettes, according to Pittsburgh Live. For smokers who used to spend approximately $70 on a carton of cigarettes, such as David Ogilbie, the cheaper option is growing in popularity.

    "I used to smoke Marlboro," Ogilbie told the news source. "These taste better, plus I don't have to light them 50,000 times."

    Cigarettes still remain a leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., and second-hand smoke can be just as dangerous for those who are in the presence of a cigarette user.

    Individuals who want to breathe easier may want to purchase an air purifier. The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier can be beneficial to those who suffer from respiratory ailments or live with a smoker.

    The IQAir GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier can eliminate chemicals from cigarette smoke from the air, such as methanol, isopropanol and isoprene.
