  • Strong winds carrying pollen, wildfire smoke across the country

    Many people look forward to dry, warm weather after months of winter blizzards, but it can be quite another story for allergy-sufferers. In combination with the wildfires that have ignited in the southwest region of the country, allergy season has been nothing but misery for many Americans, according to NBC affiliate 9News.

    Recently, allergist Rohit Katial from National Jewish Health told the news source that pollen has been especially prevalent for this time of year.

    Grass and tree pollen have been named the culprits, and dry weather across several areas of the country have caused the allergens to linger for longer than usual. Wildfires in the southwest region of the U.S. have also created a large amount of smoke and air pollution, which has been carried across the country by strong winds.

    Air purifiers have been helpful to individuals suffering from allergies, removing pollen from the atmosphere through HEPA filter technology.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus can be a viable solution for those looking for year-round relief. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • California legislators attempt to cut reliance on cars

    California has state laws in place that require the region to lower greenhouse gases to 1990 levels within the next nine years, but lawmakers fear that this will not happen without a more forceful effort. In an attempt to reduce carbon emissions sooner than later, legislators are turning to a primary cause of air pollution: cars.

    Air Resources board chair, Mary Nichols, says that automobiles create 40 percent of the pollution in California, according to Reuters. Reducing the number of cars on the road can help the state reach its goal of lowering carbon emissions by 2020.

    "Most important for Californians, from an air quality perspective, is still the cars," Nichols told the news source. "After all these years, it's still the cars."

    Individuals who want to breathe easier in their own homes can purchase an air purifier to find relief from the pollution. HEPA filters can remove irritants from the atmosphere such as dust, cigarette smoke and pollen.

  • Arizona wildfire continues to create air pollution

    Wildfires in Arizona have recently burned more than 600 square miles with no signs of stopping, and new screen shots released from NASA now show that the smoke can be seen from outer space. This has caused concern for health experts, who say that the wildfires may be creating a dangerous amount of air pollution, according to the International Business Times.

    The plumes have resulted in large levels of nitrogen dioxide, which can be hazardous when inhaled over time. The wildfire, which has been titled the Wallow Wildfire, is approaching the current record of 732 square miles burnt in 2002 by the Rodeo-Chediski Fire. Thus far, firefighters have only been able to control approximately 5 percent of the blaze.

  • Exposure to pets in childhood may not result in allergies

    Many people suffer from pet dander allergies, and it was once thought that exposure to animals at a young age caused the life-long reaction. However, new research suggests otherwise and may have parents rethinking how they expose their kids to pets.

    A study recently published in the journal Clinical and Experimental Allergy showed that exposure to cats and dogs does not raise a child's chances of becoming allergic to pets. Researchers followed 565 people from infancy to 18 years of age to examine how they reacted to pets in their households.

    At the end of the study, experts collected blood samples in the participants to measure the levels of antibodies in their systems. They discovered that being exposed to these pets within the first year of life may reduce the risk of developing certain allergies.

    Individuals who suffer from allergic reactions as a result of pet dander are encouraged to vacuum regularly. Utilizing an air purifier with a HEPA filter can also be beneficial at home.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter capable of removing pet dander from up to 900 square feet of space. The air purifier can eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size to make it easier to breathe.

  • Bring fresh air into your home this summer

    Now that summer has started to roll in, the warm weather is trapping more irritating particles in the air, making it difficult for allergy and asthma-sufferers to breathe. However, there are a number of ways to improve the air quality in your home, according to ABC News.

    First, remember to clean the filter in your air conditioner before installing it in your window this summer. After sitting in an attic all winter, the air conditioner can trap dust and blow it into your lungs if the filter is not cleaned.

    Finally, invest in an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove particles from the air that can cause allergic reactions and irritation in individuals with respiratory illnesses.
