  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus has a HyperHEPA filter that can eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size. It can be especially helpful for individuals living with allergies, asthma or working in urban areas with high concentrations of pollution.

    As warm weather sweeps across the nation's heartland, more cities in the region are issuing ozone alerts to keep residents safe. The Tulsa metropolitan area is the latest city to send out a warning for June 15 as a result of high levels of smog, according to ABC affiliate KTUL-TV.

    The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality announced the ozone alert in fear of high winds and warm weather carrying the air pollution across the region. Officials recommended that commuters opt for public transportation or carpooling to reduce carbon emissions.

    During ozone alerts, people are also recommended to postpone outdoor activities until later in the day. The air pollution is especially dangerous to children, the elderly and individuals with respiratory conditions.

  • Salt Lake City allergy-sufferers see no sign of relief

    Recently, individuals living with hay fever allergies in Salt Lake City have reported above-normal symptoms as a result of an extended period of rain in the area, according to the Deseret News.

    The Salt Lake City region has weathered a rainy spring, giving plants more time to grow. Now that things are drying up and the temperatures are rising, hay fever-sufferers are beginning to exhibit more reactions to the changes: sniffles, sneezes, coughs and itchy eyes.

    "Recently, it's been horrible," Lindsi Wiseman, a resident in the area, told the news source. "[My children are] getting symptoms way worse than last year. It's just been really terrible in our household."

  • 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.

    Individuals in the area who suffer from respiratory conditions or just want cleaner air to breathe may want to purchase an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove pollution from the atmosphere that can cause irritation in the lungs.

  • 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.
