The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released a report that indicates that the air quality in New England has improved in 2011. The region suffered only 16 days of unhealthy ozone levels, down from 28 in 2010, reports the Boston Herald. The preliminary data shows that it was the reduction of sweltering heat the region experienced that was responsible for the improved air quality.
While it's important to be aware of the air quality outdoors, oftentimes it's indoor air quality that causes the most damage. The majority of Americans spend most of their days indoors, whether at the office, in the home or in various other locations. According to the EPA, indoor air quality can be affected by biological pollutants, carbon monoxide, cleaning materials, emissions from fireplaces and heaters, pesticides, second-hand tobacco smoke and a host of other toxins.
These contaminants can cause symptoms such as irritation to the eyes, nose and throat, dizziness, fatigue and weakness, as well as more serious long-term illnesses like cancer, heart and respiratory diseases. In order to protect yourself, you should make sure the air you're breathing is safe by investing in a professional-grade air purifier.
