... Air quality awareness week continues...

This is an opportunity to learn more about air quality
and how it affects your health.

Today... we highlight the health impacts of poor air quality.

You are exposed to airborne contamination every time
you breathe polluted air. But when you exercise... work in
the yard... or do other strenuous activities that
make you breathe harder and faster... you inhale more air
and therefore more pollution into your lungs.

Exposure to high levels of ozone and particle pollution is
linked with a number of significant health problems.
Children... people with lung disease... older adults and
people with heart disease tend to be more vulnerable.
When pollution reaches high enough levels... the air can be
unhealthy for everyone... especially if you are active outdoors.
You can help protect yourself simply by changing the time
or intensity of your activities.

Use the air quality index and daily air quality forecasts
to help you determine when you need to make changes.
The a q I is a color coded scale that tells you who
needs to take steps to reduce exposure to ozone or
particle pollution.

Local air quality forecasts are available at
W W W... dot... airnow... dot gov.

That is... W W W... dot... airnow... dot gov.

Tomorrow... we will learn about tools to help you
get air quality information.
