It’s difficult to find any size-able city and its surrounding area without some air pollution… Unfortunately, that’s bad for the lungs. Multiple studies report that air pollution can contribute to chronic health conditions and even cancer.
(Of course, it depends on the severity of the air pollution)
So… what can you do about it?
Here are some ideas!
Check The Forecast — Before spending a lot of time outside, check the air quality forecast for the day. This can be done easily with a Google search. Plan more time outdoors on cleaner air days.
Replace Filters Often — Replacing air filters regularly in your home is one of the easiest ways to ensure that you and your family are breathing fresh air.
Use a HEPA Filter — To make sure you’re breathing clean air while sleeping or while spending time in the house, then perhaps consider investing in a HEPA filter, which removes many different types of toxins from the air.
Move Somewhere Else — Finally, if the air pollution is bad enough, you might consider moving somewhere else.
