What do you think? Surprisingly, this article details how a 10 year study tells you the link between Alzheimer’s Disease, Air Quality, and Pollution.

The results show that when you breathe polluted air you increase your likelihood of developing dementia. Poor air quality and particulates can be caused by a variety of sources like exhaust from vehicles, buses, cars, and trucks.

You might have figured that air quality and pollution negatively affect your health. Particularly when it comes to health risks and problems like lung disease, asthma, and cardiovascular disease. Now you’re seeing how smog and poor air quality also hurt your brain.


Where in your world are the best and worst countries for air quality indexes and pollution?

When it comes to air quality, how does the U.S. stack up vs. China, the European Union and other countries around the world?

You probably guessed that China has some of the worst issues with air quality indexes. You’d be right as far as this story says. The article lists the good, the bad, and the ugly on air quality in countries around the world. Results are included based on findings by organizations like the World Health Organization / WHO.

What will you do about air quality and pollution?

air-quality-monitoring-3d-pollution-map-mapping-pm2-5-ozone-nitrous-oxides-sulfur-dioxide-so2-no2-nox-o3-pm1-pm10All of this information looks pretty grim for you and me. However, we’re also lucky that right now, at this instant, it’s easier than ever to remotely monitor air quality!

With Industrial Internet of Things / IoT Sensors and Devices there are rapidly deployable, effective Air Quality Monitoring Systems like these.

You, your community, teams, and organization can effectively monitor anything, anywhere, with Tools.Valarm.net. Whether you  need to monitor Ozone / O3, Sulfur Dioxide / SO2, Nitrous Oxides / NOx, Metal Oxides, Nitrogen Dioxide / NO2, Hydrogen Sulfide / H2S, Dust, Particulates and Particulate Matter Like PM1, PM2.5, PM10. Or anything else!


Questions?

I’m happy to talk with you and your teams about monitoring anything your organization needs to monitor. Whether it’s air quality, pollution, water, fluids, water quality, tanks, water usage, industrial fleet vehicles, trucks, trailers, equipment, and/or any other assets.

 

Your World’s Air Quality & Water Pollution – Toxic Algae + SO2 / Sulfur Dioxide


How’s your air quality?

remotemonitoringairqualityboxagriculturesoilmoistureYears ago the EPA set safety levels for the airborne pollutant SO2 – Sulfur Dioxide.

So you might think that you and your family’s air complies with the standard and you’re not breathing gnarly, toxic gases, pollutants, and chemicals every day. Not so easy.

In Missouri there are coal power plants nearby the houses of citizens. This article explains how it may still be a number of years before sulfur dioxide monitoring stations are deployed around the Labadie Energy Center.

SO2 / Sulfur Dioxide isn’t the only airborne contaminant that’s harmful to your health. Ozone / O3, Nitrous Oxides / NOx,  Nitrogen Dioxide / NO2, and Particulate Matter like Dust and PM2.5 are known to cause damage and reduce your lifespan.

If you want to take action, and are driven to make a difference, I believe that you can solve just about any issue. Today you’ve got EPA-grade, quality, cost-effective, cloud-based Industrial IoT gateways and Internet of Things devices and sensors.

For a fraction of the cost you can deploy your own air quality monitoring network to be confident and aware of your health, safety, and security. What’s to stop you from doing something about your environment

Please don’t hesitate to chat with me if you’ve got any questions or need help deploying air quality, water, or any other remote monitoring sensor networks.


Now how about your water?

industrial-iot-water-monitoring-air-quality-pollution-remote-internet-of-things-sensor-devicesHopefully you don’t have any toxic algae blooming near your home! How does that happen like in Lake Okeechobee in Florida? Toxic algae can happen anywhere. Especially where there are tons of nitrogen, phosphorous, and fertilization runoff entering local lakes.

Warm temperatures and other environmental factors can also contribute to cyanobacteria / blue-green algae seeming to take over and infest your coastlines and/or waterways. As this article explains, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers discharged a large volume of an algae infested lake’s water.

This nutrient-polluted water was discharged in order to prevent flooding. However, you can see it had other effects as well. Our earth requires such a precious balance. It’s challenging when you try to fix 1 issue and another one results.

You And Your Family’s Health and Death Caused By Pollution And Bad Air Quality In Your Community?

Air Quality Exposures, Dangers, & Risks

Could you and your family be at risk for early death due to air quality?

air-quality-monitor-pollution-pm2-5-gases-ozone-nitrogen-oxides-airquality-monitoranythinganywhere-comA recent European Environment Agency, EEA, stated that Italy and the United Kingdom have the highest estimated early deaths caused by poor air quality.

Your health is harmed by air quality factors like:

  • NO2 – Nitrogen dioxide
  • PM2.5 – Fine particulate matter
  • O3 – Ozone

The EEA report analyzed air quality information over a 14 year period, from the year 2000 – 2014.

Harmful things like NOaffect your respiratory system. Bad air quality hurts your health and cuts your life short.

Over 7 million people die every year as a result of illnesses from pollution.

See the full story here on the recent EU air quality study. You’ll be surprised at how damaging your environment can be if you’re in an area with bad air quality.


What will you do about it?

Each day air quality will become a bigger focus for communities around the world. Here are a few ideas for you to help you, your family, and your community’s health:
