When Do You Have Air Quality and Health Problems?

When’s the worst time for air quality? What season is pollution at its poorest?

Or perhaps summer with the ozone sticking around from high heat. Maybe it’s spring with all of the pollen, dust, and other allergens getting blown around.

In the end, it depends on where you and your family live, but air quality issues are becoming more common all year round. What’s goin’ on?


New research suggests that plants are a big part of air pollution when it’s really hot outside. Don’t we want trees and plants to clean the air. It’s pretty surprising that during heat waves plants emit more chemicals that react and form ozone.

Of course there are lots of other sources for poor air quality like food choices since every action has a cost. And cities like Salt Lake City, Utah, are taking steps to improve urban air quality. This includes better transportation alternatives, like electric or natural gas, and switching refineries to different fuels.

According to this MIT study, air pollution in China causes thousands of death every day, millions per year.

Poor air quality contributes to an early death from things like cancers and heart, lung, and stroke disorders.

A lot of the fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ozone (O3) in our lungs is due to transportation vehicles and exhausts.


Is air quality worse than it’s been in previous years, or are we just more aware of it now?

Environmental protection agencies are issuing more air quality alerts all over the US.

So now what can we, YOU and I, do about it?

With today’s technologies like Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) sensors, it’s easier and more cost-effective to measure our environment than ever before.

And this means less toxins and safer environments for all of us. Do you want better health for you and your family?

Does Poor Air Quality Hurt You and Your Family’s Health? Does Air Pollution Cause Alzheimer’s Disease

Does Bad Air Quality Cause Health Problems like Alzheimer’s Disease?

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!
