Air Quality Exposures, Dangers, & Risks
Could you and your family be at risk for early death due to 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 NO2 affect 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:
