American Lung Association Releases 2016 State of the Air Report

For 17 years, the American Lung Association has analyzed data from official air quality monitors to compile the State of the Air report. As stated on Lung.org, “The more you learn about the air you breathe, the more you can protect your health and take steps to make our air cleaner and healthier.” This year many top cities received failing grades. Here are the top 10 cities with the worst ozone or particle pollution:

1. Los Angeles-Long Beach, California
2. Bakersfield, California
3. Visalia-Porterville-Hanford, California
4. Fresno-Madera, California
5. Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Arizona
6. Sacramento-Roseville, California
7. Modesto-Merced, California
8. Denver-Aurora, Colorado
9. Las Vegas-Henderson, Nevada
10. Fort Collins, Colorado

Air Pollution Becomes an Epidemic in the United States

The findings reveal more than 50% of Americans live in areas with unhealthy levels of particle pollution, tiny solid and liquid particles floating around the air we breath, or ozone pollution, harmful gasses that react to sunlight. While there is little we can do to protect ourselves from the “fresh air” outside, you can help your customers “clean the air” with indoor air quality solutions.  Browse now >>
