Air pollution and the public health

Posted by admin on February 6, 2009

Air pollution is all around us, and effects us daily. If we are aware of it or not, we are breathing polluted air and hurting ourselves. What can we do? to stop breathing? to move to Alaska where the air is the cleaner in the world? Maybe. But better if we search for ways to save the environment.

The levels of pollution is monitored by the government and divided to some levels. In most western countries and big cities the air is not so clean but ok for living. Only people with problems such as lung diseases, bronchitis or some kind of asthma, may be sensitive to the pollution. Same with young babies and elders. For the most of the public, the air pollution is harmless for the short term, see for yourself, we are alive. But bad for the long term. For them and for yourself, look for better ways to reduce the air pollution and look how you can give more to save the environment!

Air pollution levels:

Levels 1-3: You cant tell there is any pollution, the skies are blue and clean.

Levels 4-6: Minimum air pollution, can be noticed by sensative people.

Levels 7-9: Pollution is effecting the publc, you feel it in your breath. Try not to stay outdoors too much.

Levels 10: The highest of pollution, sensitive people will need medical treatment. For the most of the public, it effects the breathing and the total feeling.
