In the summer, said Thurston, the air pollution levels are the highest later in the day — so you should do your workouts in the morning. In the winter, the pollution is highest in the morning because it builds up overnight — so work out later in the day. It’s also important to avoid busy traffic routes and rush hour times if possible.

Air pollution levels tend to be highest near midday or in the afternoon, so try to avoid outdoor exercise during these times of the day. Exercising during rush hour can expose you to higher amounts of pollution. If you can, avoid exercising near roadways where there is heavy traffic. So if you have a choice for working out, biking or walking in a less polluted area, however, such as a park or a quieter side street, that might be. Air quality measurement, something few people consider before heading out the door, is now getting the Google treatment.

More than 115 million people nationwide still live in counties with pollution levels. In any home, people can safeguard against indoor air pollution by increasing ventilation, testing for radon gas, using air purifiers, running kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans, and avoiding smoking.

Air pollution can have a serious heath impact on humans. If you are exposed to very high levels of air pollutants, you may experience irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, wheezing, coughing and breathing problems and have a greater risk of heart attacks. Air pollution can also exacerbate existing lung and heart conditions, like asthma.

Air pollution has several harmful effects on both the environment and human health. A common example of the negative effects of air pollution on the environment is in the form of acid rain. Many upper respiratory diseases such as asthma are exacerbated by air pollution.

Air pollution is getting worse, and data show more people are dying. Eroding air quality was linked to 10,000 additional U.S. deaths over a two-year period. By. Christopher Ingraham.

Air Quality Index (AQI) Ever hear your local weather forecaster say that tomorrow will be a “code orange” day for air pollution? That’s the Air Quality Index at work. The Air Quality Index, or AQI, is the system used to warn the public when air pollution levels.
