Air Pollution - Asthma
April 24th, 2020
50th anniversary of Earth Day just passed with a whimper as COVID dominates everything. It is unfortunate as the air, the water and the food that we expose ourselves to makes for the delta in disease risk. We all want clean air, water and food. We need to fight for it. We need to press congress and our local leaders to keep us safe from pollution.
Last week (if you missed it - below) we discussed air pollution and disease related to COVID19. I was recently given another interesting article related to asthma and pollution showing massive decreases in hospitalizations and medicine use when sulphur dioxide is reduced in the air from coal burning plants by installing scrubbers.
