What is Air Quality?
As you know when you breathe in air, it’s not just 100% oxygen. There are tons of pollutants and other chemicals that we breathe in every day. However, some cities do better than others at keeping the air clean and healthy for its residents.
This can be determined by proximity to chemical plants to reducing and requiring high EV stipulations for people to drive better cars. However, you need to be sure that the air your breathing is okay.
What are the Common Types of Pollutants?
Pollen is the most common pollutant and is the biggest reason people experience seasonal disorders. With excess pollen comes stuffy noses, poor circulation, and build up of bad bacteria.
Other allergens can be anything from glass particles to decomposing materials.
Dust and Debris
You are breathing in the dust and debris of a metropolis society. Every car that is turned on, every glass that breaks, every wood that is cut, will end up in your body in a very small way.
