Clean Air Month

Whether outdoors or inside, we are constantly exposed to airborne pollutants which can have negative effects on our health. That’s why we observe Clean Air Month every May, so we can learn how poor air quality affects our everyday lives.

Clean air has a natural balance of gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, and does not contain any pollutants or allergens. Clean air has no negative impact on our health or the environment.

Polluted air, on the other hand, can be very harmful. Short-term exposure to polluted air can lead to allergy-like symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, sore throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. It can also trigger symptoms from other diseases, such as asthma. Long-term health effects are even more severe, as research has linked pollution to various heart diseases, respiratory diseases, and certain forms of cancer.

Clean Air Month has been observed every May since 1972, and is annually sponsored by the American Lung Association. The goal of Clean Air Month is to educate the people about the correlation between air quality and respiratory health, and encourage them to take positive steps to help improve air quality.
