Health Tip: Pay Attention to Air Pollution
Avoid outdoors when air quality is poor

(HealthDay News) -- Polluted air can trigger a number of symptoms, especially for people with chronic health conditions such as asthma or heart disease.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says you should take these precautions when air quality is poor:

  • Check the Air Quality Index (AQI) for your area and limit time outdoors when the rating is above 100.
  • If you do have to be outdoors, do so during the early morning or after the sun sets.
  • When air quality is poor, avoid rigorous activity and heavier breathing to prevent inhaling more pollutants.
