The Dangers of Air Pollution
When it comes to air pollution, size matters. The smaller the particulates are, the more dangerous they become. Unfortunately, many car exhaust systems don’t do a good job of filtering out these tiny particulates, which means that the air inside your car can actually be more polluted than the air outside. And since children’s bodies are still developing, they’re especially susceptible to the harmful effects of air pollution. Some of the health problems that have been linked to exposure to air pollution include:
Reduced lung function
Protecting Your Children from Air Pollution
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to protect your children from the harmful effects of air pollution. One simple way is to upgrade your car’s air filter. A good air filter will help remove some of the particulates from the air inside your car. You should also avoid idling your car for long periods of time, as this will only increase the level of pollutants in the air. Finally, try to drive in areas with less traffic and better airflow whenever possible.
