Right now, the fire is boss
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2009
Not only a danger to the environment, the wildfires blazing across southern California and the pollution they create pose a serious health risk to those located within their wide radius. With over 200 square miles of scorched brush and 12,000 homes at risk due to the Station fire in northeast Los Angeles; there's reason for all of us to be concerned. "Right now, the fire is boss," Larry Peabody of the U.S. Forest Service told the Los Angeles Times. With over 1.3 million acres scorched in California last year and 5,749 fires already burned in 2009 as of August 14th, this is a significant, recurring health issue. Even residents who live considerable distances from fires suffers from the effects of smoke inhalation, from "eye and respiratory tract irritation to more serious disorders, including reduced lung function, bronchitis, exacerbation of asthma, and premature death." It is important for everyone to protect themselves from the harmful effects of pollution and find ways of minimizing exposure to smoke in our air.
The South Coast Air Quality Management District warns fine particles released by wildfires that can bypass the body's natural defense system and lodge in the lungs. Air filtration is a means of minimizing the irritation, coughing and wheezing that many people experience during wildfire incidents.
