Air, the substance of life

Everyone should be concerned about the air around us since air pollutants can cause a variety of health problems and are especially harmful to young children, old folks and those with pre-existing respiratory conditions. The importance of air quality is obvious since we take in approximately 26,000 breaths, which is equivalent to about 800 oxygen tanks every day.
