25Air pollution refers to any biological, physical, or chemical particle in the air that should not be there. Pollutants come from many human activities such as factories, power plants, dry cleaners, cars, trains, airplanes, and buses. They can also come from environmental sources like wild fires, volcanic eruptions, and windblown dust. Air quality standards tell us if the current level of pollution in the air is likely to be harmful to our health.
27On average, adults breathe over 3,000 gallons of air each day. The enormous amount of air we breathe means that our lungs and airways are continuously exposed to any contaminants or unwanted pollutants in that air. When pollution is bad, it can irritate your eyes, nose, and throat; cause shortness of breath, and aggravate asthma and other respiratory conditions. Poor air quality also affects your heart and cardiovascular system, increasing the chances of heart attack and stroke.
29National air quality has improved since the 1990's, but many challenges remain in protecting our health from common air contaminants. Two air pollutants of particular concern are ozone and PM2.5.
