We have four ashmatic in the family. It is not something to be taken lightly. In fact, that is how my sister had decided to purchase an air-condioner for her daughter's room. But of course, nobody can escape the air pollution outside the house because we all need to go out for some purpose or another.
Although asthma can be hereditary, but we can do something to help them from suffering more. One very easy factor is to keep the air clean. The practice of Dust Control or dust abatement has become more important to more and more asthma sufferers. It is reported that nearly 23 million Americans and a staggering 300 million people in the world suffers from asthma, and obviously, one of the causes is the never-ending infrastractures and roads constructions around us. The good thing is that, just recently, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued guidelines for dust control dust abatement , and PM10 regulations. With the advent of the changes from TSP monitors in 1987, to monitoring networks that are now able to measure down to Particulate Matter of 10 Microns in diameter or smaller, they were able to do as much as they can to economically monitor and control Particulate Matter of 10 Microns in diameter or smaller otherwise know as PM10. These changes make it a top priority for many local and state governing bodies to take control of dust pollution. It is nice to know that these effort to control dust will eventually help millions of asthma sufferers and for the future generations as well.
Here are some recommended tip for asthma sufferers from the Dust Control Inc.
