    The first thing that you can do is to learn how to monitor and evaluate the amount of pollution that is in the air and the kind of risk and impact that it might have on you. When there are high levels of pollution, it is important to avoid being outside during the hottest parts of the day. Do everything that you need to do in the morning when pollution and smog is at its lowest point. It is also important to air out your home first thing in the morning and consult a doctor if you have pre-existing respiratory conditions.

    Since people spend most of their time indoors these days, indoor air pollution is a major concern. Sometimes, outdoor air may be of better quality than indoor air, especially if you use a lot of chemicals in your home. When I took my air quality course at UC Davis, there was a group project at the end and two groups did presentations on indoor air quality (my group did alternative fuel vehicles)

    One group talked about how house plants can help filter the air in your home. They also mentioned that certain air purifiers actually make your indoor air quality worse because they produce ozone, which is good in the stratosphere, but harmful for people to breathe.

    The other group talked about how cosmetics and other products can release benzene compounds and other lung irritants into your home.
