The Effects of Particulate Matter on the Health of Americans
Incidence Rates for Allergies and Asthma due to Air Pollution
quality of outdoor and indoor air available for consumption
in the United States is reducing due to climatic changes.
the modified weather patterns have contributed to the
redistribution and concentration of outdoor air pollutants
including ground-level ozone and fine particulate matters.
is link between changes in outdoor air quality and the
indoor aspect since pollutants have capacity to enter homes.
poor outdoor and indoor air quality has adverse impact
on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems of humans.
Evidence of Climate Changes in the
Rising atmospheric temperature
Increased concentrations of carbon dioxide
Altered precipitations due to occurrence of
natural disasters .
High concentration of ground-level ozone
Impact of Climate Changes on Air
The changes in meteorological conditions would
alter air temperatures and the amount of vertical
mixtures in the atmosphere.
High concentration of ozone gas in the air would
form cloud cover and precipitation that would
impair visibility thereby reducing external

increase in the incidence rate of acute
respiratory tract infections that would affect
workers productivity, increase cost of medical bills,
and lost school days.
