(HealthDay News) -- Poor outdoor air quality may spur breathing problems among people with asthma or other respiratory issues.
The American Lung Association advises:
Be aware of the air quality and pollution levels each day in your area.
Exercise indoors when air quality is poor, and restrict outdoor playtime for children.
Cut down on driving by carpooling, biking or walking to work.
Avoid burning wood or trash, and use battery-powered or electric lawn machinery instead of gas-powered devices.
Keep indoor air quality healthier by prohibiting smoking at home.
