Although winter tends to get a bad rap for air pollution with it’s gray, hazy smog, summer has air pollution of its own: dangerous, invisible ozone. Steve tells us why ozone is more dangerous than particulate pollutants such as PM10 and PM2.5. Later John Yoon discusses the myAir app and how it can help you deal with air quality issues.
The myAir air quality app combines your information with the most current EPA air pollution readings from your area. Your unique height, weight, and age combine to create a specific air pollution tolerance level. These factors allow the myAir app to give you customized information about how long you can stay active and how hard you can play. myAir lets you know if you need to finish your outdoor activity early or if it’s safe to run another lap, bike another mile, or score another goal. It also tracks not just visible pollution such as PM2.5, but also the things you can’t see, like ozone.
