Breathing Problems

Many chemicals that can be breathed in, such as ozone or particulate matter (including pollen) may cause a variety of breathing problems in both healthy people and people with illnesses, such as allergies, asthma, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Health symptoms may include coughing, chest discomfort, reduced lung function, shortness of breath, or irritation of eyes, nose, and throat. These symptoms vary depending on the chemical breathed in.
We track breathing problems that include asthma and allergies.
