The Air That We Breathe

The haze readings in certain areas have improved up north but according to my son who is residing down south, the API reading has rise up to 300 few days ago.  Schools for both primary and secondary were compelled to close for the day.  Due to the haze, my son has been coughing for the past few days and I have cautioned him to wear a mask and drink more water, besides that, if necessary, try to stay indoors as much as possible.  Hope the haze will be blown away soon... it is really hazardous to our health.

Just a moment ago, I read a website article on Vapor Intrusion, something linking to the air that we breathe.  As written here, accidental releases of volatile chemicals, such as solvents or other petroleum products, that leaks into the subsurface could result not only in the soil but the groundwater would be contaminated as well.  Once the soil is contaminated, the soil gas moves toward and into houses and buildings, thus it is known as Vapor Intrusion.  Lately it is said to have given much assessment and mitigation of the VI exposure pathway, it has become the most highly researched and regulated field in the environmental industry.  It is also written that the potential that building occupants may have unknowingly be breathing potentially harmful levels of impacted air due to the nearby environmental releases, it prompted much action from the state and federal agencies to impose conservative regulations and guidelines to the affected area.  This action needs some expertise advice from the Vapor Intrusion Consultants, they are the best people to be sought out specifically to evaluate the VI exposure pathway.  They resolves challenging environmental problems involving political, technical, regulatory, legal and financial issues with both business-oriented strategies for property owners, businesses and municipalities.

After reading all that, I now have a bigger image of how important the environmental air is to us.  We need healthy air to keep our body system free from more toxic embedded in our body.  If each of us play an important part to our surrounding area by keeping it clean, we can be "wealthy" in one way already, after all, as the saying goes, "Health is Wealth."
