American Lung Association
Suffolk received an “F” grade in the American Lung Association’s 2014 air quality report.
The American Lung Association released its 15th annual air quality report Wednesday, which found that half of Americans still live in areas where ozone or particle pollution levels make the air unhealthy to breathe.
The American Lung Association is out with its “State of the Air” survey, which grades every county in the nation on its air quality and ozone levels.
This spring, runny eyes and a stuffed up nose may not be the result of seasonal allergens.
For the 12th straight year, Suffolk County has received a failing grade from the American Lung Association for having the worst ozone pollution in New York.
The Association’s ninth annual State of Tobacco Control report evaluates whether states are doing what the group considers enough to protect people against the health problems associated with tobacco use.
