Breathe Clean Air’s new 1/4 page ad highlights the health impacts of wood smoke pollution (see p. 38 of the Comox Valley Record, January 9, 2020).
The eye-catching ad cites the 2017 study which showed a 19% increased risk of heart attacks in seniors when wood smoke pollution increased. The study included monitoring and health data from the Comox Valley.
The ad also points to wood smoke’s impacts on children’s health. To learn more about the range of potential health impacts, please visit our Health Impacts page.
