Fairbanks listed among most polluted areas

Many cities across the nation experienced more days when ground-level ozone, also known as "smog", reached risky levels, including most of the cities with the worst ozone problems.

Household air pollution can be a major source of impact in outdoor air: with indoor pollution emitted to the outdoor air the largest cause of health impacts from among all sources in India, contributing to 1 in 4 air pollution related deaths India, and almost 1 in 5 such deaths in China. "Continued progress to cleaner air remains crucial to reduce the risk of premature death, asthma attacks and lung cancer".

Particle pollution is also know as soot pollution.

Pittsburgh is the tenth worst region in the country for short-term particle pollution, according to a new report.

Camden and Chester were among the nation's cleanest counties for particle pollution, with both earning an A.

For 19 years, the American Lung Association has analyzed data from official air quality monitors to compile the "State of the Air" report.

This combined exposure led to one in four air pollution deaths in India, and almost one in five in China, the report finds.

"We see that is much, much better it maintained some of its lowest year-round levels in this report", Fletcher said.

"The State of the Air 2018 shows that too many people in the United States live where the air is unhealthy for them to breathe", the report says.

It was a different story for ozone pollution. Increased heat, changes in climate patterns, drought and wildfires contributed to the high number of days with unhealthy particulate matter.

As for cities, the Grand Rapids metro area tied for 34th most polluted in the nation. "Ozone can even shorten life itself", Stewart said.

Charlotte is the 41st most polluted city in the nation for ozone.

Particle pollution in S.C.

. And the poor grades in La Plata County, Colorado reflect that.

Particle pollution, also known as soot, comes largely from diesel engines and wood-burning stoves and fireplaces. New Orleans saw slightly worse levels of year-round particle pollution than Baton Rouge.

The report credits climate change for bringing warmer temperatures, making air pollution harder to clean up.

This is the first year since the 2014 report, that grades are available for Knoxville and other Tennessee cities due to enough quality data. Charleston, North Charleston, Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson reported significantly more unhealthy air days. Only six of the 25 most polluted cities are located east of the Mississippi River: New York City, Philadelphia, Hartford, Connecticut, Chicago, Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and Atlanta.
