2) While we can not control the quality of air outside of our homes and work places, we can improve air quality by using indoor plants. In 1973 NASA commissioned a study to find a way to maintain air quality inside confined spaces such as space pods. Their researchers discovered that indoor plants effectively reduce toxic contaminants in the air. To view the results, go here.
2) Avoid outdoor exposure to airborne pollutants by becoming aware of Florida’s air currents. The wind mapping technology available today is extremely useful in reducing risk of exposure. View Here
