New Mexico Senate Hearing on Air Quality and Children’s Health (Video)

Video: During a New Mexico Hearing on Air Quality and Children’s Health, Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) questioned Dr. Donna Upson of the American Lung Association about whether air pollution contributes to breathing problems.

Upson’s response suggests that air pollution aggravates asthma and can creates respiratory health issues. Although the discussion focuses on outdoor pollutants, what it reveals about indoor air quality is vitally important. Former meth lab homes are full of toxic air particles, which is why professionals wear head-to-toe protection, which includes respirators, when they enter a home that’s been used to make meth.
