Air pollution affects public health both directly and indirectly.

Directly, it causes asthma and reduces lung development. Indirectly, it damages crops that feed and clothe us, natural plants that filter air and water and stabilize soil, wilderness areas that provide recreation, and habitat for fish and animals.

Controlling air pollution benefits everyone. This website provides links to information about air pollution, new research on how ozone air pollution affects plants, and pollution-related games and information for kids.
