Air quality has a direct impact on our health. Certain medical conditions including asthma, COPD and bronchitis can be triggered or worsened by poor air quality, resulting in lost activity days, hospitalization and in extreme cases death. There is also a growing awareness of radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas in some homes that can lead to lung cancer.
The Thunder Bay District Health Unit is responsible for providing information and support to the general public and working with our community partners to increase our air quality.
