State of the Air 2012 Report Released by American Lung Association
Today the American Lung Association released its State of the Air 2012 report, revealing America’s cities with the best and worst air quality. As the ALA website states, for 13 years the organization has analyzed data from state air quality monitors to compile this report.
“The more you learn about the air you breathe, the more you can protect your health and take steps to make our air cleaner and healthier.”
