The American Lung Association warns that a growing number of US residents are living in areas with unhealthy air pollution. More than 46.2 million people live in an area with unhealthful year-round levels of particle pollution.

More than 13 percent of people in the United States live in an area with too many days with unhealthful levels of particle pollution.

Over half of the population lives in 418 counties where they’re exposed to unhealthful levels, ones that could shorten life or cause lung cancer of either ozone pollution, or short-term, or year-round particle pollution.
