Lots of wood-burning smoke

Re: Air pollution by Colorado Springs Utilities.

When I work outside on cooler days, I regularly get a nose full of wood burning smoke. This smoke burns eyes and air passages and seems to be irritating to the respiratory system, yet it is never addressed. There are many wood-burning fireplaces in the northeast area yet the Colorado Springs Utilities always gets the bad rep. Can someone come up with an answer?

• The Surgeon General has determined that there is no safe level of exposure to ambient smoke!

• If you smell even a subtle odor of smoke, you are being exposed to poisonous and carcinogenic chemical compounds!

• Even a brief exposure to smoke raises blood pressure, (no matter what your state of health) and can cause blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack in vulnerable people. Even children experience elevated blood pressure when exposed to smoke!

• Since smoke drastically weakens the lungs' immune system, avoiding smoke is one of the best ways to prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, or risk of an even more serious respiratory illness, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis! Does your child have the flu? Chances are they have been exposed to ambient smoke!
