[Federal Register Volume 78, Number 187 (Thursday, September 26, 2013)]
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-09 ... -23252.htm

SUMMARY: EPA is finalizing approval of revisions to the South Coast Air
Quality Management District (SCAQMD) portion of the California State
Implementation Plan (SIP). This action was proposed in the Federal
Register on June 24, 2013 and concerns volatile organic compound (VOC),
oxides of nitrogen (NOX), and particulate matter (PM)
emissions from open burning and wood-burning devices. We are approving
local rules that regulate these emission sources under the Clean Air
Act (CAA or the Act).

DATES: These rules will be effective on October 28, 2013.
• 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!
