Why are children more at risk? Children are more likely to be exposed to air pollution, because they often spend more time outdoors engaged in activity and play, and they breathe more air per pound of body weight than adults. They are more susceptible to the effects of air pollution, because their airways are still developing. In addition, children are more likely than adults to have asthma, which increases their risk.” What can I do to reduce my exposure to fine particle pollution when levels are extremely high? https://cfpub.epa.gov/airnow/index.cfm?action=aqibasics.pmhilevels
