[blockquote size=”full” align=”right” byline=”The American Lung Association, California”]Burning wood emits harmful toxins and fine particles into the air that can worsen asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

As with any pollution, children are especially at risk. Their lungs do not fully form until the age of 18 and exposure to higher levels of wood smoke can lead to reduced lung function and risk of future lung disease.

For children with asthma, breathing wood smoke can lead to serious asthma attacks and breathing emergencies.[/blockquote] [button url=”http://www.lung.org/local-content/_content-items/about-us/media/press-releases/american-lung-association-in-16.html” target=”_blank” style=”normal”]Read the report[/button]
