Randie H., TX

Since moving from 5,000 feet above sea level to 500 feet above sea level, the air is very heavy. When pollution is added to the air, I have difficulty with breathing. My husband also has difficulty breathing. We both get very dry throats and cough a lot.

In addition, my sinuses are worse than they ever have been in my life. The doctor who helped me blames my problems on air pollution.

Gardening, biking and jogging have lost their enjoyment, since pollution in the air keeps my throat dry, lungs feeling goopy, and makes breathing difficult
