Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - Front Page - — Kathy McCormick

No-cost and low-cost life­style changes can make your home eas­ier to live with if you have asthma, says a fed­eral agency. Other than the ob­vi­ous ad­vice to stop smok­ing, fol­low th­ese tips: don’t idle your car in the at­tached garage, avoid­ing ve­hi­cle ex­haust get­ting into your house; do not rely on plants to get rid of pol­lu­tants — the soil can be a source of mould; avoid us­ing can­dles and oil lamps be­cause they cre­ate soot that can be breathed; and stop us­ing air fresh­en­ers and de­odor­iz­ers to mask odours be­cause they add pol­lu­tants to the air.
