Episode 192: What You Need to Know About Wildfire Smoke

In this new episode, Dr. Toni reviews how wildfire smoke impacts the health of you and your kids. The particle matter in wildfire smoke has been found to be up to 10 times more harmful to your health than the particle matter from other sources. Not only can it cause headaches and irritate your eyes, throat and respiratory system, it can increase inflammation and oxidative damage, leading to higher risk of reproductive issues, cardiovascular disease, neurological and immune disorders. Listen in to find out how you can protect yourself and your kids from this growing problem in the summer.
