Gusty winds prompt health caution

Gusty winds prompt health caution

Blowing dust in San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Tulare, Kings, Fresno, and the valley portion of Kern counties poses potential health concern

Local air pollution officials are issuing a health cautionary statement effective through Wednesday night, May 22, 2013, because of blowing dust resulting from gusty winds. The health caution is in effect for San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Tulare, Kings, Fresno, and the valley portion of Kern counties.

Winds may produce areas of localized dust, which can result in unhealthy concentrations of particulate matter 10 microns and smaller (PM10). Exposure to particulate pollution can cause serious health problems, aggravate lung disease, trigger asthma attacks and bronchitis, and increase risk of respiratory infections.

Tune in TONIGHT to 'Fighting Lung Cancer: A Woman's Inspiration'

Increasingly, more and more people who’ve never smoked a day in their life are being diagnosed with lung cancer. And while lung cancer causes more deaths annually than any other form of cancer, if caught early, recovery is at its best.

News 10 and Mercy Cancer Institute of Greater Sacramento invite you to tune in to a special half-hour segment “Fighting Lung Cancer: A Woman’s Inspiration” Thursday, November 29 at 7:30 p.m.

You will be introduced to local women, all non-smokers, who were diagnosed with lung cancer incidentally, and learn about the movement that seeks to screen and catch lung cancer early—for the best possible treatment outcomes.

Again, this show airs Thursday, November 29, at 7:30pm on News10.  You won't want to miss it!
