  • pollution limits

    By Life Quotes, Inc.

    One of the nation’s leading health organizations is throwing its support behind proposals by the Environmental Protection Agency to further limit certain emissions from power plants.

    According to the American Lung Association, between 14,000 and 36,000 lives each year could be saved with the EPA proposal, which would apply to power plants in 31 states.

    Specifically, the effort aims to require the use of pollution control technology that would reduce sulfur dioxide pollution by 71 percent, and nitrogen oxide by 52 percent. The American Lung Association also expressed concern about particulate matter pollution, which is common in areas with heavy industry or vehicle traffic.

    “Power plants spew so much of these pollutants that they must be cleaned up if our nation hopes to reduce the burden of ozone smog and particle pollution in the East and Midwest,” said the organization in its announcement.

    With thousands of people dying each year due to medical conditions brought on by environmental factors like pollution, investing in a life insurance policy is a good way to provide long-term financial stability to loved ones.
