The Placer County Public Health Officer and Placer County Air Pollution Control District are re-issuing a joint air quality advisory to notify the public of the potential of poor air quality conditions due to smoke from fires now burning throughout the state.

Morgan Hill, San Martin, Gilroy and Hollister early Wednesday, Aug.8, began experiencing brown, hazy skies, the smoke impacts from the Mendocino Complex Fire and other wildfires.

Air quality is anticipated to be variable across the province during the coming days due to wildfire smoke and potential record-setting temperatures, Alberta Health Services officials said in a news release Wednesday.

Air quality can and will vary with weather conditions and prevailing winds.

A varied diet makes you fat, say scientists
The new advisory points out that there are many ways to define a varied diet, and some of them aren't so healthy. Doctors with the America Heart Association say there's no proof that a diverse diet is healthy.

Sensitive individuals should stay indoors in an air conditioned building with windows and doors closed whenever there is smoke at ground level in their area.

The air quality statement may expand to accompanying regions this evening, according to Environment Canada. These potential negative health impacts may be exacerbated by prolonged smoke or ozone exposure. "Ozone pollution is particularly harmful for young children, seniors and those with respiratory and heart conditions".

"Although minor smoke conditions do not typically cause health concerns in healthy individuals, if smoke conditions become more severe, even healthy individuals may experience temporary irritation of eyes and throat, and possibly shortness of breath".

Bay Area residents are advised to avoid exposure by the smoke by staying inside with windows and doors closed, and to set air conditioning units and auto vent systems to re-circulate to stop outside air from coming inside.
