Children face risk of exposure

With more time spent outdoors during summer, children are at risk for exposure to high levels of ground-level ozone. This type of ozone is formed by exhaust from petrochemical plants or automobiles and can damage body tissue.

"Children have a growing respiratory tract and breathe in more air per pound of body weight than adults," said Dr. Nick Hanania, a lung specialist at Baylor College of Medicine. "With ozone exposure, we tend to see a drop in lung function."

Sunlight, heat and humidity, which are highest at midday, all contribute to high ground-level ozone levels. Hanania suggests setting children's outdoor playtime to either the early morning or late afternoon.

"Ozone overexposure can result in temporary chest tightness, a cough and breathing problems," Hanania said. "People should take local ozone warnings seriously."
