MMB Compass Health Newsletter – Haze
Haze is air pollution caused by particulate matter suspended in the air, composed of microscopic droplets so small they can get deep into our lungs and cause many adverse health effects. The recent haze has resulted in a jump in the number of respiratory problems, sickness absenteeism, and increased healthcare utilization in Southeast Asia.
This month’s Compass Health Advisory will help raise awareness of the precautionary measures that can be taken to protect you and your loved ones during these smoky times.
