How is the Air Quality in Jacksonville?
The air quality in Jacksonville is below the national average. On a scale of 1 to 100, 100 being the best, Jacksonville ranks 54.2 while the national average is 58.4
Additionally, on the same scale of 1 to 100, Jacksonville landed a 48.6 on chances of getting cancer and a 59.8 of receiving a respiratory disease.
There is a serious problem with living in coastal cities and not looking out for your air quality. It is incredibly easy to pick up foreign particles from the air due to old buildings, proximity to the ocean, and bad habits from homeowners.
So here are the common problems that occur in the air in Jacksonville.
Common Problems with the air in Jacksonville
With a rapid loss of bees in the population and the close distance to much of Florida’s farmland, there is a higher output of pollen than in most of the mainland United States.
Besides pollen, the metropolitan area has a surplus of the materials and molecules that can cause allergic reactions in its residents.
Debris, Dust, Fungal Spores
Finally, debris, dust, and fungal spores. Most of the buildings in Jacksonville go through renovations and constantly updated from the old days. With that, there is often a lot of these materials being thrown around the city and without the proper filters, going straight into your respiratory system.
