Wood smoke and lung health

Did you know wood smoke hurts human health? Wood smoke contains many small particulates that can be breathed in to your lungs and cause breathing problems. If you have a lung disease, it can make your lung disease worse. 

Be sure to burn smart. If you have a wood stove, ensure it's efficient (and take advantage of BC's wood stove exchange program if it applies in your community).
