Air Pollution and Respiratory Health/Contaminated Water
1.
_______________ related pollutants are one of the largest contributors to unhealthy air quality.
2.

that can aggravate asthma.
3.
__________ of American children live in areas that regularly exceed the U.S. EPA’s limits for

_______________, and lead.
11.
