Why is Ozone Such a Big Deal?
What you need to know about Ozone
So what is Ozone anyway?
Ozone is a molecule that is made up of three atoms of oxygen. It is the molecule that is found high in the atmosphere and protects us from the sun's rays. The oxygen that you breathe everyday is made up of only two of these atoms. When the third molecule joins in, one of the molecules can easily detach itself and react with other organic material. This is where the potential problems with Ozone begin.
Why should I worry about Ozone?
According to the EPA, there are many health issues that can occur due to exposure to Ozone. Please read the EPA's Ozone and Your Health brochure for more detailed information.
