Dust Links

As you probably know even without reading as much as a sentence on this site, dust is an unavoidable part of our lives. There is particulate matter in the air of our homes, businesses, in our atmosphere, and even in outer space. What concerns most of us as far as health and safety issues go, is domestic dust, or house dust, as well as atmospheric dust and pollutants in the air. There are lots of resources on the Internet about dust, the types of dust, and how to practice effective dust control to minimize the health risks that they pose, particularly to children, the elderly, and those with respiratory illnesses.
Below, you can find some links of interest for further research, compiled for your convenience.

Atmospheric dust, which is also often harmful to our health and safety (it can cause an explosion hazard, for instance, and it can be seriously damaging to the environment), is regulated and controlled in the U.S. by the Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA. One of the most important pieces of legislation on the matter is the Clean Air Act, whose implementation is within EPA jurisdiction.
