Hold your breath: Phoenix ranked among most polluted cities in the nation


Phoenix has been ranked among the most polluted cities in the nation, according to a recent report from the American Lung Association.

The association’s 2016 “State of the Air” report found that the Valley of the Sun ranked No. 5 for most polluted city nationwide for ozone, decreasing only slightly from levels recorded in 2015.

In a press release, Julie Reid with the association’s Arizona chapter said the city’s ozone levels put residents at risk for serious health problems, such as premature death, asthma attacks and cardiovascular harm.
