Breathing in Fire Compounds
“That fire [Camp Fire from Paradise, CA] is causing the worst air pollution in history for the Bay Area and northern California, says John Balmes, a physician at the University of California, Berkeley, who sits on the California Air Resources Board.” 1
“Longer-term impacts of such exposure, meanwhile, are little understood. Few studies have been conducted to track the health of people months, and years, after they have been exposed to high concentrations of ‘particulate’ pollution. The emissions are similar to the toxic particles released with the burning of fossil fuels. But fire fumes could pose an additional risk, because they include chemicals released when homes and cars — and their attendant insulation, plastics and metals — burn.” 2
” ‘This is not good for our lungs,’ says Dr. Gopal Allada, a pulmonologist and critical care specialist at Oregon Health & Science University, ‘When you inhale these really small particles, smaller than a few microns, they can land in your lungs and cause respiratory symptoms.’ They can even pass into your bloodstream.” 3
“For people who have underlying heart conditions or respiratory illnesses — such as asthma or chronic lung disease — exposure to wildfire smoke can be serious. Other high-risk groups include people over 65, children (whose lungs are still developing) and pregnant women, because of the risk to the fetus.” 3

Other ways to stimulate the lymphatic system are salt scrubs, dry brushing or jumping on a rebounder.
