Angela Tin, Vice President of Environmental Health of the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest, recently visited multiple media outlets across Nebraska to share the positive story of American Ethanol and its favorable impact on our health and environment.
Nebraska, some of Tin’s stops included: KMTV Morning Blend, KRVN Radio, KLIN
Radio, KFOR Radio, NTV News, KOLN/KGIN News and the Lincoln Journal Star.
During her media sweep, Tin shared information about the dangerous carcinogens
that are added to fuel in increase octane. These cancer-causing carcinogens –
benzene, toluene, and xylene (BTX) from our fuel threaten our health as they
enter our lungs and bloodstream. Fortunately, American Ethanol is a cleaner
fuel alternative that Nebraskan’s can take advantage of.
air is more dangerous than it looks and what's leaving the tailpipes is harmful
to lung health," said Tin. "That's the bad news. The good news is
that we have a choice: American Ethanol."
Ethanol is a non-toxic, clean burning source of octane. American Ethanol
provides optimal engine performance without spewing toxic particulate matter
out of the tailpipe.
with oil, American Ethanol-blended fuel burns cleaner and improves air quality.
When drivers use American Ethanol, they’re reducing the causes of asthma, heart
disease, and brain and lung cancer not only for themselves but also their
children and grandchildren. American Ethanol eliminates toxic, cancer-causing
emissions in vehicle exhaust—reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emission
while, improving human health.
Ethanol should be the Clean Air Choice for our fuel if we're serious about
improving air quality and reducing the costly impacts of engine exhaust on
human health,” added Tin.
