Apr 25, 2001, 01:00 ET from Aerias, LLC

    ATLANTA, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Judging by its extensive presentation of
 reader-friendly and easily navigated content, the creators of Aerias.org are
 not exaggerating when they describe newly launched Aerias.org as the
 Internet's definitive source for all indoor air quality and its impact on
 human health.

     Karen K. Miles, Ph.D., researcher and writer of Aerias.org, notes, "This
 site is a one-stop shop for consumers, doctors and medical researchers, health
 and safety professionals, school administrators, builders, architects,
 interior designers, facility managers and product manufacturers who seek up-
 to-the-minute information as well as a wealth of background material relating
 to any and all issues regarding indoor air quality."  Dr. Miles is a Certified
 Health Education Specialist, specializing in occupational and environmental
 health matters.
     Aerias.org provides easy navigation throughout the site, and features the
 latest news streamed daily from Reuters Health eLine.  Visitors enjoy virtual
 tours of an office building, a school, a home, and other locations to learn
 about specific indoor air quality issues within that space.  They may click on
 the picture of a particular room within a commercial office building, such as
 the conference room, or a classroom in a school, and obtain information on
 potential pollutants present, their sources, and control measures.
     The site, which features several hundred pages, also provides general
 facts on indoor air pollutants including their health effects and impact on
 asthma and allergies, and sick building syndrome.  Biological and chemical
 pollutants are listed along with their sources and typical levels found in
 buildings.
     While the launch of Aerias.org marks the completion of Phase One, Kelley
 Hise, editor of Aerias.org says that Phase Two is already in production and
 will offer advanced learning to PhDs, medical doctors, and safety and health
 professionals evaluating indoor air quality illnesses and health complaints.
 Aerias.org will enable them to evaluate environmental data from buildings
 relative to volatile organic compounds (VOC), pesticides, combustion gases,
 particles, molds and allergens, and their impact on  pulmonary and respiratory
 systems in children and adults.
     Standards, verifiable laboratory test results, and guest columns bylined
 by IAQ experts comprise just a portion of the massive content found at
 Aerias.org.  Manufacturers who are participants in voluntary, independent
 product testing, such as those listed in www.greenguard.org , and whose
 products are among the lowest emittants of indoor air pollutants and VOCs in
 the global marketplace today, are showcased at Aerias.org.
     Investigation protocols, such as those established by the National
 Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the Occupational Safety and
 Health Administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and
 others are also featured.
     Additional information pages offer links to the EPA, the U.S. Department
 of Energy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a hotline to the
 Consumer Product Safety Commission, and much, much more.
  One of the most compelling areas of content at Aerias.org, according to
 Joseph Q. Jarvis, M.D., and health content editor of the site, is the
 technical information relating to the amount and composition of chemical
 pollutants and allergens found in office equipment and building materials.
     "The average individual spends nearly 90 percent of his/her time indoors,
 mostly at a desk, and isn't aware of the impact of our indoor air quality on
 human health, and the dramatic increase in building-related illnesses that
 have been validated," explains Dr. Jarvis.
  Having published and lectured extensively on indoor air quality, Dr. Jarvis
 says there is no other site on the Internet that is as comprehensive and
 broadens the awareness of indoor air quality issues, than Aerias.org.
     Aerias, LLC, is affiliated with, but not owned by Atlanta, Georgia-based
 Air Quality Sciences, Inc., a world leader in Indoor Air Quality, Molds and
 Allergens, and Environmental Chamber Technology protocols used for measuring
 chemical and particle emissions from indoor work processes and manufactured
 products.
