Can you say yes to a healthier happier life with less pollution?
Less air pollution means:
less asthma, bronchitis, diabetes,
fewer heart attacks and strokes,
less lung cancer, emphysema, etc.
The editors of the British medical journal, The Lancet, wrote about what could happen
with radical pollution reductions: "cleaner skies, healthier diets...& safer places to live."
And the less pollution, the healthier your skin.

Oftentimes, "your biggest daily exposure to air pollutants comes while driving your car”.
