Air pollution is not just hurting your breathing, causing asthma and making you wheeze, it's also affecting your heart and weight
NEW DELHI :
In September, an interesting case study of a woman suffering from asthma was published in the journal Annals Of Allergy, Asthma And Immunology. The woman had moved recently from a rural community to a dense urban environment in the US. Though she was asthmatic, she enjoyed biking to work, and her new route took her through a lot of traffic. Her doctor analysed her bike route, found that 70% of her commute was in close proximity to major roadways and recommended an alternative route where only 15% of her time would be near high-traffic roads.
