Pollution May Be Giving You Dementia

While the quality of American air is the cleanest its been in 40 years, its no reason to breathe easy. Many scientists now believe that the millions of fine particles floating aroundmainly from the increasing number idling car engines sitting in trafficmay be leading to an increased risk of Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease. In fact, we could save nearly two million deaths globally just by cleaning up the air we breathe. Regulating diesel engines seems to be the quickest route to cleaner air but, until then, the school bus driving next to you might be among health’s worst enemies.
