The fumes from car exhausts kills us slowly when we burn
it and release the carcinogens into the atmosphere to create
smogs. We might as well be smoking cigarettes. But there is no
Government health warning on cars!

Air pollution levels tend to be higher in UK towns and cities.
So why would anyone live there? The answer to that is they
need the work and the money - so are prepared to accept the
risk of a shorter life and painful death. And of course it
costs more to live in the country, where there are no
affordable houses. Councils like Wealden
make sure of that.
In 2013, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) confirmed that outdoor air pollution is a cause of cancer. Tiny dust-like particles just millionths of a metre wide, called ‘particulate matter’, make up a part of outdoor air pollution. The smallest particles known as PM10 and PM2.5 are linked to lung cancers caused by pollution. It is not fully understood how these particles can damage
DNA in cells and cause cancer.
