Strong link between higher levels of pollution, lung health of European citizens

This study confirms previous findings that children growing up in areas with higher levels of pollution will have lower levels of lung function and a higher risk of developing symptoms such as cough and bronchitis symptoms.

Another carried an Android with an app that visually represents the data in real time; colored dots changed from yellow to orange to red to indicate a rise in the PM 2.5 levels. All the data was then uploaded to the AirCasting website, where it appears on an open-source map.

As for the AirBeam, Heimbinder was keenly aware of the challenges. Nouveaux Riches and Pollutants in New Chinese Dictionary. The Chinese national flag flies in front of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in Hong Kong on Aug. 27, 2014.
