It may be disturbing to know this report from CNN that polluted air is indeed cancerous. Think about it! Major steps must be done by the government to at least help minimize air pollution. We can’t just stop breathing every now and then – to lessen our intake of these dangerous gasses. There must be something we can do but before that, read this report:

Air pollution causes cancer, world health authority says
