Filed under: General HealthHow "good" is the air you breathe each and every day? If you live in a big city, the quality is probably not the best in the world -- and in fact, it can be downright tyrannical over your respiratory system in some cases. I've known some people who had to move due to having bad respiratory conditions due to local air.
In a new study published just last week in the New England Journal of Medicine, a final conclusion was that where you live in a city is more important than which city you live in. Closeness to the vagaries of heavy air pollution, in other words, could take a larger toll on health than actually living in a city known for subpar air qua lity.
No wonder the suburbs are more comfortable for many citizens, eh?
