The Top Sources Of Pollution Inhalation

A new study reveals some surprising results about how people inhale the most air pollution on a daily basis.

A new London study has demonstrated that "taxi cabins expose drivers and riders to more air pollution than any other form of transportation."

"Public buses came in second with around 95,000 particles per cubic centimeter, followed by cycling at 84,000 particles/cubic centimeter and walking at around 46,000 particles/cubic centimeter."

However, "A personal car..provided the most protection, exposing its passengers to an average of just under 37,000 particles/cubic centimeter." But, "when the team compared exposure to all forms of measured air pollution -- including larger particles and carbon monoxide -- walking proved the best mode of transportation."
