Eduardo R., CA

I have been concerned about the level of air pollution after reading an article about how terrible LA county pollution is. This concern was made worse after a weeklong visit to Big Bear Lake. During my stay there, my nasal drip and congestion disappeared. I hadn't notice this until my vacation was over. Now, I continuously have to clear my nose and throat from congestion.

After connecting the dots regarding what I read and how I felt after coming to LA, I now realize that air pollution is having an affect on me on a day-to-day basis. I am currently researching to find a healthier city to live.
