Virginia E.

I have never had any breathing issues until I moved to Marin County California. I now have asthma and allergies, due to the firewood smoke and car exhaust that is ever present in the area. We have little in alternative transportation, and bike sharing opportunities. People have to drive everywhere. Many homes burn wood even on "spare the air" days. I am looking to relocate out of this over-priced area of unhealthy air and cancer cluster.
