Even though I have no diagnosed medical condition, I am sensitive to particle pollution and ground level ozone before the levels even hit yellow. I looked longingly at my bicycle today and decided not to ride, because I knew I would come back fatigued, dizzy, and short of breath.

We need to work together to clean up our air. Just because everyone isn't as obviously sensitive to it as some of us doesn't mean it isn't causing damage and disease to everyone. According to a new study, it's even shrinking our brains. Time to act before we're all too stupid to fight back.
