Mary J., FL

Since coming to Miami, I have acquired terrible seasonal allergies and bronchiectasis. I like to exercise and my favorite is walking, but because of the state of the atmosphere and my living in a heavy traffic and construction zone, I can never go out, or I will come back sick.

I don't think Miami will ever be a clean city.  To the contrary, it will only get worse.
