We all depend upon the air we breathe for life. There is a direct correlation between air quality and overall population health: the cleaner our air, the better our health. It is not just us who are affected, but our future generations as well. Prenatal health deteriorates with poor air quality, resulting in worse postnatal health, and has the potential to negatively impact the ability to learn, placing an individual at a disadvantage from birth. Clean air is a right, not a privilege, and we all need to whatever we can to support the goal of clean air for everyone.
