If Air Pollution Doesn't Cause Sudden Cardiac Death, It Can Drive You to Suicide

I have really got to do something about my commute.

Choose your poison: heart attack, lung disease, and now suicide!?!

“…another study, this one in South Korea, has demonstrated a link between suicide and high levels of particulate pollution. New Scientist also reports that “researchers who in the 1990s linked air pollution to asthma in a large group of Taiwanese children have now found that those with the condition were subsequently more likely to have killed themselves.”

It is amazing what they can prove in a study. On the other hand, no one ever tried to prove that biking causes suicide.

When I look up my city to see the State of My Air, big surprise…. there it is #7 in the Top 10 U.S. Cities Most Polluted by Short-Term Particle Pollution.

Great. This is just great.
