Road Pollution can hurt kids, lungs, etc.

Hi Connie, Well I keep thinking that I frost bit my lungs when I was little girl.

On the coldest days (50 below) Mom would make us wait inside the house until we could see the school bus coming up the blacktop. Then we'd have to sprint the quarter of mile + to end of driveway. My older brothers could run it no problem, but the bus always had to wait for me. I tried really hard to keep up....spent the rest of the day coughing too. This happened about twice a year.

So I think I must have scarred my lungs that way. Anyone else? :)

Well, I guess it's not just smoking that causes cancer. But then again we all knew that.

Donna, I know the air down in Vegas was thick with gas fumes. Some days were worse then others. But it was a very strong ishy smell, and you could taste it too. :shock::roll:

Wow Barb, I never thought of frost bite in the lungs. That just makes sense!

I have said for a very long time that the air we breathe is a big health factor. But then again, I'm no doctor. It's just one of those things that makes sense to me.
