It is strongly linked to strokes, heart attacks, many kinds of cancer, dementia, and premature birth, among other ailments. Join author, Beth Gardiner, as she exposes the political decisions and economic forces that have kept so many of us breathing dirty air. Discover the scientists who have transformed our understanding of pollution’s effects on the body and the ordinary people fighting for a cleaner future.
