Have air pollution, will be sick

Hunter Valley air - is it safe or is it not?

A new study published in the The Lancet Oncology Journal (although don't expect to read it unless you pay a fortune for it) says that:

'Air pollution...is having a sometimes fatal effect on health'...

...and
 

'...although smoking is a far bigger cause of lung cancer, a significant number of people will get the disease because of where they live.'

This is us in the Hunter Valley and still we keep digging up coal, building freeways, clamouring for bypasses, completely ignoring the data

- where to now?
