“Particulate air pollution is like lead pollution, there is no evidence of a safe threshold even at levels far below current standards … . We need to focus on strategies that lower exposure everywhere and all the time, and not just in locations or on days with high particulate levels.” - Joel Schwartz (a professor of environmental epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health)
