I Can Breathe Clearly Now
Americans are inundated with government analyses and news reports that are simply not based on fact. Many represent the best information circa 50-some years ago, when the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) was proposed, but fundamental errors in how the CAA was written and vast advances in health science result in regulations that are too strong in some instances, and fatally weak in others. But here’s the good news: protection is available for you and your family members, and you can do it yourself! You’ll learn how by reading this book.
I Can Breathe Clearly Now:
Protecting Yourself From Air Pollution
This is a book about a serious topic with life-or-death implications. It exposes and explores problems associated with soil and air contamination using complex scientific data that physicist Thomas Cahill and his colleagues produced through meticulous measurements and analysis over five decades.
By THOMAS A. CAHILL
The deaths of millions of people globally each year, along with serious health problems in untold millions of others, may be preventable. But government inaction and industrial irresponsibility often stand in the way, as documented in a revealing new book by Thomas A. Cahill, Ph.D., an internationally recognized professor of physics and atmospheric sciences from the University of California, Davis. I Can Breathe Clearly Now: Protecting Yourself From Air Pollution lays bare in 20 chapters the insidious detrimental health effects from numerous sources of air pollution, including diesel exhaust, unregulated ultra-fine metals, ozone, the toxic airborne fungal disease Valley fever, wood-burning stoves, and aerosols from radon decay. Each chapter includes a section on how readers can evaluate their specific risk, and practical ways to protect themselves from the pollutant in question.
