Air Pollution contributes

You’re born where you’re born. That can’t be helped. But science must do its bit in studying the evidence and come to conclusions. I hope Diet significantly counters these risks;

Interesting !  I was born and raised in Los Angeles and back then air pollution (smog) was at a very high level.  It has improved quite a lot since then but is still a problem.  Where I live now in the desert there is virtually no air pollution but it is also not very densely populated.

I've never lived anywhere that air pollution was a serious risk. It certainly isn't down here in the Ozarks - it barely exists. I suppose the worst I ever saw was 20 years in Greeley Colorado, where the quality of the air was impacted by huge feedlots. And that was nothing poisonous or damaging to humans - it simply STANK!
