“We have no non-smokers in India. Everybody living in India is a smoker. Air is needed for every breath. The only thing you can do if you want to avoid total damage is to stop breathing, which unfortunately you cannot do for more than a minute.” – Dr. Arvind Kumar, chest surgeon and founder of the Lung Care Foundation
According to Air Quality Life Index, developed by the University of Chicago, air pollution cuts life expectancy by almost two years and the consequences of pollution are more fatal than HIV/AIDS, cigarette smoking, and even terrorism.
Not breathing is not an option but including the right foods in your diet can help prevent the ill effects of air pollution. Like broccoli and broccoli sprouts, which prevent a common nasal allergy that occurs with exposure to diesel exhaust.
