Air Pollution: Should I Wear a Mask in the City?

Tom Cole-Hunter, a postdoctoral researcher at the CREAL, one of the centres within the PRBB, has written this post recently in the “Health is Global” blog  about air pollution, cycling and the risks and benefits of their combination.

Cole-Hunter and his colleagues at the CREAL – an allied centre of ISGlobal – are involved in the European Commision-backed project CITI-SENSE , which aims to create real-time updated maps of air quality in several European cities.

Read his post here, and consider helping out scientists to achieve a better understanding of the air pollution levels around us, by downloading the CityAir app, available for both Android and iOS.

Thanks!
