The dangers of urban air pollution are of special concern to people who exercise by running, bicycling, or skating: these people, while trying to help their bodies through exercise, should take care that they don’t harm them through exposure to air pollution. By taking a few simple precautions you can make your exercise a wholly good thing, and keep air pollution out of your body.
* Do not run on or near roads where there is heavy truck or bus traffic.
* Work out in the early morning or later in the evening.
* Exercise indoors if possible.
* If you experience any difficulty breathing, stop your exercise immediately and see your doctor.
