It’s definitely not something to celebrate. I still have that cold resting in my lungs, and the smog isn’t exactly helping… I can only imagine how people with asthma and other respiratory problems must feel on days like this, and this is only the first one. It’s just going to get more frequent and more severe from here on in.
I’ve swiped this from this article on Pulse 24.
Smog Fighting Suggestions
I’m not sure yet if I’m going to bike to work or take transit. Biking might be harsh today, especially with the lung-cough I’ve got going on. I’m starting to seriously consider buying one of those air-filter masks from MEC for the summer. I am willing to look paranoid if it means I can breathe. I just have to find out how well the things work before I invest in one. There’s one for about 20$ and one for about 60$… I’ll have to find someone who’s used them and can tell me about them or something. I’ll look like such a paranoid freak. Heh.
