Today’s Wall Street Journal cover of the fourth section has article entitled “The Hidden Toll of Traffic Jams.”
“As roadways choke on traffic, researchers suspect that the tailpipe exhaust from cars and trucks – especially tiny carbon particles already implicated in heart disease, cancer and respiratory ailments – may also injure brain cells and synapses key to learning and memory.”
They go on to say “traffic fumes exact a measurable toll on mental capacity, intelligence and emotional stability.”
Can you IMAGE what running along congested areas, such as Lake Shore Drive in Chicago or Central Park in New York City, must do to the brain.
SO running will not only make you fat, it may also damage your brain!!!
