Some argue that although cycling is beneficial for health, it may increase air pollution intake, leading to negative consequences on health. Yet, studies have shown that this physical activity outweighs the harm caused by air pollution intake. Other than that, if used as a clean form of transport we will continue to help the progress that has been made since 1990 in reducing the emissions of many air pollutants from the transport sector.

Many fail to discuss the harmful effect on the environment, which is caused by the release of toxic gases into the air from cigarette smoke, the seeping of chemicals into the soil from cigarette buts, the air pollution caused by the industrial processing of cigarettes, and the deforestation caused by the plantation of tobacco plants in rainforests. All of which has a harmful ripple effect on the environment we all live in.

The view from my window. Two extremes. The solar panels and solar water heater that help the environment by using renewable sources of energy and the construction site which is blocking the light energy to reach them, blocking the views of the nice sky, blocking our airways with the dust particles and other pollutants generated.
