Driving with the windows down


We feel pretty content cruising up the motorway with the wind blowing through our hair on a warm day, but we never spare a thought for our poor lungs as we breathe in the harmful pollutants emitted by cars.

A study from the University of Southern California has found that spending a mere six per cent of our day driving in the car with the windows down exposes us to around 45 per cent of pollutants that we encounter in 24 hours-that’s a lot of pollutants to come into contact with in such a short amount of time.
