    Thank you for this informative article on an important subject.

    50 years ago I served in the U.S. Public Health Service working to crate a “Livable Environment.”

    We as a nation have not progressed as far and as fast as we have needed to do to protect our public health. Why?

    Federal policies have harmed us all.

    I agree with Mr. Stott. We know.

    What I don’t know is why, with all the knowledge of particulate pollution,
    we continue to allow the type of free-form and needless pollution that is
    increasing, not decreasing: wood-fired ovens, fire pits, fire places, for that matter.

    We know that fine particulate matter crosses over into our blood from the lungs.
    We know following this process organs in the body are either being damaged by the particulates, or toxins which adhere to the particulates, or both.
    So why wouldn’t these same particulates and toxins be poisoning our brain which is being fed by the same laced blood supply?
