Cars and health

Two reports this week about the effects of traffic on health here and here. While the Times suggests that the suggestion that damage to cyclist's lungs from traffic fumes is as bad as smoking may be overstated, it is clear that there is a growing consensus about the toxic effects of our addiction to cars.

When coupled to the obesity epidemic and the report that the childhood obesity targets set by the govt are not going to be met we have to question why we love the car so much.
