How many are interested in this? None I suspect, but it is affecting all of us whether we like it or not. After your lungs have been damaged, there is no repair mechanism in place yet.
Well i suffer with Asthma and have just spent two weeks in the Lakes and have not once used my inhalers i arrive home last night and i am already using them and it's solely down to the air quality in the centre of Dawlish
My parter has Asthma and We have a Weekend home on Exmore and don't have to use her inhaler with the clean air, and as soon as we come back to Dawlish Exeter Road she has to use the inhaler a lot.
I do what I can to protect my health which I know is failing. And if I could improve my health (which I can't, it is progressive) then I would.
Moving to Exmoor would certainly be my main aim if it would help, but I know it wouldn't so there is no point in me doing it. Regarding what UPWITHIT has said, I would start packing and looking for somewhere to live on Exmoor, I wouldn't give it a second thought.
I do know of others that have moved to improve their health.
Is there any air quality data available for the centre of Dawlish i cant find any, and who is responsible for monotoring our air quality i presume its the Local Authority.
Where are the senors that monitor air quality in Dawlish?
Where is the data from those senors?
I have noted that a lot of school children (Who are most at risk) regularly travel through the marked area.
Sounds like a great opportunity for the government to introduce more stealth taxes. Why not just ban smoking, industry, cows farting, cars, and we can all sign up for digitas
