"Pollution could be damaging your brain"

GICAS director Dr. Michael Mehta's research is mentioned in the Globe and Mail in an article on air pollution and brain development.
“While research and regulations tend to focus on vehicular emissions, Dr. Mehta noted that the largest source of air pollution in many rural Canadian communities is biomass burning. In Gabriola Island, B.C., where he lives part of the year and where many heat their homes with wood stoves and fireplaces, Dr. Mehta said he was surprised to find air-pollution measurements that were significantly worse than in the country’s urban centres.”
