LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A new study is showing the negative side effects of living next to a busy road.
The study looked at 13 cities and found that air pollution contribute to a higher chance of heart disease, strokes, heart failure and bronchitis.
It further found that children exposed to a roadside air pollution could have their lung growth stunted by up to 14 percent.
Researchers also said if air pollution was cut by a fifth there would be thousands fewer cases of children with symptoms of bronchitis.
