Air pollution is a major problem – affecting people’s health from cradle to grave. Over the next few days we will explore different parts of the problem – and how they affect people.
We took a trip by bike down Cycle Superhighway 2 in Tower Hamlets – to explore air pollution and how it affects our lives. We also attached an air pollution monitor to the bike, measuring the different levels of PM2.5 – tiny dust particles small enough to get into our lungs and bloodstreams – along the route.
