PURISM, EMOTIONALISM, CONSERVATISM, OR PRAGMATISM IN RELATION TO TRANSPORT INDUCED AIR POLLUTION

Three substances, carbon monoxide, inorganic lead, and the substance mixture termed "photochemical smog" are discussed with reference to known health effects, potential health effects, suggested health effects and fictional health effects. Ambient air pollution can be a factor in the induction of disease but it must be seen in context with other aetiological factors of disease. A degree of air pollution may well be more acceptable than deprivation of societal benefits produced by the "pollutors." The decision is one for an informed public. (TRRL)
