Sooty air pollution is linked to genetic mutations

In an article by Lauran Neergaard from Associated Press you can read about how air filters protected mice in a study done by Canadian researchers. Here is an excerpt:

"WASHINGTON — Sooty air pollution can cause genetic damage that can be passed along to offspring, Canadian researchers reported Thursday in a study on mice.

Follow-up work is needed to learn if people can inherit pollution-damaged DNA that harms their health. In the meantime, the discovery is sure to increase scientists' worry about particulates, the microscopic soot particles emitted by factories, power plants and diesel-burning vehicles.

The good news: Air filters protected the mice.
