Micro-blog, pollution

Ryan here.  Not on Romans.  Just a micro-blog to capture some stuff on pollution.

(1) Fertility.  This article is sad, but cracks me up (read its first line...).  By the numbers: 33%, the number of Shanghai men whose s. banks meet the WHO standard.  3 and 12.5 %.  The infertility rates in China in 1992 and 2012 respectively.  (Confirms this article.)

(2) Life expectancy. This article perpetuates the research that 10 microns improvement in a city's AQI adds 0.6 years to its inhabitants life expectancy.

More to come: Heart disease and cancer.  Will find scary articles later :) ...
