Abstract


  • Picture the causes of air pollution in a major city and you are likely to visualise pollutants spewing out of cars, trucks and buses.

    For some types of air pollutants, however, transportation is only half as important as the chemicals in everyday consumer products like cleaning agents, printer ink, and fragrances, according to a study published today in Science.
