Bikers Who Commute Found to have more Soot in their Lungs?

Have bike, we will help save the earth...

A recent news feed reported that bikers have more soot in their lungs than walkers do.  Some reasons given are:  they are nearer the motor vehicles with emissions;  since they exert more, their lungs suck in more air and pollutants that go with the air. So commuter bikers, wear masks and beware.

Hmm I could feel it.  (I am a hypochondriac)  The tricycles and motorcycles we ride with on Sunday morning emit a lot of pollutants.

So biking is not that healthy after all; if you commute and if you ride with other motor vehicles.
