|So... different carcinogens? Do you have a key to cut and paste here?|

|Blue is for wood smoke, which we are by far the highest. Wood smoke is also a carcinogen. Just sayin. Glad we are low in most areas. Wood smoke in Tacoma is specifically caused by Tacomans, so theoretically, it is also something that Tacomans can fix. IMHO. |
The chart is on page 8.
We are by far the highest in wood smoke pollutant which has the second highest potential to cause cancer. Not to sure thats worth crowing about.
"This study identified 8 individual pollutants and pollutant mixtures with the highest contribution to
potential cancer risk, which are, in order, diesel particulate matter*, wood smoke particulate"
matter*, carbon tetrachloride, benzene, 1,3-butadiene, formaldehyde, naphthalene,
acetaldehyde, chloroform, and tetrachloroethene.

|Not so fast. If you recall the history of England, once the age of wood burning passed, the age of coal burning generated much more dangerous pollution. |
Here in Tacoma I don't want to even speculate on the consequences of the age of coal burning yet to come.
