Areas of interest have ranged from diet and lifestyle to environmental pollutants. In many cases there is action  is an individual can undertake to minimise negative health impacts and increase quality-of-life. There are also some errors of concern which need to be considered in a broader context; areas  where the actions of only a single individual will not be able to have an impact on their own well-being and a direct fashion. One of these is the quality  of air. There are many influences on air quality, industrial pollution, personal habits such as smoking and transportation with the use of combustion engine. Some of these may be controllable  by the individual, an person may choose to stop smoking, they may also choose to move at an area where there is a high level of pollution. The latter of  these may not be an option for all individuals. At the same time as increasing interest in health there is also an increasing level of car ownership and a range  of social pressures or changes which are increasing the amount the road transportation is used. These influences have a negative impact on air quality with the release of a large
