Lives Per Gallon: The True Cost of Our Oil Addiction
Lives Per Gallon: The True Cost of Our Oil Addiction by Terry Tamminen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is not an easy read.
.
Babies born to smokers have cancer-causing (non-natural) chemical compounds (such as benzene and toluene) in their umbilical cord blood before they are even born.

Car exhaust is just as bad for you as cigarette smoke. Keeping the windows closed won’t help. In some studies, inside car air is as bad or worse for your health than the air outside your car.

Riding the yellow school bus is especially unhealthy. Research has shown that a child riding inside a diesel school bus may be exposed to as much as 4X the level of toxic diesel exhaust as someone riding in the car in front of the bus.

Not going to finish right now because I have too many ‘have-tos.’
