By now it is clear that we’re headed straight into the vortex of a national public health emergency and that our children are the most deeply affected.

Every day, I find new studies that validate this fact, such as the one in the Yale Global Health Review which says that Delhi’s children are the most vulnerable to the toxic effects of polluted air, resulting in decreased quality of life and increased mortality rates.
