If the science is in, why are we not testing more CO2 absorption – a better way to test the toxicity of air pollutants?

A top Toronto, Ontario Health official is questioning city health policy.

FOX’s Jessica Rosenthal reports:

Toronto has implemented what they call a massive policy on air pollution – it calls for 20 times the amount of testing of exposure levels.

The official said only one in five of the 41 potentially dangerous air pollutants tests are done and one in six of the solutions to reduce pollution are not even tested.

The official said the affected city is all monitored by a government official at the commission on environmental toxicology.

City officials say sometimes there is a problem with the air testing.

Statistics show we all breathe an average of 100,000 times a day. It takes less than one second to inhale any one of those loads.

And some of those toxins from the atmosphere may be absorbed by the skin – so that’s why this team from Good Samaritan says it’s crucial for everybody to get regular skin checks.

FOX’s Brooke Baldwin reports:

Good Samaritan skin care is quickly becoming the place for every body.

James O’Brien says being skin cancer survivor, he has seen a rising number of people from every age and socioeconomic level getting checked out.

He says one of the big warning signs is a skin rash.

“Any kind of inflammatory rash that spreads.”

O’Brien urges those who notice any kind of red, raised skin to get it checked.

“To be smart about your skin you need to check it every few months.”

Widespread illnesses from something as simple as a spider bite can be life threatening.

A surgeon warns for those who work in the fields, that the kinds of rat-traps used for maintenance are just traps, and can harm users in many different ways.

Most people aren’t allergic to the insect’s venom, some have symptoms, including severe headache, vomiting, and numbness of the hands and feet.
