    I was reading an article covering two studies that showed the brain health benefits of running are cancelled out when running in cities with air pollution:

    I jog 10k a few times a week in the local park that crosses over the m50. Does anyone know of a wearable air quality monitor? I'd love to see what the air quality is like.

    Wouldn't worry about fumes running over a motorway. They tend to be big wide roads, in open spaces and surrounded by fields so plenty of air flow.

    It's around traffic jams in city centres that you should be more concerned about air quality, where tall buildings mean that the air can't move and even if it does it just gets replaced by dirty air from the next street over.
