Well, damn.  Just the news we all needed.  I'm so glad we dodged the apocalyptic smoke bullet this year.  A friend in Anchorage has been sending me pictures that look like the air is made of mud.

More air pollution means more deaths, even at low levels of air pollution and short exposures to it, according to the study, which measured particulate matter and daily death rates in 652 cities in 24 countries over the course of 30 years. It is the largest international study on the short-term impacts of air pollution on death conducted to date, and was published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

...

Balmes adds, a relatively small risk that affects the entire population can be just as important in terms of public health as a stronger risk factor that not everybody experiences [like smoking].
