The scientists involved say the effect is real but stress the limitations of their work.

  • Very interesting post on B vitamins/air pollution hellvella. Being diagnosed with 2 autoimmune disease I am personally aware that air pollution is a massive trigger into flare up situations. I welcome all research that will work toward cleaning up the planet and improving the health of the nations.
