Benefits of cycling to work outweigh damage caused by pollution, study claims @cyclingweekly

A study by Cambridge University scientists has shown that you gain more health benefits from cycling to work than you sustain damage from the air pollution.
The levels of air pollution, especially in the UK’s biggest towns and cities, is often cited as a reason why people do not take two-wheeled transport to work and is blamed for causing 10,000 deaths per year.
The study, published in Preventative Medicine, claims that only one per cent of cities around the world would have air pollution levels high enough to negate the benefits of active travel.
