How Gridlock Affects West Toronto's Air

Woman Holding Sign How Is The Air Quality In Yor Home

The area of West Toronto, like every other developed city, has its own share of the side effects of urbanization. One of these is the gridlocks that are fast becoming a regular sight on major Toronto highways. The stresses and delays caused by these gridlocks are minor when compared to the negative effects on human health. Especially during the summer months.

Poor urban quality is one of the world's subtle but deadly pollution problems and according to the International Energy Agency; air pollution has caused the death of millions of people worldwide in recent times. For West Toronto, studies have shown that the city's gridlock is increasingly harmful in terms of pollution. This damage is not limited to road users and motorists alone, but extends to the neighborhoods in Toronto and even suburbs.

For example, just from South Etobicoke alone, about five pollutants, including carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and benzene, were found to be present in toxic quantities. Once the polluted air is inhaled, that's the end. It gets into the human body through the lungs and wrecks havoc in the respiratory and cardiovascular system over time. For the brain, negative gaseous emissions compete with oxygen in the body and reduce the amount of oxygen available for the body and the brain to use. This is a cause of headaches for many. The heart is also at risk as many premature deaths have been linked to this.

The development of neurons and brain health can also be adversely affected in children, especially those that attend schools along major roads. Epidemiologic studies have found a relationship between traffic-generated air pollution and a wide range of adverse effects in children

Satellite images of the city show an awfully high level of pollution on major highways such as the QEW and 427 highways.

The pollution as a result of the gridlock can be attributed to the increasing population which is evident in the daily volume of road users and vehicles; great and small, on the highways.

This is not the beginning of the end for West Toronto but an indication of the need to educate city dwellers of the dangers inherent in unnecessary traffic congestion. It is also a call for the use of technological advancements to initiate a better transportation structure that will reduce greatly the undue use of cars.

"I noticed a difference..." - 5 out of 5 stars

I don't usually write these, but I just had to take a minute to say thank you. I had an appointment with Canaduct last week. Almost immediately after they left my home, I noticed a difference, particularly in my air. It has really improved! I cannot thank you enough for all of the hard work, and of course, the amazing results.
