Among the pollutants measured were nitrogen oxide, Sulfur dioxide, and ozone. At. though sulfur dioxide is usually ,ued as an index of air poll- ution, Dr. Lane found an even more marked correlation bet- ween admissions and increases in nitrogen o'xiie.. During the perivd studied, there was no air-polldtion alert. The levels of pollution were from long-term respiratory dis- eases. The health costs of air pollution are estimated at $10 billion. Every year. When damages to property, vegetation, livestock, and met- erials are considered in the total toll of air pollution, the figure doubles to $20 billion.

If you are flying rapidly to a high altitude destination such as Mexico City, more than 7,000 feet, there are precautions you can take to prevent distress. Be- fore departure, get a good night's rest and avoid alcoholic beverages and heavy smoking. A good breakfast an hour or so before departure is all right, but avoid food during the trip. And avoid alcoholic drinks in flight. Reduce physical activity dur- ing the trip. Sit quietly as much as possible. After arrival in the high altitude area, go to bed for a few hours and eat very lightly. Indulge in only light physical activity tot the first 24 hours. Walk, don't run, if you have to climb steps to the hotel or lodge. Patients with certain heart and respiratory conditions may encounter more serious discom- fbrt by abrupt changes to high altitudes, itowever, physicians trove noted that most people with bean or lung problems who can move around and engage in moderate activity at sea level most often cat; tolerate altitudes of 7,000 to 8,000 feet without serious effects.
