i wonder when the chinese gvt will take real decision. It's sometimes unbelievable, drink hot water not cold water, and blabla to be healthy, but what are they waiting for? that all their childrens have lungs problems? or they hope that grand pa die faster? or hope that we "laowai" we leave the country faster?
it's really an urgence now...
OP, you are amazingly creative and considerate for sharing your journals about the air in beijing. I am really touched.

I don't know about you, but the apartment complex I live in is full of old people. Real, live old people who managed to make it to their 70s, 80s, whatever after decades of breathing Beijing air.
But hey, if the air is too hard on your little baby-lungs, by all means, exit the country as swiftly as possible.

to be very touchy is not solving the problem...
pollution effect on Human health
Overview of main health effects on humans from some common types of pollution. Adverse air quality can kill many organisms including humans. Ozone pollution can cause respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, throat inflammation, chest pain, and congestion. Water pollution causes approximately 14,000 deaths per day, mostly due to contamination of drinking water by untreated sewage in developing countries. An estimated 700 million Indians have no access to a proper toilet, and 1,000 Indian children die of diarrhoeal sickness every day. Nearly 500 million Chinese lack access to safe drinking water. 656,000 people die prematurely each year in China because of air pollution. In India, air pollution is believed to cause 527,700 fatalities a year. Studies have estimated that the number of people killed annually in the US could be over 50,000. Oil spills can cause skin irritations and rashes. Noise pollution induces hearing loss, high blood pressure, stress, and sleep disturbance. Mercury has been linked to developmental deficits in children and neurologic symptoms. Older people are majorly exposed to diseases induced by air pollution. Those with heart or lung disorders are under additional risk. Children and infants are also at serious risk. Lead and other heavy metals have been shown to cause neurological problems. Chemical and radioactive substances can cause cancer and as well as birth defects.
