Tribune Reports Chicago Top Ten Worst City in US for Air Pollution

People living in Chicago and its nearby suburbs face some of the highest health risks in the nation stemming from toxic chemicals that come from industrial smokestacks, that's according to the Chicago Tribune. Apparently Cook county was ranked worst in the nation for dangerous air pollution and Chicago was among the ten worst cities in the US. The Tribune reports that the US environmental protection agency hasn't made its air pollution research more accessible to the public so the newspaper is posting the info on its own website.
