10 U.S. Cities With the Most Dangerous Air to Breathe

Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Well-known for its Amish population, Lancaster experiences occasional spikes in short-term particle pollution (9 times per year on average), even if they rely on horse-and-buggy transportation. “Nearby coal-fired power plants are partly to blame for the region’s air quality problems, Lancaster Online reported.”

 

Fortunately, the city experienced 47 fewer high ozone days than it did in 1996. And annual levels of particle pollution are dropping, and this is encouraging.
