    Particles Carry Toxic Pollutants Far from Home

    Combining state-of-the-art atmospheric modeling with the latest measurements-based findings, researchers at PNNL found that toxic particles can last longer and travel much farther than previous models predicted. The new insights indicate an estimate of global lung cancer risk from these pollutants four times higher than previously thought.
