Don't Hold Your Breath: As disturbing as this is, I'm not really that surprised, judging from my past experiences on school buses. A new study shows that the pollution inside the bus is worse than the air out in the street. The exhaust is leaking into the cabin, and the kids are breathing it in.

This apparently isn't causing any immediate problems, such as carbon monoxide poisoning. But the long-term health effects on the children can't be good.

What's worse, if you read down later in the story, you find that children are still riding in buses that were built in 1975! So who knows what other fumes are still trapped in those vehicles from a bygone era ...
