How important is this. Right now I live in the northeast and all the rankings have my city low in air quality. Is it worth it to move to a city that ha much higher quality air? Does anyone have links to studies?

You can say this about everything.

Their car was human-powered! "Let's ride with the family down the street. Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet!"

Just talking about cars: Let's see, air in the paleolithic age had few exhaust fumes. Didn't Fred Flintstone have a car pulled by dinosaurs or something?

I live in a rural area of Spain, but of course families have at least one car, if not two. I avoid the main thoroughfares, built for mules and donkeys really because cars are always passing. The air gets smelly...

This is one of my pet beefs, air.

I think it is impossible not to see that the air being breathed in cities is incredibly polluted and cancer-causing. So I do think that (clean) air is vitally important for health.

Air quality inside most homes built today can be worse than outdoor pollution. Moving may not solve your problem unless your home is very drafty.

Everything is a trade-off. You may find someplace with very clean air, but the water is polluted, or it's so remote you don't have access to good food, or some other drawback that influences your life negatively.

air quality is very important. Some of my friends have lived their younger years in villages. i find them to be strong overall with good health. While those living in the cities or high pollution areas have less strength. This is irrespective of gym.

Getting an air filtering plant can help at least in your home, maybe on your desk at work http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_air-filtering_plants

If you have any respiratory problems, it could be very important.

I would figure it would be much more worth it to move to more rural area, from common sense alone. However, the implications for its value are much less in this modern society whereas polution is omnipresent.
