Killer Mexican Smog Shortening Lives

Ironic timing for this article –it is the 60th anniversary of the smog in Donora Pa. In late October of 1948 the Monongahela River Valley town of Donora, Pennsylvania more than 7,000 (half the town) were sick or hospitalized- in a couple of days 20 people dropped dead.and over the following month 50 more would die.
