News Briefs

Dear Editor,

I read the article in the latest edition of the NIH Record, entitled "Bad Air Days." I am thankful for the efforts that NIH is taking to improve our lives, and will seriously consider the suggestions given. However, some proactive measures are in order. For instance, electric vehicles are available and being used by various municipalities and private companies. Likewise, natural gas is much less toxic and polluting than diesel fuel. One would think that if a small city such as Boise, ID, could convert all of its city buses to natural gas, so too could the National Institutes of Health. It would show the rest of the country that the NIH cares.

Dr. Larry Shotland, NIDCD
