It's time for school and as dutiful parents, we carefully escort our children to the curbside to await that yellow school bus to safely deliver our kids to the classroom.

Although our children return home from school appearing safe and healthy, what we may fail to see is the real, physical damage that can take hold inside the deep recesses of our children's lungs due to diesel exhaust exposure.
