    Well Isn't that part of the reason why the LA area has some of the highest risks of cancer? The air pollution trapped in an autocratic valley + the lack of rain def doesn't help... People call it good weather.

    It is also caused by unneeded sprawl that is horribly overdependant on automobiles. Similar conditions exist in Seoul, South Korea so Los Angeles is not alone. The worst is Mexico City, imagine breathing in their poisonous, polluted air on a daily basis.
