Los Angeles Air pollution, Health hazards Los Angeles has some of the most contaminated air in the country. (It has won the award for being the “smoggiest city” in the United States for several years). Due to its high overall population density and traffic congestion, the city’s air is contaminated with toxic chemicals. Studies have shown that traffic-induced pollution is linked to increased likeliness of cancer, along with complications during pregnancy.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
