    In a study published last week, a team of scientists in Canada found that snow in urban areas soaks up the toxic and cancer-causing nanoparticles that are found in car exhaust.
    The snow appears to very effectively remove those particles from the air, but they stay embedded in the snow, making it dangerous to your health, if you decide to take a bite.

    Congratulations. Scientists have discovered what every Canadian five-year-old knew fifty years ago.
