and behavior[s]"[2] and is broadly associated with indie and alternative music, a varied non-mainstream fashion sensibility (including vintage 
and thrift store-bought clothes), progressiveindependent, or far-left political views, organic or artisanal foods, and alternative lifestyles.[3][4][5] 
Hipsters are typically described as affluent or middle class young Bohemians who reside in gentrifying neighborhoods.[6][7]"

Its findings suggest a link between air pollution and heart disease, respiratory problems and cancer."

News release on air pollution - 25 March 2014
"In new estimates released today, WHO reports that in 2012 around 7 million people died - one in eight of total global deaths
– as a result of air pollution exposure. This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution is now
the world’s largest single environmental health risk. Reducing air pollution could save millions of lives...
Risks factors are greater than expected."
