    The Japanese have a big problem. The air in their cities is often heavily polluted. It is increasingly difficult to find a breath of fresh air anywhere in Japan.

    When residents of Tokyo want some clean air, they sometimes look for special oxygen machines along the sidewalks. A sign on the machine says, "Fresh Country Air. Please deposit 100 yen." The Tokyoite deposits .'his money, places a mask-over his face, and breathes deeply.

    This situation is unusual. However, pollution-free environments are disappearing rapidly. Says a well-known scientist, "Dirty air is the number one health hazard in our cities today."
