Whynot: Breathe Sulfuric Acid in Fog?

Some people ask why. Some ask Whynot. Today we celebrate the work of researcher J.D. Whynot:

Short-Term Respiratory Effects of Sulfuric Acid in Fog: a laboratory study of healthy and asthmatic volunteers,” Avol, E.L. ; Linn, W.S. ; Wightman, L.H. ; Whynot, J.D. ; Anderson, K.R. ; Hackney, J.D, J. Air Pollut. Control Assoc., March 1, 1988. The authors explain: “To explore short-term respiratory health risks from acid-polluted fog, 22 normal and 22 asthmatic adult volunteers were exposed in an environmental control chamber to light fogs.”
