Question:
Dear Doctor, Am considering working in Moscow for a year. My question is, how bad are the air and water pollution problems? Is the air safe to breath? Any info you can provide woulld be helpful. Thanks in advance. Regards.
JL
Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry The air pollution is no worse than in any comparably large metropolis and compared to some, better, as large numbers of the population move by Metro (underground) rather than by polluting private car. For drinking water it's best to use bottled water, again, this by no means makes Moscow unique. With a bit of care and attention Moscow can be a very pleasant place to live.
