Is cycling (still) healthy?

The other day I was wondering, how healthy is it still to cycle in todays traffic? On my way to work I have to pass several road and construction works, often accompanied with gigantic dust clouds. And this is besides the diesel and petrol fumes from cars, busses, trucks,… The most annoying smell is that of a scooter driving in front of you, it’s so dominant I sometimes wait a few minutes before continuing my trip.
