Venus orbits sun within huge band of dust, say scientists

Scientists have discovered that Venus circles the sun embedded within a huge band of dust that is 10-15 million kilometres high and stretches all the way around its orbit. The finding will help astronomers better understand the dust clouds within planetary systems so that they can be taken into account when examining planets outside our solar system.

The inner solar system is filled with dust between the planets, called the zodiacal cloud, which starts out at the asteroid belt and slowly drifts towards the sun.

If Venus' gravity effects the dust to form this ring why would earth not do the same?
