The World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that in 2012 7 million people died due to air pollution. This is one-eighth of the total number of deaths per year. The WHO writes: “This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk. Reducing air pollution could save millions of lives.”.
As technology evolves, air pollution can be measured better and there is increasing awareness about the diseases caused by air pollution. This makes the new figures more reliable and more accurate.
Air pollution causes many premature deaths, but it also results in health costs going up worldwide. Air pollution is after all causing cardiovascular diseases, strokes, COPD, asthma, lung cancer and acute respiratory infections in children.
