Death from air pollution is rising

The world is so contaminated for the human health. According to a
study by WHO, residential energy use and
agricultural emissions lead
causes of air pollution deaths.
According to the World Health Organization Globally, more than 3 million
people die prematurely each year
from prolonged exposure to air
pollution. WHO also estinate that by 2050, there could be 6.6
million premature deaths every year worldwide due to air polution.

The study says the air we breathe out could be harming more
people than ever.

Chronic exposure to air pollution particles
contributes to the risk of developing cardiovascular and
respiratory diseases as well as
lung cancer.
"The total number of deaths due
to HIV and malaria is 2.8 million
per year," said Jos Lelieveld, a
professor at the Max Planck
Institute for Chemistry in
Germany and lead author of the
study. "That's half a million less
than the number of people who
die from air pollution globally."
Residential energy emissions —
from fuels used for cooking and
heating, especially in India and
China — had the largest impact
on deaths worldwide.
