According to TechTimes, the latest developments in worldwide air pollution is causing more than three million premature deaths around the world every year, and the figure could be double that by the year 2050, a study suggests.
Pollutants including ozone and fine dust particulate matter — particles so small they’re invisible to the naked eye — contribute to lung disease, heart disease and other serious health problems around the globe, researchers say.
Around three-quarters of the annual 3.3 million deaths occur in Asian, they note, with outdoor air pollution killing 1.4 million people annually in China and 650,000 in India.
“Strokes and heart attacks are responsible for nearly 75 percent of air pollution-related mortality,” says Jos Lelieveld, an atmospheric scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Germany and lead author of the study published in the journal Nature.
“They’re so small that they can actually get deep into the lungs, into the alveoli, and get into your bloodstream,” stresses New York University professor of population health and environmental medicine George Thurston, who was not involved in the study.
“These tiny chemical particles we breathe can get past the body’s immune system and penetrate deep into the lungs and bloodstream, and they are not naturally removed from the body’s airways,” he argues.
