World Health Organization Concerned About Air Pollution
The World Health Organization has made recent discoveries that have caused them concern about air pollution.
The World Health Organization has determined that air pollution is now known to be the leading cause of lung cancer and cited that air pollution “caused at least 223,000 deaths in the year 2010, alone.”
This discovery has caused the organization to press the need to reduce air pollution from emissions such as transportation, industrial, agricultural emissions, and more.
While the World Health Organization is concerned with air pollution causing lung cancer many other organizations are working to prove that air pollution also causes increased allergies, as well as, the increase of infectious diseases.
The Environmental Defense Fund shows that tick-borne Lyme disease is easier to spread with warmer climates. They also believe that rising water temperatures increase the spread of Cholera.
