Air Pollution Leads to How Many Deaths Per Year? - The Green Optimistic

Air Pollution Leads to How Many Deaths Per Year? - The Green Optimistic | Slash's Science & Technology Scoop | Scoop.it
Lung Cancer Cell, More Prevalent Thanks to Air Pollution Since the Industrial Revolution, associated with learning how to use fossil fuels to perform work,
Sascha Humphrey's insight:

For example, a recent study indicated that the United States spends some $18 billion annually, caring for asthma victims, the majority of whom live, and sometimes die, in areas of concentrated air pollution.


In spite of rising health costs associated with air pollution, the death rate seems to be falling, at least in some areas. Still, the number of deaths related to air pollution is staggering. According to a recent study, as many as 0.9 million people die every year from ozone exposure. The study went on to say that as many as 3.0 million deaths occur every year from PM2.5-related cardiopulmonary diseases and lung cancer.
