UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Chemistry in Germany have found that air pollution can be considered the major factor in the death of people today.
The researchers found that air pollution is the most serious threat to people’s lives and that the resulting diseases annually kill 8.8 million people.
“According to the World Health Organization, the death toll from smoking is 7.2 million people per year, which means that current air pollution is a serious risk to people’s lives,” scientists say in an article in the European Heart Journal.
According to the researchers, air pollution causes Europe’s average life expectancy to fall by two years. Previous studies have shown that as a result of air pollution, more than 300,000 Europeans die. This figure is currently 790 thousand people annually.
The researchers confirm that air pollution affects even the health of unborn babies. It affects mainly the aorta and umbilical cord vein, which undermines the cardiovascular condition of the fetus and later is reflected in its size.
It should be noted that the impact of polluted air in the body caused by solid minutes diameter of about 2.5 microns.
The concentration of these solid minutes allowed in Europe is 25 micrograms per cubic meter of air. While the World Health Organization allows the concentration of 10 micrograms per cubic meter.
