This is How Bad Air Pollution of Today Can Affect Our Health And Daily Life
Air pollution may shorten lives by up to nine years
UK air pollution causes 50,000 early deaths a year, according to the environment audit committee
The statistic is enough to shock anyone into reducing their carbon footprint: 50,000 people a year could be dying prematurely in the UK due to pollution.
According to a six-month investigation by theenvironmentalaudit committee, air particles from burning fuel and inhaled deeply into the lungs could cut people’s lives short by up to nine years.
People living in large cities are at greater risk. In London alone, over 4,000 die a year from polluted air – more than are 2,600 deaths nationally due to roadtrafficaccidents.
The committee, which gathered their evidence from government ministers and medical experts, are shocked by how little is being done to address pollution and the national health repercussions.
‘Despite these considerable impacts on public health, very little effort is being put into reducing air pollution levels, compared to efforts to cut smoking, alcohol misuse and obesity,’ says committee chair, Tim Yeo.
