How old polluted air shortens people's lives?

the Dirty air significantly shortens the duration of our lives

The air Quality in most cities of the world, to put it mildly, disgusting. Every day we go outside to cool off, but in fact, inhaled car exhaust and other harmful substances. Needless to say, all this is harmful to our health — getting into our bodies, poisonous gases literally destroys our bodies. Scientists from the us state of Illinois does believe that dirty air is "the biggest risk to human health" and significantly reduces life expectancy. To find out how much dirty air affects the longevity of the people, they examined data collected from the global system the "air quality Index" (AQLI). The results were very disturbing — if people lived in more favorable conditions than now, they would quite managed to fulfill many of their dreams.

Alarming scientific results shared . According to the data collected, the air pollution that is observed in most of cities, shortens the life of people at least two years. And this is the best — according to the researchers, the residents are particularly heavily polluted India and Bangladesh reduce their life nearly ten years. This indicator can be considered relevant to China, the territory of which the vital decades of dirty air — the situation has improved only .

Such a pattern can be observed in India

Scientists believe that air pollution can harm the health of the people is stronger than seized almost the whole world is a coronavirus. According to the Creator of the system AQLI Michael Greenstone (Michael Greenstone), this does not mean that the coronavirus is not dangerous. He's sure fatal disease completely deserves the attention it is getting. Only now, if humanity with the same zeal began searching for a way to clean the air of pollutants, billions of people have lived a long and happy life.

Special attention should be paid to the above-mentioned India and Bangladesh, but don't forget about the Nepal Pakistan. According to the calculations of researchers in these regions of our planet over the last 20 years the air quality has declined by as much as 44%. And when you consider that people continue to drive cars with internal combustion engines, tons of throw away plastic debris and burn it in the future "freshness of Alpine meadows" we can not see. Consequently, people's health will continue to deteriorate, and the duration of life .

In a difficult situation and countries in South-East Asia. It is reported that with a population of approximately 650 million people and 89% of them live in areas with bad air. That dirty air poses a great danger to human health, agree and representatives of the world health organization. According to them, in 2016, 91% of the world's population lived in areas where the air pollution exceeded the values set in who guidelines.

Mankind will seagrassnet not only land and water but also air.

Clean air is strongly influenced not only by cars with exhaust fumes and factories with a whole mess of harmful substances, but also forest fires. In 2020, with this particular problem, but last year was downright turned up the heat. Smog from forest fires in Siberia reached right up to Moscow and more remote regions. Also fires were burning in the forests of the United States and Australia. The situation was so serious that fire . Yeah, if we were then watched by the aliens, they realized that the planet Earth things are worse than ever.

On the effects of air pollution on humans the studies are conducted regularly. For example, recently my colleague, Alexander Bogdanov told about how the city's air affects children in the womb. It turned out that if women are breathing dirty air during the first three months of pregnancy, the risk of delayed growth of the baby increases by many times. Moreover, air pollution affects children up to 4 years old air. Read more about this .
