Air Pollution and Public Health

Air pollution is a major cause of disease and death universally. An estimated 4.2 million premature deaths globally are linked to ambient air pollution, primarily from heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and acute respiratory infections in children. Pollutants with the strongest evidence for public health concern, include particulate matter (PM), ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and sulphur dioxide.  In children and adults, both short- and long-term exposure to ambient air pollution can lead to condensed lung function, respiratory infections and asthma.
