Pollution Statistics across the World
According to a World Health Organization (WHO) Report released in May 2018, 9 out of 10 people today, breathe air containing high level of pollutants. It has also been revealed that every year, approximately 7 million people die due to ambient (outdoor) and household air pollution. The majority population is significantly exposed to the polluted air, containing fine particles, which not only penetrate deep into the lungs and cardio-vascular system but also increase the risk of heart disease, lung cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and respiratory infections, including pneumonia.
The State of the Capital
While the annual safe limit of PM10 (particulate matter in the air) set by WHO is 60 micrograms per cubic meter, the Capital of India - Delhi, exceeds that limit almost by five times. Delhi's air was found to have a heavy presence of PM10 particulate matter - 292 micrograms per cubic meter. The WHO report also concludes that Delhi has the worst air quality across all continents while India is host to 13 out of the 20 most polluted cities across the world.
