World Health Organisation (WHO): 91 percent of the world's population lives in places that exceed the air quality guidelines of the World Health Organisation (WHO). Around 4.2 million deaths per year worldwide are attributed to air pollution, according to the WHO. The most dangerous pollutants in urban air are particulate matter, ground-level ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide.

Quality of that air can have an enormous impact on not only your health but on other aspects of your life. Nowadays polluted air can be found every where. This is hard to fathom, considering all the toxic fumes come from factories, machines, and automobiles. The air outside, without question, can be very heavily polluted, especially on high ozone days in hot weather and in urban areas with heavy traffic.

Health Effects: Air pollution has become the world's single biggest environmental health risk, linked to around 7 million deaths in 2012, according to a recent World Health Organization (WHO) report. The new data further reveals a stronger link between outdoor air pollution exposure and cardiovascular diseases, such as strokes and ischemic heart disease, as well as between air pollution & cancer. The effects of air pollution involve a large variety of illnesses, starting with the simple irritation of eyes, nose, mouth and throat or diminished energy levels, headache and dizziness, but also potentially more serious conditions, of which the most common are:

  • Respiratory and lung diseases
  • Asthma attacks
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease – COPD
  • Pulmonary & Mesothelioma – a particular type of lung cancer
  • Pneumonia & Leukaemia
  • Birth defects and immune system defects
  • Cardiovascular problems, heart disease and stroke
  • Neurobehavioral disorders - neurological problems and developmental de
  • Liver & other types of cancer – caused by breathing carcinogenic volatile chemicals
  • In children, this could include reduced lung growth and function, respiratory infections & aggravated asthma.
  • Heart disease & stroke are the most common causes of premature death attributable to outdoor air pollution
  • Diabetes and neurodegenerative conditions
