Doctors have counted how many years of life dirty air takes away


It is no secret that air pollution takes away years of life. As broadcasts "News of Mail.RU", scientists have counted as far as life expectancy is reduced because of this factor in different parts of the world. So, air pollution reduces the average expected life expectancy on Earth approximately by a year, in the most polluted countries of Asia and Africa - for one and a half-two years, and in Russia - it is slightly more, than for nine months.

Is about pollution by particles less than 2,5 micrometers in size. They can provoke pulmonary diseases, cardiovascular system and premature death. The accepted safe norm of pollution are 10 micrograms of particles on cubic meter of air. He can be observed in a number of the developed countries. However, statistically, 95% of the population of Earth living in the cities breathe strongly polluted air.

the Texas University has analysed the statistics for 2016 concerning 185 countries. It has appeared, on average the pollution exceeding a safe limit reduced the average expected life expectancy by 1,03 (smoking takes away 1,82 years, bad quality of drinking water - 0,57 years, unhealthy food - 2,67 years).

Is remarkable: in the countries with rather clean air (the USA, the European Union countries, Australia) air pollution took away several months of life. In 42 countries (mainly Asia and Africa) pollution by particles will take away over a year lives. The most difficult situation is noted in the Southern Asia. Here dirty air is more dangerous than all types of cancer combined.
