Air Pollution Reducing Global Life Expectancy By Three Years And Killing 8.8 Million People A Year


Air pollution is reducing global life expectancy by three years and killing 8.8 million people a year, a new study shows.


Studies show that air pollution is linked to lowered cognitive performanceheart failurekidney disease and poor bone health, as well as the development of other health problems such as lung cancer, stokes, and respiratory diseases.

Some research suggests that supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids may have cardio-protective effects against air pollution, and that eating a Mediterranean diet may similarly reduce its effects.

Particularly impressively, a study published in 2017 found that high-dose B vitamins have a strong protective effect against air pollution. Published in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) journal, the researchers showed that exposure to fine particulate matter of the type produced by burning fossil fuels in motor vehicles can be “completely offset” by a daily supplement of B vitamins. With the World Health Organization having estimated that 92 percent of the world’s population live in places where air pollution exceeds safe limits, the finding of this study has profound implications for public health policies worldwide.
