The lives of children around the globe was reduced to 20 months due to air pollution. This is evidenced by data research State of Global Air (SOGA, 2019), reports The Guardian.
We are talking about children who were born recently or will be born in the near future. According to the study, in 2017, air pollution has caused the death of every tenth person on Earth, which makes the problem much more dangerous than malaria or traffic accidents. Mortality from contaminants in the air is comparable to deaths from Smoking.
The worst situation is in South Asia where the life expectancy of children with dirty air has declined by 30 months. In Africa and South of Sahara, the rate is 24 months, where the air is dirty both outside and indoors.

In East Asia pollution cut short the lives of children in 23 months. But in developed countries, it is expected that this figure will not exceed an average of 5 months.
“The fact that children’s lives so greatly reduced was a real shock,” said Robert O’keefe, Vice-President of the Institute of health impacts, which prepared the report. “We have no magic bullet, but the government needs to take action”.
In addition, air pollution was the cause of 41% of global deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, 20% of type 2 diabetes, 19% of lung cancer, 16% from coronary heart disease and 11% of deaths from stroke.
As previously reported by the Focus:
- Chinese scientists have found that air pollution degrades the potency.
- Also, studies show that breathing polluted air were more dangerous than Smoking.
