Air pollution may have killed 30,000 Americans in a single year
from New York Post
Air pollution has been linked to more than 30,000 deaths in the United States in a single year — with low income areas the hardest hit, a new study suggests. The research, from Imperial College London, estimates particle pollution emitted by cars and power plants may have been responsible for 30,369 deaths in 2015 — the most recent year air quality data was available. The study, published in the journal
, established a link between cardio-respiratory diseases and excess particulate matter pollution — tiny, inhalable particles that can worsen certain diseases when they enter the blood stream.
