WHO: 7 Million People A Year Die From Air Pollution

14

An estimated 7 million people face an early death each year from air pollution, according to a new report by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Among those deaths, 21 percent are due to pneumonia, 20 percent are from strokes, 34 percent are caused by heart disease, 19 percent are from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and 7 percent are from lung cancer.

Toxic pollution affects the vast majority of the world’s population, according to the report, with nine out of 10 people exposed to dangerous levels of toxicity. The poor and other vulnerable populations are at the highest risk of breathing such pollution.

  1. CHEMTRAILS. USA Government, ADMITS secretly SPRAYING POISON on us!!!
    United Nations Exposes Chemtrails 100% PROOF We Are Being Poisoned
    The truth is the government is spraying deadly chemtrails in hopes of population reduction. Furthermore they have been known to use chemtrails as biological testing agents on the populace; all while claiming they are nothing more than mere vapor.

    • Actually, it’s Chelm trails, i.e. traces left by extraordinarily silly people. A prime example is the above post.

      • It’s because of ostriches like you that Bush was able to execute 9/11 murdering 3,000 US citizens. Evidence of explosives was found at site of terror attack.

        • Only idiots still believe anything happened on 9/11. It was all a hologram, done with the complicity of President Elvis.
          BTW, how’s the weather in Chelm?

          • Sad that Jews can be so closed-minded, sooo naive, sooo gullible, sooo brainwashed and wouldn’t move from cnn.

            B”H for people like post #1 who are opening the eyes of Klal Yisroel.

          • Trollunatic approves of his own posts – what a shock.
            (Probably a troll – even lunatics don’t believe each and every crazy theory floating around. Almost definitely not Jewish, either. Perhaps he’s mad now that someone told him the Easter bunny isn’t real?)

  2. I really agree with this and wish more would be done. Its the most likely cause of Cancer. That and the other toxic things we ingest in our bodies unknowingly, such as plastic remnants and preservatives.

  3. It appears every country is worried about the air and doing something about it, but Why doesn’t any one get on China’s back, the picture above looks like China on a ordinary day. You will also notice when they take pictures of Chinese people they always have white surgical masks on their face. If you take a picture of most western cities you will not be seeing the picture above or people wearing white surgical masks. They worried about everyone but the true offenders of the air, WHY???? If the poll is true 7 million are dying every year why are we worried about earths over population???

  4. When we think of the word “pollution,” we often think of images, like the photograph here, of large factories with tall smokestacks billowing up towering thick clouds of dark-grayish-brown-colored poisonous soot. We also think of images of the lower sections of those factories, where their waste pipes are spewing out thick uchy brownish-orange sludge into the nearby lagoons.

    Needless to say, these certainly are very correct images of gravely serious pollution. At the same time though, we need to further realize that there are also situations of gravely equally serious — maybe even MORE serious — pollution that are much closer to home and even RIGHT INSIDE our homes!

    These are in the wide array of numerous home & garden products we commonly use to get rid of “unwanted” organisms: Bug sprays, insect repellents, ant poisons, roach killers, weed killers, etc. Many of them we ourselves buy at hardware stores and supermarkets and spray them at needed locations around the house and yard. When the amount of roaches and/or other bugs is heavy, we call professional exterminators who come in and spray even stronger chemicals.

    ALL of these modern insecticides and herbicides and other pesticides ARE SEVERELY DEADLY POISONS!! The chemists who formulated them obviously had ONE goal in their formation: TO DESTROY LIFE!! Whether it is an ant or a beetle or a stalk of a weed, the pesticide’s chemical structure was specifically designed to end that ant’s or that beetle’s or that weed’s life!!

    Now the theory of their use is that, yes, the pesticide does kill (for example) the ant; however, an ant is an extremely tiny creature, so it is fully understandable that even just a tiny amount of the pesticide poison will be enough to overwhelm and kill it. But a human being is (relatively) an extremely large creation, many countless thousands of times bigger than an ant. So that tiny bit of pesticide that was more than enough to kill the ant will obviously not be anywhere near enough to kill a person.

    The problem though, is that, yes, the (relatively) small amounts of pesticides that are used to kill little insects are not enough to actually KILL big people. However, those same small amounts of pesticides could still well be enough to CAUSE DAMAGE to people!

    For example, please see https://usrtk.org/pesticides/glyphosate-health-concerns-about-most-widely-used-pesticide/. The write-up there discusses the very well known commonly used weed killer called “Roundup”; its main chemical ingredient is “glyphosate,” which the World Health Organization itself categorizes as a probable cause of Yenem Machla. (Click on the several links there to see official documents on the subject.)

    Please also see a good comprehensive article on the subject with an extensive documented list of sources at http://www.sustainablebabysteps.com/dangers-of-pesticides.html. The article relates several professional scientific studies which showed clear links between pesticide use and many of the major forms of Yenem Machla. Further studies showed clear links between pesticide use and ADHD/Hyperactivity — which is certainly also an emerging debilitating plague among today’s children. More studies showed indications of pesticide use as factors in several other serious disease conditions.

  5. This whole discussion is a mute point. I got my flu shot so I’m protected and will live forever. Pass me the cigarettes please.
