The new estimates are based on the latest WHO mortality data from as well as evidence of health risks from air pollution exposures. This incorporated satellite data, ground-level monitoring measurements and data on pollution emissions from key sources, as well as modelling of how pollution drifts in the air. The new estimate is explained by better information about pollution exposures among the estimated 2. In the case of outdoor air pollution, WHO estimates there were 3.
Cross-sectional studies often show associations between diabetes and air pollution, although somewhat inconsistently.
A Canadian study found that exposure to nitrogen dioxide NO2 air pollution was associated with higher levels of diabetes in women, but not men. This study did not include other air pollutants, but instead considered nitrogen dioxide to be a marker of traffic-related air pollution.
These researchers used each individual's residence location to estimate air pollution exposures Brook et al. In a study from the Netherlands, researchers did not find consistent relationships between air pollution and diabetes, although there were some indications that traffic within a m buffer of the home address Dijkema et al.
A large study from the Netherlands, however, did find an association between long-term residential air pollution exposure and diabetes Strak et al.
A small study found that nitrogen oxides may be linked to impaired glucose metabolism diabetes and high fasting glucose levels in German women, although the results were not significant after adjusting for multiple other factors Teichert et al.25 March | Geneva - In new estimates released today, WHO reports that in around 7 million people died - one in eight of total global deaths – as a result of air pollution exposure.
This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk. The Global Conference on Air Pollution and Health, 30 October - 1 November is the first-ever global event to focus on both Air Pollution and Health.
Participants will include Ministers of Health and Environment and other national government representatives; representatives of intergovernmental.
Air, land, and water pollution caused 9 million premature deaths in , or 16% of all deaths worldwide.
About 92% of all pollution-related mortality is seen in low-income and middle-income countries, with the poor, marginalized, and young hardest hit by the health effects of the contamination.
An analysis of a new draft rule to regulate greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. power generation sector clearly demonstrates the dangers of air pollution, with up to 1, extra deaths per year expected from proposed changes to .
Environmental Pollution is an international journal that seeks to publish papers that report results from original, novel research that addresses significant environmental pollution issues and problems and contribute new knowledge to science..
The editors welcome high quality papers where the pollutants are clearly defined and measured and can be directly related to biological, ecological, and.
