American researchers report research letters in the environmental, that the University reported every year, around two million people die of the consequences of excessive air pollution of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (United States) with reference to the study that air pollution causes the death of 2.1 million people worldwide in one year alone. Particularly in South and East Asia, there are more and more deaths due to higher temperatures and heavily polluted air. In major cities such as Beijing, Singapore, Delhi, smog, which has become a major burden for many residents frequently arises. The so-called environmental performance index (EPI) (epi.yale.edu/epi2012/rankings), which is annually levied by the University of Yale, shows that Switzerland, followed by Latvia, Norway and Luxembourg has the lowest air pollution. Worst countries of Iraq, Uzbekistan and India cut off. Germany is ranked 11th by a total of 132 countries… In Europe alone around 420.00 died within a year, according to statistics the EU Environment Agency People in advance of the effects of particulate matter and a high concentration of ozone.

This particularly cars, agricultural and industrial produce large amounts of exhaust gases. The Environment Agency headquartered in Copenhagen reported that more than 90 percent of Europeans who live in large cities, are exposed dangerous emissions that endanger not only the health but also the ecosystem. Respiratory diseases are increasingly high air pollution can include respiratory problems, such as trigger asthma or heart and circulatory disease. Also, smallest particle of dust can enter until deep in the lungs and cause this way cancer. While higher asthma risk from air pollution is already occupied in children, new studies, which were funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, show now a higher potential of risk for adults.

Asthma is one of the most common respiratory infections and can be treated so far although doctors, a complete cure does not exist however. According to the study, 41 people on asthma became ill within a year almost 3000 investigated non-smokers who were exposed to a transport-related air pollution. An investigation of the London School of hygene shows also that up to six hours after inhaling gases from an increased heart attack risk. In the British medical journal declared the head of the investigation and epidemiologist Krishnan Bhaskaran, that air pollution accelerate heart attacks. During the investigation, the data were evaluated by nearly 80,000 heart attack patients in England and Wales. Julia Hamilton
