From taxi tailpipes in Paris to dung-fired stoves in New Delhi, air pollution claimed seven million lives around the world in 2012, according to figures released Tuesday by the World Health Organization. More than one-third of those deaths, the ...   
25/3/2014
Air pollution has become the world's largest environmental risk, killing an estimated 7 million people in 2012, the World Health Organization says. That means about 1 out of every 8 deaths in the world each year is due to air pollution. ...
