The pollution cause in 1 death in 6 in 2015

More than 155,000 people were killed by pollution in the U.S., but those deaths made up just 5.74% of the country's total. Researchers gauged the effects of air pollution (particle matter, toxic compounds), water pollution (contamination, unhygienic sanitation), and workplace pollution (toxins and carcinogens).

The report also insists on the economic weight of these lives cut short for the countries concerned: over 4,600 billion dollars each year, or the equivalent of 6.2% of global economic wealth. The medical journal called "tackle emergency situation" and to overcome "the myth according to which pollution would be an inevitable outcome of economic development". "However, WHO documents that the problem of ambient air pollution is widespread in low-income and middle-income countries and finds that 98 per cent of urban areas in developing countries with populations of more than 100,000 people fail to meet the WHO global air quality guideline for PM2.5 pollution of 10 ug/m3 of ambient air annually".

"For decades, pollution and its harmful effects on people's health, the environment and the planet have been neglected both by governments and the worldwide development community", it said.

"If you don't put a dollar value on your findings", Landrigan said, "if you can't show the minister of finance in a particular country that pollution is costing his country money and dragging his economy down.it's not sufficient to move the needle".

"What people don't realize is that pollution does damage to economies", Richard Fuller, the head of Pure Earth, an worldwide nonprofit that studies pollution impacts in low- and middle-income countries, told the AP.

It also topped the list of deaths linked to polluted air (1.81 million) and water (0.64 million). What people don't realize ... people who are sick or dead can not contribute to the economy.

Draymond Green's MRI On Knee Comes Back Negative
Draymond Green exited the Warriors' season opener with a strained left knee. "Somebody said we don't take defense seriously". In 76 games last season, he averaged 10.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.4 blocks.

Landrigan said the study found developing countries shouldn't sell out their population's health to achieve economic prosperity.

Regardless of a nation's prosperity, deaths from diseases caused by pollution were most prevalent among minorities and the marginalised.

And unlike many health crises, like the AIDS epidemic, where the answer isn't immediately attainable, many sources of pollution can be easily diagnosed and remedied. Carbon emissions from vehicles, power plants, mining operators and chemical producers are some of the known major pollutants. "We have already started taking action based on the recommendations made by the two groups".
