Most people living in European cities are exposed to poor air quality. Latest estimates by the European Environment Agency (EEA), show that fine particulate matter continues to cause the premature death of more than 400 000 Europeans annually.

Socioeconomically disadvantaged populations often have higher exposures to particulate air pollution, which can be expected to contribute to differentials in life expectancy. We examined socioeconomic differentials in exposure and air pollution-related mortality relating to larger scale (5 km resolution) variations in background concentrations of selected pollutants across England.

Ozone pollution has been worsening in Beijing and its neighbouring cities, a problem that can lead to serious health problems, a new study has found.

This paper presents updated results for the cost of ambient air pollution in 41 countries: the 6 major emerging economies known as the BRIICS – Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa – and the 35 member-countries of the OECD.

Deadly ozone has raised its ugly head in Delhi and NCR and without a time bound implementation strategy and preventive action this can deepen into a serious public health crisis.

Already dealing with the high particulate matters in the air, the national capital this summer has witnessed an alarming build-up of ozone, a Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) study said on

Delhi has witnessed significant ozone build-up this summer, adding to the public health risk -- shows a latest analysis done by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE). Building up to the World Environment Day, CSE has analysed the real-time air quality data available from the key monitoring locations of Delhi Pollution Control Committee for the summer months of 2016 and 2017. This shows ozone pollution in the city is worsening progressively with the onset of summer.

Air pollution has increased significantly in the last 25 years, and that’s having health consequences especially in low- and middle-income countries, according to a new Global Burden of Disease (GB
