Bad air deaths

The Sun-Herald

Sunday 3 September 2000
ABOUT twice as many people are killed each year in Europe by air pollution as die in road traffic accidents, according to research sponsored by the World Health Organisation published today in the Lancet.

Analysis of deaths in France, Austria and Switzerland shows 6 per cent of all deaths — around 40,000 a year — stem from air pollution, around half due to tiny particles in vehicle exhausts, particularly diesel.
