Increased risk of stroke related death linked to air pollution
Another negative of air pollution: more stroke deaths - interesting science news

Researchers have found out that those places which have poorer air quality have higher rates of deaths and shorter life expectancy. This is especially true if the fine particulate matter is higher than PM 2.5.

Burning of coal, biomass, kerosene as well as diesel engines produces this type of particulate matter and it is inhalable and hence can enter our blood circulation.

Those who are living in such places can benefit from reducing their exposure by avoiding major traffic during rush hours, keeping car windows down and circulating only the internal air of the car.
