Air pollution threatens the health of people in many parts of the world. New estimates in reveal that 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants. Both ambient (outdoor) and household (indoor) air pollution are responsible for about 7 million deaths globally per year; in the Western Pacific Region alone, around This paper-a product of Development Economics Research Group-is part of a larger effort in the group to examine the benefits and costs of pollution control. The study was funded by the Bank's Research Support Budget under research project Measuring the Health Effects of Air Pollution in Developing Countries: The Case of Delhi, India (RPO ).
Air pollution has also been associated with a range of other health risks beyond lung disease, including heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, and even urinary and bladder cancer. In , a study published in The Lancet found that long-term exposure to air pollution contributes to the progression of heart disease by accelerating atherosclerosis, a major cause of heart attack and stroke. This book aims to strengthen the knowledge base dealing with Air Pollution. The book consists of 21 chapters dealing with Air Pollution and its effects in the fields of Health, Environment, Economy and Agricultural Sources. It is divided into four sections. The first one deals with effect of air pollution on health and human body organs. The second section includes the Impact of air pollution Cited by:
effects in air pollution–health associations among children may be more complicated, because lung function growth rates (critical periods for pollution effects) differ by sex (Berhane et al. ).

Effects of air pollution A variety of air pollutants have known or suspected harmful effects on human health and the environment. In most areas of Europe, these pollutants are principally the products of combustion from space heating, power generation or from motor vehicle traffic.
How air pollution affects your health The consequences of dirty air are far-reaching. It negatively affects children’s brain development; adults are less productive at work. The book concludes with discussions on how to estimate the effects of air pollution on health and approaches to establish standards for clean air and to reduce air pollutants.
