Your environment, a silent killer
The air you breathe, the water you drink and the surroundings where you work, play and sleep may go largely unnoticed on a day-to-day basis. But visible or not, they constitute your living environment. Now, new research from the World Health Organization ( WHO) shows how your environment could be killing you. According to a new WHO report, 23 per cent of all global deaths are linked to the environment. The data pertains to 2012 and is an update from the previous report in 2006.
