Your en­vi­ron­ment, a silent killer

Down to Earth - - ON THE WEB -

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.
