- Toxic pollution, such as fine particulate matter, directly harms human health.
- Nontoxic pollution contributes to global heating, which consequently damages human health due to the negative effects of climate change.
- The present study shows a “strong correlation” between toxic and nontoxic pollution in specific countries.
- The study also highlights a list of 10 countries that are most at risk of climate change and toxic pollution.
- In a new study, researchers have demonstrated a “strong correlation” between toxic pollution, which directly damages human health, and nontoxic pollution, which contributes to global heating and climate change.
- In the study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, the researchers identified countries that the international community can effectively support to reduce the negative effects of both types of pollution.
