In some cities of the world tourists will not breathe
• In what cities of the world tourists will not breathe
Air pollution kills nearly 3, 3 million people a year. Scientists say that by 2050 this number will double. The conclusions are made based on the number of content in the air particulate matter, abbreviated - PM 2, 5. Digital herein means the particle diameter in microns. These particles are present in the soot, smoke and exhaust gases, causing long-term health problems such as asthma and chronic lung disease.
Unfortunately, the level of air pollution today still a little worried about the governments of most countries on the world map. Life expectancy in some cities decreasing from year to year - but local people usually have nowhere to go. Today, the leaders of the "anti-rating of the air" are the 7 cities in the world, where the breathing literally almost nothing.
Lucknow, a town in northern India begins our list. People here are breathing a terrible mixture of exhaust and factory waste. A huge number of vehicles is practically not regulated by law, exacerbates the problem.
One of the most densely populated cities in Iran Khorramabad is the center of agriculture for the whole country. Probably, this is the main reason why experts find local air substantially unbreathable. The mortality rate is nearly 3, 5 times higher than the national average.
Rawalpindi, twin city of Islamabad, Pakistan's capital. Lack of a coherent system of public transport led to the collapse of production and operation of private cars. As a result, the exhaust gas amount is beyond all reasonable limits. However, at the end of this year the government is going to start the construction of the subway, which must somehow solve the problem.
This city is located in central India: it is not as large as the previous policies on our list, but the level of air pollution is increased too. This stems from the researchers see multiple core enterprises for the production of steel and aluminum.
The abundance of Indian cities in this listing should alert those who like to stay in this region. Gwalior is dirty so that here in every way, even the locals are trying to escape. The Government has not taken any measures to improve the situation.
Patna, the second largest city in the eastern part of India, is one of the main agricultural centers of the country. Irrational use of electricity, the abundance of private transport and the number of productions at the periphery make the air Patna almost unfit for breathing.
Rounding out our list of the majestic Beijing. This photo was taken in February of last year - and most of the time, the air here looks that way.
