    Tell me why. Trump's cabinet has been discussed on this forum more than it needs to be.

    My guess is that the OP was originally posted on tif by mistake.

    I mistakenly posted it on TIF. I'm glad he pointed it out so I could report myself and ask that it be taken down.

    No I read it, it doesnt answer a single question, it doesnt explain who these 200,000 people were or how they died. How their lives were shortened. I even read the comments where 2 or 3 people asked the same question, without a specific answer so far.

    Overall Health Effects

    Many of us experience some kind of air pollution-related symptoms such as watery eyes, coughing, or wheezing. Even for healthy people, polluted air can cause respiratory irritation or breathing difficulties during exercise or outdoor activities. Your actual risk depends on your current health status, the pollutant type and concentration, and the length of your exposure to the polluted air.
    People most susceptible to severe health problems from air pollution are:
    • Individuals with heart disease - such as coronary artery disease or congestive heart failure
    • Individuals with lung disease - such as asthma, emphysema or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
    • Pregnant women
    • Outdoor workers
    • Children under age 14, whose lungs are still developing
    • Athletes who exercise vigorously outdoors
    High air pollution levels can cause immediate health problems:
    • Aggravated cardiovascular and respiratory illness
    • Added stress to heart and lungs, which must work harder to supply the body with oxygen
    • Damaged cells in the respiratory system
    Long-term exposure to polluted air can have permanent health effects:
    • Accelerated aging of the lungs
    • Loss of lung capacity
    • Decreased lung function
    • Development of diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and possibly cancer
    • Shortened life span

    Health Effects from Specific Pollutants
    Ground-level Ozone
    Ground-level ozone is formed when volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) react with the sun's ultraviolet rays. The primary source of VOCs and NOx is mobile sources, including cars, trucks, buses, construction equipment and agricultural equipment.

    Ground-level ozone reaches its highest level during the afternoon and early evening hours. High levels occur most often during the summer months. It is a strong irritant that can cause constriction of the airways, forcing the respiratory system to work harder in order to provide oxygen. It can also cause other health problems:

    • Aggravated respiratory disease such as emphysema, bronchitis and asthma
    • Damage to deep portions of the lungs, even after symptoms such as coughing or a sore throat disappear
    • Wheezing, chest pain, dry throat, headache or nausea
    • Reduced resistance to infection
    • Increased fatigue
    • Weakened athletic performance

    Particulate Matter (PM)
    Particulate Matter is a complex mixture that may contain soot, smoke, metals, nitrates, sulfates, dust, water and tire rubber. It can be directly emitted, as in smoke from a fire, or it can form in the atmosphere from reactions of gases such as nitrogen oxides.

    The size of particles is directly linked to their potential for causing health problems. Small particles (known as PM2.5 or fine particulate matter) pose the greatest problems because they can get deep into your lungs and some may even get into your bloodstream. Exposure to such particles can affect both your lungs and your heart.

    Scientific studies have linked long-term particle pollution, especially fine particles, with significant health problems including:

    • Increased respiratory symptoms, such as irritation of the airways, coughing or difficulty breathing
    • Decreased lung function
    • Aggravated asthma
    • Development of chronic respiratory disease in children
    • Development of chronic bronchitis or chronic obstructive lung disease
    • Irregular heartbeat
    • Nonfatal heart attacks
    • Premature death in people with heart or lung disease, including death from lung cancer


    Short-term exposure to particles (hours or days) can:


    • Aggravate lung disease causing asthma attacks and acute bronchitis
    • Increase susceptibility to respiratory infections
    • Cause heart attacks and arrhythmias in people with heart disease


    Even if you are healthy, you may experience temporary symptoms, such as:
    • Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat
    • Coughing
    • Chest tightness
    • Shortness of breath

    I don't think the MIT news page expects their audience to include people that don't think air pollution shortens life. common sense

    I am sure extreme cases of air pollution can do damage. In america where our air is good a clean (as shown on the real time map) there are not people killed by air pollution. MIT has no fact to support their findings. Its totally made up, or at least it appears that way based on this "study"

    Common sense should tell you that is non-sense.

    I'm just glad that now that we've concluded climate change is a hoax I can go back to celebrating pollution and contributing my fair share in the process.

    Yeah and they have no facts to back that up. You and I can read every newspaper from now until the day we die and we will never see anybody in the obituary who was killed by air pollution in america.
