Abstract: Air pollution is an invisible killer that is prevalent all around us, preying on all age groups. From smog hanging over cities to smoke inside homes, air pollution poses a major threat to health and climate. The combined effects of outdoor and household air pollution cause about 7 million premature deaths every year, largely as a result of increased mortality from stroke, heart disease, COPD, Lung Cancer and acute respiratory infections.
