Pollution is now a greater threat than Ebola and HIV, the World Health Organisation warns

Pollution is now a greater threat than Ebola and HIV and is responsible for one in four deaths among children aged under five, the World Health Organisation has warned.

Worldwide, more than 1.7 million children’s deaths were attributable to environmental hazards such as air pollution and contaminated water, according to report published on Monday.

The damning new research, which reveals the growing threat posed by global pollution, found that the most common causes of child mortality – diarrhea, malaria and pneumonia – are being exacerbated by pollution.
