Most of the world breathes in polluted air

In a recent article published by CNN, findings about air pollution have been brought forward. The World Health Organization (WHO) has found that almost everyone breathes in polluted air according to an air quality map. A staggering 92% of the worlds population is in areas that fail to meet WHO's guidelines. This is a major concern, seeing as pollution as multiple affects on internal health of ones body. The new air quality map was created with data that looks at particulate matter, found in air around the world. The most dangerous PM, 10, is seen all over the world on the map from the data they collected, some areas even exceed that threshold.
