Re: Nitrogen dioxide in Britain’s cities kills 7,000 people a year
This is the usual agenda driven reporting which translates life expectancy due to all causes into deaths.
The data also relies on whole life exposure.
Some years back the department of the environment or whatever it was called, commissioned an impressive neutrally worded report looking into pollution and reported that no where in the Uk were the levels above the "safe" threshold except briefly (during rush hour) in some places at some times.
I shall have to dig this out but what it actually reported was the change in life expectancy due to changes in the levels of pollutants.
Far from 7000 deaths a year it most probably (from my reading of it which may be flawed) a loss of a couple of weeks of life expectancy.
