Head of World Health Organisation says 7 million people will die each year from toxic air


Seven million people a year will die from just breathing.

That from the head of the World Health Organisation.

Tedros Adhanom adds that billions of others will be harmed.

He's calling air pollution the "new tobacco" according to the Guardian.

It comes as over 90% of the world’s population suffers from toxic air.

The first global conference on air pollution and health will begin next week in Geneva.
