hundreds of thousands die, according to a study prematurely due to high load of fine dust. A origin of the risk was underestimated and comes in from the field and from the stables.
The number of premature deaths from exposure to fine dust is apparently much higher than previously thought. A previously unpublished study of the Mainz Max-Planck-Institute for chemistry, on the the ARD magazine Monitor reported States. Therefore, almost 120,000 people die in Germany each year prematurely due to fine dust - almost twice as many as previously thought. As the main cause of the problem, the study identifies the agricultural sector.
