Air pollution leads to premature birth and kills children. It causes asthma, strokes, heart attacks and dementia. In her book, ‘Choked,’ Beth Gardiner describes a deadly global health problem with some 7 million victims annually worldwide. She argues that mitigation requires a change in priorities from private profit to public health.
