  • Delhi tops most polluted mega cities list: WHO

    Delhis air is the worst among world mega cities, the World Health Organisation (WHO) confirmed recently, even as IndiaSpend’s #breathe network of air-quality sensors reported fine-particulate-matter (PM2.5) levels were almost four times above daily safe levels, on average, for the seven-day period from Sept.22 to 28, 2016. For long-term exposure, these 24-hour levels are nearly 11 times ...

  • Mesothelioma researchers study the risk associated with environmental asbestos exposure

    Researchers out of Japan recently conducted a study to assess the risk of developing mesothelioma as a result of general environmental exposure to asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral that has toxic effects in humans. Found naturally all over the world, asbestos was heavily mined and used in thousands of products throughout the 20th century. A number of industries, such as the construction, ...

  • New insight into improving air quality measurements

    Researchers from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and King's College London have identified a mechanism which is responsible for under-reporting of peak nitrogen dioxide concentrations at some air quality monitoring stations, and the best ways to minimise this. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is an air pollutant formed when fuels are burned, ...
