Air pollution in India is killing 100,000 children under five every year, damning study finds


The noxious air hanging over India's towns and cities kills more than 100,000 children under five every year, a damning study published Wednesday for World Environment Day found.


The State of India's Environment (SoE) Report found air pollution is responsible for 12.5 per cent of all deaths in the country - painting a bleak picture of the environmental record of recent Indian go nments.


The report showed air pollution kills an average 8.5 out of every 10,000 children in India before they turn five.


The risk is higher for girls with 9.6 out of 10,000 girls dying before five as a result of the high levels of air pollution.



The report put out by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), also found 86 per cent of Indian water bodies were 'critically polluted'. It added the country's progress in renewable energy was 'dismal'.


It is not the first report to paint a dire picture of India's environment. Last year a UN report found 14 of the world's 15 most polluted cities were located in the Asian nation.

As India has a space program, it could be diverting that money into this problem for starters.
