Environmental Science Factsheet: 168. Diesel Fumes, Asthma and Cancer on Oxford Street

Description

Defra – the department for environment, food and rural affairs estimate that air pollution reduces life expectancy in the UK by an average of six months. The most important air pollutant causing damage to health is particulate matter (PM) – particles mostly emitted from vehicle exhausts and chimneys or formed in the air from reactions between other pollutants. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that there is no safe exposure level to PM.

This Environmental Science Factsheet:
• Summarises the causes and health effect of PMs and diesel fumes.
• Summarises the results of an investigation into particulates and exhaust fumes in central London.
• Provides examples of the type of exam questions that have come up recently on this topic.
