Air pollutants kill
3.7 million people a year.
1,2 million people
dies in car accidents.
10 MINUTES IS THE TIME WE SPEND SEARCHING FOR A PARKING PLACE EVERY DAY, which makes 15 DAYS A YEAR.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 33 out of 50 most polluted cities in the EU are in Poland. The European Environment Agency (EEA) analyses show that about 47,000 premature deaths in our country are due to smog.
Cardiologists from the Silesian Center for Heart Diseases analysed data from Katowice:
On the days of smog alarm there is an increase by 6 percentage points in the number of deaths.
The number of deaths due to the heart and vascular diseases increased by 8 percentage points during this period.
More people also die within a dozen or so days after the announcement of the alarm.
The number of patients with heart attacks increased by 12 in hospitals.
Patients with cerebral stroke were more by 16 percentage points.
There was an increase by 14 percentage points in the number of patients in GP clinics.
ACT LOCALLY – THIK GLOBALLY
Everyone MUST breathe – you can reduce the consumption of unhealthy products by having an appropriate diet – this we have an impact on. But can we breathe less?
There is a lot of information in the media every day about victims of traffic accidents, but at the same time the information concerning the death rate due to the environmental damage is ignored.
25% of traffic in cities results from a search for parking spaces.
WHAT IS THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM
Quality of life
The solution to this problem is fuel economy, lower traffic fumes emission, less urban traffic, fewer traffic jams.
