You’d probably never guess what the world’s biggest killer is.
It’s not heart disease… Or cancer… Or malaria… Or war.
It’s not even COVID-19.
A study in the journal The Lancet found that pollution causes an estimated 9 million premature deaths a year. That’s 15 times more than all wars and terrorism combined.
It’s eight times more than COVID-19.
It’s three times more than malaria, AIDS, and tuberculosis combined.
