2 million deaths caused by air pollution every year (July 12, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From North Carolina - A new report published in Environmental Research Letters finds that around two million deaths a year are caused by air pollution. Researchers used multiple climate models to simulate the levels of ozone and fine particulate matter in the years 1850 and 2000. Researchers then used a host of epidemiological studies to determine how these levels of air pollution would affect global mortality rates. They estimated that over 2 million deaths are linked to human-caused increases in fine particulate matter, and nearly 500,000 deaths a year are caused by human-caused increases in ozone
