Cleaner Air Increases Life Expectancy

It might be good to know that the live expectancy rate of Americans has increased since three years. And what contributes to this is the cleaner air in US cities.

Well, even I felt amused to hear that American cities have cleaner air. I must show this news to all those people of the world who say that America is increasing the pollution in the world. This would definitely appeal that Americans are the world’s most environmental conscious people of the world.

Well there was a research conducted on how clean our air is, which showed good results. There was a significant decrease in the concentration of fine particles per cubic meter to 10 micrograms per cubic meter. This is just enough to increase the life expectancy to a round 7 months. The overall drop in the pollution resulted in increase of 15 percent in the life expectancy rate of 15 U.S cities.

And very soon, you don’t have to plan your vacation in distant beaches for fresh air. It will be readily available in the city you live in.
