And this is just air pollution - it doesn't include any statistics for water pollution, food pollution, and GMOs. And when 3.2 MILLION die EVERY YEAR, how can anyone believe there has been no effect on those who have survived? There are no numbers, but I certainly believe that our mental health as a nation, and our epidemic of obesity, are tied in to these toxins, and there are probably other results as well.

What could the percentage of pollution related deaths be in China?

The preservatives in our food and all of the drugs that our doctors prescribe probably kill more. Some of the pollution is caused by creating both aforementioned items, so they are killing us in more ways than one.

We can cut green house emission by 3/4 by refusing to ever again eat another animal. Air, water fresh and ocean, soils, crops all will benefit, health improve, suffering end for trillions, and restoration of he Ways of Nature will result! he path of SPIRIT is NO HARM.

At the gas pump yesterday, I noticed on the Diesel pump it was a new, cleaner version of diesel, and mandatory for commercial trucks. Voluntary for others. That's good news, as I've lived next door to a freeway for Years. Tire residue alone leaves a black soot on a window sill in one day:(. Relieved to finally get an air cleaning furnace, after 35 years, working up to a biosphere:).

Noted, Thank you Cher.
