A new study says that air pollution can take five years off of your life, making it a bigger killer than smoking, car crashes or AIDS.

This comes from the University of Chicago’s Air Quality Life Index report. The report shows that some who live in places with the worst air quality, India and Southeast Asia for example, will lose five years off of their lives due to pollution, but the average citizen of the world loses 2.2 years. The researchers say that it is more crucial than ever for governments to implement stricter fossil fuel policies to save lives.
