Air pollution from respirable particulate matter (PM2.5) could
be responsible for 10,000 to 30,000 premature deaths in Delhi — up to 80 deaths
each day — authors of an international study released on Tuesday indicated. Scientists
who conducted the study, published in the Environmental Science and Technology
journal, said most of these deaths were due to heart attacks and strokes, and
not very many because of respiratory diseases.
