Air pollution is a major problem across the Asia Pacific region, responsible for over a million premature deaths each year. Consumers are understandably highly concerned and looking for solutions, with Vitamin C and Vitamin E pills increasingly being embraced for the purpose.
Where Breathing Is Hazardous To Your Health
The economies of Asia may have boomed in recent years, but this has not come without a price tag. Much of the cost is being paid by the Asian environment, with pollution becoming a key issue across Asia. Studies now indicate that the ubiquitous smog of Beijing and elsewhere across northern China is cutting over half a decade from the average life expectancy in the region, with other studies claiming air pollution was linked to 1.2 million deaths in China in 2010 alone. Other studies meanwhile suggest that the “Asian Brown Cloud” is responsible for the deaths of half a million Indians each year. Air quality amongst much of China and India is now considered either “hazardous” or “very unhealthy.” Consumers across the Asia Pacific region are understandably highly concerned about pollution – according to a poll by the Pew Research Centre, 47% of Chinese consider air pollution as a “very big problem” in 2013 up from 36% in 2012 - and are searching for solutions.
