  • Emissions from ocean-going ships contribute to approximately 60,000 deaths each year, mostly from heart and lung-related cancers.

  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), if you are one of the 18 million residents of Cairo, breathing air pollution daily is like smoking 20 cigarettes a day.

  • The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that a billion premature deaths occur annually as a result of air pollution, half of which are people living in developing countries.

  • Children breathe at a faster rate than adults, and as a result, they breathe in much more polluted air than an adult.
