air pollution I have never read or heard of a document signed by a doctor where it is said that the patient died of air pollution. It is a next try of the environmental lobby to mislead the public opinion in Europe.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA) and for sharing your views.

The EEA is the EU agency responsible for providing information on the European environment. The aim of the EEA is to ensure that decision-makers and the public are kept informed about the state and outlook of the environment. The EEA collects environmental data from the Member Countries, other EU institutions and international organisations. Based on this information, we produce reports on various environmental topics. Our main report, published every 5 years, is the State and Outlook of the Environment in Europe (SOER). Find the latest version here: . The EEA is an independent agency not influenced by any environmental lobby. If you would like to know more about what we do, please see:

We believe that air pollution leads to premature deaths due to stroke, heart disease, lung cancer and chronic respiratory diseases caused by exposure to air pollutants. This statement is backed up by reliable studies and data from the World Health Organization. Please see:

The EEA recently published a study entitled “Healthy environment, healthy lives” that highlights how the quality of Europe’s environment plays a key role in determining our health and well-being. You may access the report via the following links:[…]/healthy-environment-healthy-lives and[…]/tackling-pollution-and-climate-change
