    Documents the deadly story of air pollution caused by vehicles. Vehicular pollution is no longer just an intangible threat in India - it contributes to a shocking 64 per cent of the total pollution in Delhi, 52 per cent in Mumbai and 30 per cent in Kolkata. In just seven years, the number of vehicles in India has shot up by 17 million and 48 per cent of these vehicles are in the three metros alone. Bad vehicular technology, poor fuel quality, poor vehicle maintenance, non-existent traffic planning and confused governance work together to discount public health.

  9. Body Burden: Lifestyle Diseases Body Burden: Lifestyle Diseases

    Body Burden: Lifestyle Diseases

    Lifestyle diseases or non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are responsible for more than 61 per cent of all deaths in India.

    Whether it is heart diseases, respiratory illnesses, cancer, obesity or food allergies, emerging research reveals that the rise in their incidences is due to environmental factors—rapid urbanisation, air pollution and changes in diet—rather than your genes.

    These diseases result in huge economic losses. In 2015, this amounted to US$237 billion for India. Body Burden: Lifestyle Diseases, captures the finer points of what latest research and surveys have to offer and presents the views of subject specialists. More importantly, it details pathways that we need to adopt to reverse this trend, including what you as an individual can do to guard yourself against these diseases.
