There is no ‘safe’ level of air pollution. Implications for Australian policy.
Growing evidence outlined in a newly published position statement from CAR, and led by Professor Graeme Zosky from the University of Tasmania’s Menzies Institute for Medical Research, shows that even very low levels of air pollution are harmful to our health. Professor Zosky said this finding has important implications for how air pollution is regulated in Australia. “It has been firmly established that increases in air pollution are harmful to our health.”
