Emissions from Tata Steel's Dutch plant reduce life expectancy, research shows.



People living close to Tata Steel's Dutch steelworks have a life expectancy that is 2.5 months lower than the average for the Netherlands due to the plant's emissions, the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment said on Friday.
The Institute said its research showed that exposure to particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide increases the risk of lung cancer and that 4% of the new cases in the area could be attributed to the emissions from the plant.

            The research findings linking Tata Steel's emissions to reduced life expectancy are deeply concerning. It's a stark reminder of the real health consequences associated with industrial emissions and their impact on communities. Urgent action is needed to address air quality and reduce emissions to safeguard public health and combat climate change. 🏭🌬️🌍 #AirQuality #ClimateAction
