Air Pollution

Air Pollution - A court has ruled that the French state failed to take sufficient action to curb air pollution in Paris. The landmark decision concerns the case by a mother and daughter who said their health had deteriorated when living near a busy ring road in the city. But all their problems disappeared when they moved out, they say. According to the Public Health France agency air pollution is responsible for 48,000 premature deaths every year.
