[en] Recently, the World Health Organization’s International Association for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified outdoor air pollution as carcinogenic to humans and now puts air pollution in the same category as tobacco smoke, UV radiation and plutonium. Exposure to ambient fine particles was recently estimated to have contributed 3.2 million premature deaths worldwide in 2010. The ambient air across the globe is polluted by emissions from motor vehicles, industrial processes, power generation, household combustion of solid fuel, and other sources. Dust
storms lead to particulate levels that exceed internationally recommended levels especially in West Africa but this source of air pollution is under-studied, particularly in the literature devoted to human health impacts.
