The most polluted city in the world

Blacksmith Institute, an organization based in New York that supports environmental projects against pollution, recently conducted a study of the most polluted cities in the world.
Research reveals that Linfen, located in the Chinese province of Shanxi, is the most polluted city in the world.
According to the authors, the conclusion is due to accumulation of large amounts of coal dust in the atmosphere and the presence of other harmful particles from industrial emissions and from the use of motor vehicles.
The situation is reflected, say researchers in the health of the 3 million inhabitants.
