Ozone pollution linked to increased death rates

Study results in the Journal of the American Medical Association indicate a link between ozone pollution and higher death rates. Researchers estimate that about 4,000 ozone related deaths could be prevented each year in the 95 cities studied (40% of the population) if the ozone pollution was reduced by a third. Ozone is caused by power plants and transport mostly thus people can reduce ozone pollution by reducing motorized transport use and conserving energy. Ozone pollution is also believed to be linked to allergies.
