Exposure to Air Pollution Linked to High Blood Pressure

What is Air Pollution?

The Earth is bounded by a shield of air (made up of various gases) called the atmosphere. Without the atmosphere, we will be exposed to intense heat by day and frozen by low temperature at night. Life on earth is made possible because of the atmosphere.
