Air pollution prematurely kills seven million people every year. In Choked Beth Gardiner travels the world - taking readers from Washington to India - to expose the political decisions and economic forces that keep so many of us breathing dirty air. She meets the scientists transforming our understanding of pollution’s effects on the body and the ordinary people fighting for cleaner air. At a time when it’s never been more important to understand one of the world’s most urgent health threats, we ask Beth to share her findings and vision for a healthier future.
