Air pollution was found to be the biggest culprit around the world, followed by polluted water. The Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health also noted that almost all pollution-linked deaths – around 92 percent – were in poor or middle-income countries, and as many as a quarter of such deaths were reported from rapidly industrialising countries including India.
