Did you know that nine out of 10 people worldwide breathe polluted air?

Air pollution is difficult to escape, irrespective of the area one resides in. It is all around us. The health effects of air pollution are serious – one third of deaths from stroke, lung cancer, and heart disease are due to air pollution. This is having the equivalent effect of smoking tobacco, and much higher than, say, the effects of eating too much salt.

Join our Science Majlis, led by Dr. Mohammed Ayoub, from Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute, and participate in a lively discussion about the air quality in Qatar. You don’t have to be a scientist to enrich Science Majlis with your questions and opinions.
