Air Pollution Map lets you check levels all over London

It’s a well-known fact that the capital is not known for its clean air, and its history reminds us all of the Great Smog of 1952.

Of course, air quality has improved over the past sixty years with the introduction of the ULEZ, electric cars and buses and the end of the coal flow.

But it is still known that air pollution levels in London are very bad and harmful to many, especially those with heart and lung problems or asthma.

Despite major efforts to improve air quality, the capital still did not meet World Health Organization (WHO) air quality limits.

But thanks to a new interactive map, you can now check the exact levels of air pollution in your area.

The map was created by The Central Office of Public Interest and Imperial College London and lists all levels of pollutants.

All you have to do is enter your zip code and you will get the exact air quality report for the location.

With areas of SE10 with very high pollution levels and more than three WHO limits.

In addition, it even reduces the health risk that living in the pollution levels could cause, with the potential for asthma, endangering lung functions and promoting cancer, in fact showing that over 19% of strokes were attributed to the exposure.

But it’s not all bad news, as the report was created to show the harm of air pollution and the change you can make.

With its ‘Request Action’ button that hopes to help brokers “act lawfully and disclose air pollution ratings on all property listings”.

Adding: “Air pollution is the greatest environmental risk to public health and, like asbestos, is a cause of cancer.

“People need to know. Everyone has a right to know what they’re breathing.”
