It seems that northern Italy’s cities’ particle pollution is way above the World Health Organization and EU’s standards. Not only is this a problem for the environment, but it also leads to a host of health problems, like asthma, poor lung development in children and respiratory and heart disease.

Northern Italy is one of my favorite places in the world. It is absolutely gorgeous, and with Venice, Florence and Milan it is also an important region for history, culture and priceless art. Not to mention it is the home to millions of Italians. No matter how you look at it, countries must be responsible for their pollution. EU and WHO standards are there for a reason. It’s a little scary that a first world country with the ability to curb their pollution is ignoring the problem, even when it affects the health of its citizens.
