As India undergoes rapid urbanization, industrialization, and lifestyle changes, the burden of air pollution has witnessed a rise. Zooming out to a global perspective, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 99 percent of the population breathes air that exceeds WHO air quality limits. Over 6000 cities in 117 countries are monitoring air quality, yet a huge number of people, especially in under-developed and developing countries, are still exposed to unhealthy levels of toxins in the air. This problem is emerging as a major risk factor for chronic respiratory problems.

In fact, 30 percent of non smoking Indians were found to have weaker lung function compared to their Europeans. The situation has gotten even worse due to the pandemic. In the face of these alarming numbers, pulmonologists in India are on the front lines, battling the fallout of this respiratory health crisis. Among them, Dr. Sathish C Reddy is a noteworthy intervention pulmonologist.
