Asthma carbon footprint equivalent to meat eaters!

Nov 02, 2019 18:36 IST

People with asthma have as big a carbon footprint as meat eaters because some inhalers release greenhouse gases linked to global warming in the atmosphere, according to researchers from the Cambridge University. They suggest using 'green inhalers' as an alternative to metered-dose inhalers to reduce the carbon footprint. Using a dry powder inhaler could help save the environment from approximately 400 kilos of carbon dioxide a year. However, researchers also suggest taking proper advise from a medical specialist before making the transition.
