The city where nonsmokers are dying of lung cancer

India's Delhi has the deadliest air of all the world capitals. The Take explores the roots of the crisis and the government's response.

    Scientists and doctors agree: pollution is killing Indians.

    In 2017, more than one million people in India died from pollution-related illnesses. But the Indian government denies any correlation. Amid a public health emergency, we examine the stark differences in how the crisis is affecting Delhi's rich and poor.

    In this episode, we speak to Neha Tara Mehta, Delhi native and Al Jazeera producer of the documentary, Delhi's Deadly Air.
