A World Health Organization study says "unhealthy environments" are linked to an estimated 12.6 million deaths every year and that countries aren't doing enough to stop the problem.
According the WHO report, factors like chemical exposures, climate change and pollution in air, water and soil are to blame.
The report's data is from 2012, but the organization is using it to represent a yearly trend.
