Applying current renewable energy standards, ten states in the Midwest and the Great Lakes region of the United States can achieve $ 4.7 billion in health benefits in 2030, a recent MIT study revealed.

According to theVerge, the study explains the health benefits and financial incentives that countries get when they rely on more renewable energy. Besides, moving away from polluting energy also affects air quality.

Exposure to microorganisms from power plants negatively affects respiratory and cardiovascular health, but if countries rely more on renewable energy, air quality will improve and pollution will decrease, contributing to lower rates of lung cancer and heart attacks and strokes between people living there.

“This may also reduce medical bills and lost wages associated with these health effects, resulting in benefits estimated at $ 4.7 billion in 2030 if current standards are adopted,” the researchers said.

The energy standards have been widely applied in 29 states and regions of Colombia, as well as in the European Union, China and India.
