Air Quality is deteriorated by ambient air pollution having particulate matter (PM), black carbon and noxious gases. Ambient air pollution has been reported to affect the bone health globally in longitudinal studies , and few geographical locations are notorious for air pollution globally and specifically in India. Such places are having hazardous and very severe levels of air quality . Delhi NCR has witnessed some of the alarming waves of air pollution recently. Air quality index (AQI) – particulate matter may vary from hazardous (300 and above) to good (below 50). It Is easy to monitor AQI using data from reliable sources like government installed panels. There is also a seasonal variation in air pollution levels and musculoskeletal complaints that may be mediated by vitamin D levels .
