Pollution does not have a direct effect on life expectancy

Eurostat data (life spectancy / pollution) shows that the pollution does not have a crucial effect on life expectancy. If we appreciate the graphic of the most long-lived countries of the European Union, Switzerland does not have the minimum percentage of pollution, and despite of this fact, its life expectancy is the highest of Europe. However, in the less life expectancy countries of the E.U. we can appreciate that its pollution is  far less than in countries with high life expectancy. That suggests that the most developed countries have longer life expectancies. (This data is pproximated and it´s important to take to account factors such as the geographic extension)
