This paper statistically analyzes the influence of exhaust gases on the main causes of death at the national level. In the period 2007 - 2019 at national level there was a continuous increase in the number of vehicles leading to an accelerated air pollution even if the pollution norms were more and more restrictive. These chemical changes in air quality lead to the onset or worsening of incurable diseases such as lung disease, tumors or heart disease. With the help of the Pearson statistical function we were able to establish a correlation between the number of vehicles by age categories, or the type of fuel used and the number of deaths caused by the mentioned diseases.
