In most of the time, individuals are unaware of the air they breathe. This is because they have no knowledge of the health risks and illnesses that could be caused by breathing in unhealthy air. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 90% of the world’s population lives in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits.
Air Quality is a serious issue we must tackle immediately. The result is global warming, but we do not necessarily realize it. It is actually a combination of several contributing factors, including air pollution, which affects our health and not only that, but also causes environmental damage.
In short, pollutants are chemical substances or particles in the air that harm human health and the environment. Air pollutants are a range of gases and particles that pollute our atmosphere. They can cause respiratory disease or aggravate existing conditions, as well as damage to vegetation or cause acid rain.
The effects of air pollution in our daily lives
People who live in areas with high pollution are more likely to develop respiratory diseases such as asthma. Air pollution can also contribute to lung cancer. Furthermore, pregnant women who are exposed to high levels of air pollution have an increased risk of delivering a low birth weight baby. Children who grow up in highly polluted areas are also more at risk for developing chronic respiratory diseases. If these children live in these environments for a long time, it is possible that they will develop asthma when they grow up. Adults who live in polluted areas also may develop lung cancer, heart disease, and respiratory problems.
The best way to prevent these terrible health problems is to take measures against air pollution through control measures and information campaigns about the state of the environment. However this can be difficult since there is no precise method to know how bad the environment is when everywhere has high levels of pollutants.
Air pollution is a big environmental problem that affects all corners of the world and we can not stand idle or indifferent because we will all suffer its consequences if we do not react now. The best thing we can do is start by small steps like not letting cars park near buildings or schools and always walk instead of taking transport if it is possible, by
