Blog 8 Air pollution

Published on 9 July 2024 at 23:18

Both indoor and outdoor air pollution can contain substances that are harmful to humans and animals. Automobiles, industry, and forest fires are common sources of air pollution. Air pollution can take many different forms, from smoke indoors to smog hanging over communities, and it poses a major threat to both human health and the environment. In both urban and rural areas, ambient air pollution containing fine particulate matter has been related to lung cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and both acute and chronic respiratory disorders. In addition to harming property, pollution can also hurt the environment by reducing the view in national parks, destroying forests, lakes, and other aquatic bodies, as well as destroying buildings and wildlife.
