Pollution In India: Every year millions of people lose their lives all over the world due to pollution. The fight against pollution is bigger than smoking and HIV. Shocking statistics have come out about pollution around the world. A research has revealed that due to pollution in India, about 24 lakh people lost their lives in a year. Apart from this, 9.8 people have lost their lives due to air pollution. Experts have expressed deep concern over the deaths and their horrors caused by breathing in this toxic air. In the year 2019, about 9 million people have died due to pollution all over the world.
Pollution is more affected by drugs
It has been said that man-made waste does not kill people immediately after getting into the air, water and soil, but causes heart disease, cancer, respiratory problems, diarrhea and other deadly serious diseases. The Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health has said that the impact of pollution on global health is much greater than that of war, terrorism, malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, drugs and alcohol. Pollution is a threat to the existence of human health.
Not much improvement from 2015 estimate
Richard Fuller, lead author of the report by the Global Alliance on Health and Pollution, said that if we cannot manage to grow clean and green, then we are doing something very wrong. Chemical pollution also damages biodiversity, which is another major global threat. He said that these things are very connected and the strategies of dealing with someone have an impact in every way. Overall, one in six premature deaths globally were due to pollution, an improvement over the previous 2015 estimate. The researchers found that with major improvements in Africa, mortality rates associated with indoor air pollution, polluted drinking water and inadequate sanitation decreased. But outdoor air and chemical pollution associated with industrialization is increasing, especially in southern and eastern Asia.
