Industrial Pollution Effects


Aileen Nunez


It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Having grown increasingly concerned about our environment’s problems and their consequences, I decided to take the initiative and do something for the environment’s benefit. Industrial pollution manifests itself in a variety of ways. It contaminates multiple sources of drinking water, releases unwelcome toxins into the air, and degrades the quality of soil worldwide. Pollution can be classified according to its source — air, water, or soil — or by its type, which may include chemicals, noise, or light. While some sources of pollution are indirect, such as automobiles, agriculture, and buildings, others can be more precisely identified as discrete emission locations. The majority of these source locations are industrial, such as factories and power plants.
Outdoor air pollution, according to the World Health Organization, is responsible for approximately 2% of all heart and lung diseases, nearly 5% of all lung cancers, and approximately 1% of all chest infections.
