The impact of air pollution on children. 6. Foreword. It causes miscarriages, early delivery, and low birth weight. It contributes to diseases that.
Along with the health effects, it also causes distinct environmental effects and those are as follows: Lead researcher Professor Deborah Cory-Slechta said that "When we looked closely at the ventricles , we could see that the white matter that normally surrounds them hadn't fully developed. It may cause diseases, allergies and even death to humans; it may also cause harm to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, and may damage the natural or built environment. Fung As clear explanations are not always stressed in non-technical literature, care should be taken to distinguish between several forms of relevant diseases.
To give a precise meaning of air pollution is a complex thing and can state that pollution began to include in air when human beings started burning fuels.
Enhancement in global concentrations of gasses of greenhouse like carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide is also known as air pollution. We can purify the above statement by considering man-made emissions of hazardous chemicals as air pollution but this consideration has an adverse effect too.
Primary Pollutants and Secondary Pollutants: Basically, contaminants are of two types and they are as follows: Primary contaminants: The important primary contaminants which are hazardous in high amount are as follows: Secondary contaminants or pollutants: The important secondary contaminants which are hazardous in high amount are as follows: From the last few decades, air pollution has been controlled all over the world through laws and regulations.
Some of them are as follows: Classification of Air Pollutants and their Trends: The categories of air pollution and their trends are as follows: Now, let us know about criteria pollution in detail as it has few trends to explain.
Criteria contaminants regulated by United States- Environmental Protection Agency and many countries are as below: The following figure explains about concentrations of criteria pollutants: The below diagram explains about major sources of air pollution.
The diagram is as below: Calif Med. Paul Kotin and Hans L.

Abstract An experimental study of the effect of air pollutants on health can be undertaken only subsequent to the creation of synthetically polluted atmosphere in exposure chambers as a readily available and easily controllable laboratory tool.
