People Of the Country Choke, As Pollution Level Rises

Air pollution has been declared as the biggest health risk with its immediate effect being hard to ignore. People don’t understand the complexities of the cause and effect of the alarming rise in pollution level.

The impact of airborne particles which are invisible to the naked eyes can lead to chronic illness such as heart issues, neurological illness or even cancer. Families have started complaining about respiratory issues at an early age since they are being exposed to indoor and outdoor air pollutants for a long period of time. The rapid increase in pollution level has even degraded the living standards in big cities.
