Over 780 million people are without access to clean drinking water, and around 2.5 billion people do not have access to an adequate sanitation facility (Bradford). There are two primary ways in which water pollution is caused. The first way consists of objects such as trash from a landfill or parts of a boat which have fallen into the water. The other cause is due to fertilizers and other chemicals being spilled into the water ("Pollution"). Once enough pollutants fill the water, it becomes likely for it to become contaminated with dangerous pathogens, which survive on the pollutants and can be dangerous to the wildlife.
In the first place, air pollution could affect the environment notably. Because of the sulfur acid which is produced by human activities, the clouds would gain the acidic material than with the rain fall into the ground. This could adversely affect the nutrients in the soil and pollute the water. Moreover, the rain might damage the buildings or cause disease to human (Eschooltoday, n.d). The other environment problem caused by air pollution is global warming.
It fills lakes and obstructs shipping channels, clogs hydroelectric turbines, and makes drinking water purification costlier. Besides air pollution, there is also water pollution which is also caused by many variants causing more health issues to drinking supplies. Today people oppose this argument by saying that water pollution is easily not harmful to the environment. This is not true because today because many countries have water problems due to low water sources caused by trash and erosion. Water pollution is also another harmful type of pollution that should be cleaned to better the water in the
Unfortunately our oceans are suffering from many types of pollutants that are prominent in our environment. One of the main distributors of pollution is sewage. Sewage and other polluting substances flow into the world's rivers and drainage pipes until all of the substances dump out into the ocean. In addition to sewage, other chemicals finds its way to the oceans, which leads to the reduction of oxygen being released into the atmosphere. With this in place, the waters become murky and filled with substances that can harm marine life.
Water pollution is caused by many things, but one reason is because we put many chemicals in the rivers In the essay on water pollution: Sources, Effects and control of water pollution, by Puja Mondal explains “ several types of liquid effluents contaminating toxic chemicals, acid and bases, are added to the rivers and other water bodies. This quote explain how this toxic chemicals contaminated or water. Other thing that cause water pollution are the factories they contaminated a lot or water. In the essay on water pollution: sources, effects and control of water pollution by Puja Mondal, explains “ Many industrial are causing thermal pollution leading to higher temperatures… They use a lot of water to the steam at higher temperature, which affect the biotic components in the aquatic habit. This quote explain how this industries contributed to water pollution.
In recent years there has been a growing awareness of the health problems associated with environmental factors. Therefore, numerous studies of how different factors affect population's health have significantly developed. In this essay the effects of air pollution and water pollution on public health will be discussed and some evidences will be provided to show how such pollution affects health. One of the most serious factors affecting public health is ecological factors. Ecological factors include exposure to organic chemical air pollutants, such as sand, fumes and pesticides.
However, little attention was paid until the beginning of this century to combat the lethal effects of industrial and domestic pollutants. Pollution of environment may be air, water, and soil caused by gaseous and other effluents from industries which are usually released into the soil or rivers. These in time can cause enormous harm to man, animal and vegetation. The universal concern against pollutants in the environment was first expressed at the United Nations Conference on Human Environment held in 1972 at
Several efforts have been made over recent years to maintain a safe and clean environment. However, environmental pollution is getting worst and poses a major threat to the Earth. Environmental pollution is “the contamination of the physical and biological components of the Earth to such an extent that normal environmental processes are adversely affected” (Kemp, 1998, p. 129). There are five known pollution which is in the form of air, water, land, noise and light (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1). The first type of pollution is air pollution.
It fills lakes, and obstructs shipping channels, clogs hydroelectric turbines, and makes drinking water purification costlier. Besides air pollution there is also water pollution which is also caused by many variants causing more health issues to drinking supplies. Today people oppose this argument by saying that water pollution is easily not harmful to the environment. This is not true because today because many countries have water problems due to low water sources caused by trash and erosion.

Judy Jo 9JMD Water Pollution There are a lot of global issues disturbing people’s lives and one of them is water pollution. Water pollution is when water gets dirty and harmful substances goes in the water and water gets polluted. And it is one of the most serious thing we are facing this days. It happens by people throwing rubbish in lake, ocean, and river. Also, by factories leaking toxic in the water secretly.
