Lamentably some people don´t have access to these 20% of clean water and they have to use the contaminated one leading to skin problems, death, etc. “Honduras has a high concentration of polluted rivers, it turned human activity and population growth ... The Choluteca, Chamelecón and Ulua rivers are the most sensitive cases of contamination, receiving wastewater from the cities of Tegucigalpa and Valle de Sula, receive industrial wastes, agricultural chemicals used or manufactured in the basins, landfills and sediments on its banks, among others.”( Jose, no pg) To be brief hondurans should be more conscious about what they´re doing because when they contaminate the country they are actually making a damage to themselves and to further generations that
Finishes such as flame retardants, adding softeners for a luxurious handfeel, dyeing, printing, add value to the textile. Unfortunately vast amounts of chemicals and water are used during the various processes. The contaminated water is then released into ground, rivers and seas. Water is just one of the natural resources that are heavily polluted by the textile industry but it affects the ecosystem in a negative way. High water consumption Water is quickly becoming a scarce resource in certain countries.
“Nearly one half of all Americans—an estimated 150 million—live in areas that don’t meet federal air quality standards” (Vehicles, Air Pollution). Out of all pollution, 33% comes directly from the transportation sector and the emissions produced by gasoline burning engines (Heckeroth). The primary sources of this pollution comes from passenger vehicles and heavy duty trucks that belch out ozone, unburned hydrocarbons, particulate matter, and other smog forming gases. The health concerns from these toxic chemicals are extremely serious. Polluted air can cause asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory issues, while increasing the risk of potentially fatal conditions such as cancer.
Air pollution has a big effect on global warming along with energy. Energy and air pollution will affect this world bad in the future. Global warming has remained a subject all across the world throughout the twenty first century. Air pollution and energy security requires a massive effort by individuals, communities, businesses, nonprofits, and policy makers around the world. Many of the air pollutions problems of the past are now under control, but new problems have come out in the form of damage to the ozone, layer acid rain , and many other serious problem that are affecting the earth in a negative way.
Principal factors that determines toxicity of organs and tissues are accumulation of toxins in the body at a higher rate than the body 's process of eliminating them: Modern pollution is a very considerable burden on the detoxification system of the body. Nowadays, most pollution, especially those we bring into our homes, is unavoidable. Food is contaminated, to a more or lesser degree by antibiotic drugs, pesticides, additives, industrial fall-out onto crops and animal foodstuffs. Tap water is highly polluted â€“ and undergoes many chemical treatments.Toxins are inescapable Chronic heavy metal poisoning has become a major problem in modern society, lead, arsenic, nickel, mercury, cadmium and aluminium included under this category. These chemicals drift into, and are accumulated by kidney and brain tissue and affect the immune system.
There are many reasons for these problems. For example, if one person throws trash out of his or her car can really affect our planet. As humans, we are born to develop and try to use or brains in the right way, but unfortunately, we are heading the wrong direction. There are many issues, and the most serious environmental concern is pollution. Pollution is the cause of many problems we are facing today.
The most dangerous forms of pollution in India are air and water. India is facing major pollution issues due to air and water contamination, which will be discussed further on in this paper. Due to India’s importance in size and population, solutions to control air and water pollution are not only subject to India itself but also to the rest of the planet. Only in
It comprises of a multitude of components with valuable materials, most containing toxic substances that can have an adverse impact on the environment and human health. The facts mentioned before says it all. In country like India, coupled with inappropriate infrastructural facilities and procedures for its disposal and recycling has posted a significance importance of e waste management in India. Most people are not aware of the potential negative impact of the rapidly increasing use of monitors, computers and televisions. They pose serious health risk and when these products are placed in landfills.
Petroleum hydrocarbon pollution as a great environment concern : Hydrocarbon contamination in the environment related to anthropogenic sources could be from petroleum, pesticides or any toxic organic matter. The most serious problem of hydrocarbons contamination that derived from petroleum because it has a great toxic effect to the surrounding environment of all systems of life. The term of petroleum hydrocarbon is defined as a complex mixture composed of many hydrocarbon deposits which is naturally found deep under the surface of the ground. And it is known as crude oil when it derives out from the ground. The petroleum hydrocarbon is treated into a variety of products such as diesel, gasoline, kerosene and asphalt which they have many different usage in industrial fields.
ABSTRACT: Nowadays, the biggest problem faced by the society and the ecosystem is the way in which the trash is disposed. The residential and commercial trash collected by municipality vans is either buried, burned or thrown away in the places that are not a part of disposal process. Due to high rate of waste thrown away, and the ways used to store them, causes air, water and soil pollution. There is an increased generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) because of rapid urbanization of cities all around the globe, which will ultimately affect the quality of life of people. Although the government has taken actions against this, but the improper practices and management of waste has ultimately led to
