It not just creates serious impact on the lungs and the respiratory system of the body but the pollutants are carried through blood to different parts and become the reason behind several health condition. The pollutants in the air also get deposited on plants and vegetables which we eventually eat and they get in our body.

Doctor's advice is to thoroughly wash the vegetables and fruits before eating but there can be some bacteria left which can effect human health. Thus it is very important that we take adequate measures to control and prevent pollution.

Air Pollution is also caused by gasses released from factories, vehicles etc. Here are some gases that can really be harmful to health.

Tobacco smoke not just effects the person who is enjoying the puff but it also effects the person standing near him/her. They are called passive smokers and the health problems that both active and passive smoker can face are burning sensation in eye and nose, cough and irritation in throat and asthma. Serious health problems include cancer, lungs disorder, and heart problems.

4. The existence of carbon monoxide not just pollutes the air but when inhaled, it mixes with the hemoglobin in blood. Presence of carbon monoxide in blood reduces the amount of oxygen in it which will eventually effect the function of our heart and lungs.
