Nowadays our world is changing because of lots of forms of pollution. In this post I’d like to list some of the most dangerous:
For everything we take from the Earth, there is a consequence. Perhaps pollution is a symptom of nature's imbalance. Some people take from the Earth, but countless others become sick, displaced or harmed due to the resulting pollution — affecting wildlife and more.
In the wake of the Gulf oil spill, the harmful effects of marine oil spills are obvious. Birds, fish and other marine life can be devastated from a spill, and the ecosystems often take decades to recover.
Most radioactive waste comes because of nuclear power plants and nuclear weapons reprocessing, but it can also be the by-products of medical and industrial procedures, coal or mineral mining, or oil processes. All radioactive waste carries the potential for water and air contamination.
-Urban air pollution
According to the World Health Organization, 2.4 million people die every year primarily because of air pollution. Urban areas such as Los Angeles, Mumbai, Cairo, Beijing and many of the world's most populated cities have the worst air quality.
Many plastics are toxic. Vinyl chloride (PVC), is a known carcinogen, and bisphenol A (BPA) can disrupt endocrine function, can cause insulin resistance and it has been linked to heart disease. Plastics biodegrade slowly, in some cases lasting for hundreds of thousands of years.
Pesticides, chemicals and untreated manure are the most dangerous forms of agricultural pollution because they end up in the water supply.
