Research Proposal On Air Pollution
Research on Health Effects from Air Pollution Decades of research have shown that air pollutants such as ozone and particulate matter (PM) increase the amount and seriousness of lung and heart disease and other health problems.
Air pollution is the contamination of air due to the presence of substances in the atmosphere that are harmful to the health of humans and other living beings, or cause damage to the climate or to materials. There are many different types of air pollutants, such as gases (including ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane, carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological molecules. Air pollution can cause diseases, allergies, and even death to humans; it can also cause harm to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, and may damage the natural environment (for example, climate change, ozone depletion or habitat degradation) or built environment (for example, acid rain). Air pollution can be caused by both human activities and natural phenomena.
This paper is about the air pollution in general. The Phenomena of acid rain and depletion of ozone layer are the consequences of air pollution. Effective measures are needed to control the problem as it is injurious to health, lives and sustenance of the earth Download full paper File format: .doc, available for editing
According to the study conducted by European Commission in the 2005, pollution of air reduces the life expectancy of human being by an average on nine months. The causes of the deaths are lung and heart diseases, asthma, respiratory allergies and emphysema.
