    Air pollution:-

    In the past, we used to breathe in healthy air. But because of the development and construction of poisonous gases in the environment, the air is becoming more and more toxic day by day. There are some gases that are the cause of many dangerous diseases. Rapid increase of human activities like the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation is the main cause of air pollution. The air pollution causes burning of fossil fuel and firewood, volcanic eruptions, forest fires, smoke released from factories,bombardment, asteroids, carbon oxides and many more. There are also some other air pollutants like industrial waste, agricultural waste, thermal nuclear plants, etc. Air pollution is the main cause of the greenhouse effect, air pollution produces greenhouse gass.Green house gases increase temperature which is the main cause of global warming. Most harmful UV rays can easily penetrate the surface of the earth by the greenhouse gas. This pollution can also effect on human health it cause many skin and other disease in human body like, pollution causes asthma, bronchitis. It can badly effect our lungs, damage cells in the respiratory system.but there are also ways of prevent air pollution, we can improve the quality of air by planting trees, trees are the only way of producing Oxygen. Oxygen can reduce the toxicity in air. The policy for industries related to the filter of gases should be increase. So we have to minimize the toxins released from factories. We can use eco friendly fuels rather than toxic fuels. LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), bio-gas, are some eco-friendly fuels. If we can reduce the amount of harmful toxic gases for air it will heal the environment.
