The effects of air pollution are alarming. It causes global warming, acid rains, respiratory and heart problems. Pollution disturbes the balance of our ecosystems, affect our normal lifestyles and gives rise to human illnesses and global warming. Pollution has reached its peak due to the development and modernization in our lives.
People don’t realize how seriously the pollution affects our health. One third of the deaths in India are caused due to heart attacks, lung cancer, respiratory infection, heart problems which are slowly caused by the air pollutants that give rise to air pollution.
Like humans, animals can suffer from a number of health problems too due to air pollution, including birth defects, reproductive failure, and diseases. Air pollution causes a number of environmental effects in addition to the effects on humans and animals.

Pollution has negatively affected the life of both animals and humans. Protecting the environment is a long and daunting task, for every living person. We can now only protect our enviroment from pollution is by making smart transportation choices, using public transport, walking whenever its possible to walk and avoiding transport. Keeping our lights turned off whenever not in use. Following the formula of reduce, reuse, recycle. By decreasing waste, implementing recycling policies, banning dangerous agricultural chemicals, and developing safe renewable energy we can significantly reduce the amount of pollution going into the environment annually and increase our quality of living.
