Overview

This important book shows how pollution can cause health problems in humans. It categorizes the various kinds of pollution in our environment (water, air, land, and global warming) and explains how each can cause both minor and severe health problems, such as breathing problems, rashes, headaches, cancer, lead poisoning, and more. The book includes striking photography of once-beautiful but now destroyed countrysides and waste-choked waterways, while explaining how damage to our environment can result in a lower quality of health. A range of topics is covered, including: how to identify health problems resulting from pollution; how our governments and industries are working toward cleaning up existing pollution and reducing future contamination to the environment; the areas of the world with the highest concentration of pollution and how human life there is impacted; and the facts about indoor air pollution in your home, in your office, or on an airplane.
