Just like air, pollution of air is also widespread across the country. Cities, towns, streets, and roads including indoors have not been spared by air pollution. Dust, smoke, and gases originating from vehicles, cigarette smoke, factories, building construction, etc. are the major sources of this ever-spreading pollution, and it’s as dangerous as it gets.
PM2.5 particles are the main components in polluted air, and it is 40 times smaller than a hair on our head. Particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) which is found in polluted air gives rise to long term pulmonary ailments, allergies, and chronic respiratory diseases. The worst part is that this polluted air travels beyond its source, hence where one lives doesn’t matter.
