Pathways to Control Health Diseases Through Remediation of Environmental Pollution

Virendra Goswami

Abstract


In the era of environment, the main cause of health deterioration in the present generation is mainly due to environmental pollution as the air we breathe, food we eat, water we drink and the place we live, all are polluted due to air, water and land (dust, garbage) pollution and contamination. This package of environmental pollution results several life-threatening diseases. for example, air pollution causes 4.2 million premature deaths worldwide each year. approximately 60% deaths are from heart attacks and strokes as fine dust attacks cardiovascular system. 18% deaths are due to chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, 18% lung infection and 6% lung cancer in 2016 (WHO). Air Pollutants (O3, N2O, CO, SO2) of the size of small particulate matter PM 2.5 or <2.5 microns (Ultrafine dust Particles) is the size of virus and can penetrate the lung barrier to enter the blood system leading to local inflammation in blood vessels leading to Atherosclerosis (plaque/fatty deposits), stops blood flow and results heart attack, heart failure, irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias) and Stroke. It’s our moral duty to keep mother Earth free of pollution for the present and future generation. With his view. the efforts have been made to assimilate and innovate the pathways to control health diseases through remediation of environmental pollution. The milestones of the pathways consist the PPI i.e. Public (Government) C, Private (Individual) cooperation and innovation of new technologies. The innovative path to control health diseases advances further with the cause and effect of environmental pollution on health and its remediation through the measures taken globally by the governments, people and innovative technologies to control global warming and climate change through chemical processes and green technologies (renewable energy).
