Reporting a Case Study on the Effect of Air Pollution on Human Health in Industrial Areas

Due to urban development and increasing industrialization, air pollution has become a major problem in some Latin American and Caribbean countries in the last few years. In addition to manufacturing activities that are mostly concentrated in cities, the main sources of air pollution are automobile emissions and stationary fuel combustion. In selected industrial areas in and around the city of Bangalore, a survey was carried out to investigate the impact of air pollution on human health. These workers were found to have been directly subjected to pollution for about 8 to 10 hours a day. It is noted that, due to air pollution exposure, the population suffers from respiratory illnesses and other issues. It can be concluded that problems such as eye irritations, skin irritation, and respiratory problems are prevalent in the effects of Suspended Particulate Matter and gaseous matter on human beings who live in that environment for around 10 years.
