Clean air; basic requirement for living a healthy life

The air we breathe must be clean as breathing clean air is a basic requirement for living a healthy life. Clean air can protect us from all kinds of diseases. Every living thing even plants need to breathe clean air. If humans take this seriously and use a mask in case of polluted air, then they will be safe as masks prevent the entry of microbes and polluted air into the lungs. Based on scientific research, metric tons of CO2 are released due to fossil fuel usage. Crude death rate is used to represent health status and CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction, and nitrous oxide emis sions are considered to be indicators of industrial pollution. The research findings indicate that industrial pollution arising from both variables has a detrimental impact on human health and significantly increases the death rate, while an increase in economic growth, number of physicians, urbanization, sanitation facilities and schooling decreases the death rate. Before the Industrial Revolution in Europe, all the cities were clean and there was no issue of air pollution. When Europe began a transition to new manufacturing processes known as the Industrial Revolution, the air started to get polluted. This process included the rise of the mechanized factory system to replace hand production methods, chemical manufacturing, iron production, and an increase in the use of steam and water power, all of which implicated the need for more natural resources such as coal and iron. Based on information of the United Nations agency, almost one in seven of the world’s children, live in areas with the most toxic levels of outdoor air pollution – six or more times higher than international guidelines. Air pollution is a major contributing factor in the deaths of thousands of children under five every year – and it threatens the lives and futures of millions more every day. Pollutants don’t only harm children’s developing lungs – they can actually cross the blood-brain barrier and permanently damage their developing brains – and, thus, their futures. No society can afford to ignore air pollution. Together, outdoor and indoor air pollution are directly linked to pneumonia and other respiratory diseases that account for almost one in 10 under-five deaths, making air pollution one of the leading dangers to children’s health. Children are more susceptible than adults to both indoor and outdoor air pollution as their lungs, brains and immune systems are still developing and their respiratory tracts are more permeable. Young children also breathe faster than adults, and take in more air relative to their body weight. The most disadvantaged, who already tend to have poorer health and inadequate access to health services, are the most vulnerable to illnesses caused by polluted air. In Afghanistan, Kabul, the capital, with its increasing population is facing with negative impacts of air pollution. It is time that the government monitors air quality. If there is too much air pollution, relevant government authorities at the national, provincial or municipal level take should action and find ways to reduce the negative impacts of air pollution.
