Air pollution and its impact on human Health in India: A Review
Air pollution in India is one of the most serious health issue. Air pollution contributes to the premature deaths of 2 million Indians every year. In the present study is designed to find out the highest annual levels of air pollution and its adverse effects on human health in India. Emissions come from vehicles and industry, whereas in rural areas, much of the pollution stems from biomass burning for cooking and keeping warm. In autumn and winter months, large scale crop residue burning in agriculture fields, is a major source of smoke, smog and particulate pollution.
